Supported by U.S. Pain Foundation. Powered by the chronic pain community.

What is Pain Awareness Month?

In 2011, a coalition of groups and organizations established September as a month to nationally recognize the chronic pain community. Named Pain Awareness Month (PAM), the goal was to increase awareness about how pain affects families, communities, the nation and the individual while also educating caregivers and healthcare professionals about various treatment options available to pain patients.

Throughout the entire month of September, endeavors are carried out by patient-centered organizations and people living with pain further expand the concept that chronic pain is a complex and stigmatized disease. PAM unifies the chronic pain population through an empowering approach such as events, virtual campaigns, visual awareness initiatives, and social media activities.

Join the 30-Day Challenge on social media

The 30-Day Challenge is an online, interactive initiative that allows participants to participate in daily challenges posted on the U.S. Pain Foundation’s Facebook page. Most days the challenge will ask you to carry out a task that can be completed within the comfort of your own home. All you need is internet access and a mobile device or laptop! When you participate in the challenges, use the hashtags: #USPainPAM17 #PAM17 #PainAwarenessMonth #USPain. 

Show support by changing your profile pic!

Show your support for the over 100 million Americans living with the complex and invisible disease known as chronic pain. A free graphic program will allow you to select a portrait of you and will automatically overlay a special PAM 2017 template. When you change your pic, use the hashtags: #USPainPAM17 #PAM17 #PainAwarenessMonth #USPain.

Together, we can make the invisible, visible!
