APMA LogoLiving with pain can be a miserable existence, but the Australian Pain Management Association (APMA) gives hope that with the right treatment and life skills, your pain will improve and you can enjoy life again. APMA is a non-profit organisation which supports the one in five Australians who live with persistent (chronic) pain. Their Pain Link helpline (1300 340 357) assists people all around Australia with information and options to help manage their pain.

APMA has launched a local pain-support group in Surrey Hills and they are inviting everyone in the community who lives with persistent pain to attend. The new pain-support group will base its program using  a new self-management strategy each month to teach people essential skills to manage their pain.

Meetings take place the 1st Monday of each month at the Holy Trinity Church located on 187 Union Road, Surrey Hills. APMA is a three minute walk from the train station and there is lots of parking right near the church.

There is also a facebook group if people need to chat.

Hayley and Marika are pain advocates and members of APMA and are available for communication on FB or you can call them directly:  Marika  0406450317 or Hayley 0457 172 090.
