CRPS Support Groups
Kiwi CRPS provides positive support groups to help connect all New Zealanders living with, or supporting someone with, complex regional pain syndrome.
We understand that CRPS can greatly limit your ability to get out of the house and deal with social interactions, thus increasing the feelings of isolation. To help combat this our support groups are nationwide and are conducted primarily through Facebook, allowing us to connect with you anytime, anywhere.
What happens when you join?
When you apply to join a Kiwi CRPS support group, you will be asked to fill in a brief questionnaire.
After you have been accepted, we will send you a welcome pack full of useful information and introduce you to the group. Some areas around the country host regular face to face meetings and the board host virtual coffee group meetings monthly for members to participate in.
All members are also invited to attend workshops and talks that are arranged when there is the opportunity or interest; and everyone is encouraged to participate in annual events such as CRPS awareness month in November when international events such as Color The World Orange take place.
