About us

Pain Support ACT (PSACT) has supported Canberra region people with chronic pain through support, information and advocacy for many years.

This work is now continuing under Arthritis ACT which now embraces people with pain of any kind.  Under Arthritis ACT, you will be able to access activities similar to those conducted by PSACT as well as a large suite of relevant programs offered by Arthritis ACT.  These programs are now catering for people with pain of any kind, not just musculoskeletal pain.

For membership and renewal enquiries, call 62512055.

The mission

The mission of Pain Support ACT was been to promote the well-being and health of people living with chronic or persistent pain, their families and carers, in the ACT and region.  This continues under the broadened work of Arthritis ACT Inc.

The vision

The vision of Pain Support ACT was a society where all people with persistent or chronic pain are treated with respect and have timely access to high quality, evidence-based services and community support to help them to improve their health and well-being. This vision continues under the work of Arthritis ACT Inc.
