Navigating Life's Challenges

Thrive: A Support Program for Chronic Pain

Living with Chronic Pain is a challenge. When you have pain with depression, it may feel overwhelming. Depression magnifies pain and makes it more difficult to cope with the challenges of daily living. If you are living with chronic pain and depression, you are not alone.

    • Thrive is an ongoing weekly group that focuses on how to thrive, not just survive, while living with chronic pain or chronic illness.

• We focus on how to honor and respect our pain while also cultivating full, rich lives.

• We share experiences, ideas, and most importantly, support each other.

• We explore evidenced-based methods including: cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, stress-reduction, and positive psychology techniques.

Thrive offers understanding and effective counseling and support for people with chronic pain and depression.We meet each Wednesday from 11:30 to 1:00 in our Keene office.
