The American Chronic Pain Association has declared September as Pain Awareness Month.
Pain Awareness Month is “a time when various organizations work to raise public awareness of issues in the area of pain and pain management. In early 2001, the American Chronic Pain Association established a Pain Awareness Campaign. This undertaking pulled together a number of organizations across the country whose missions complement the ACPA’s under the umbrella of Partners for Understanding Pain. A key element of the effort was to establish September as Pain Awareness Month.” -American Chronic Pain Association
