The Comfort Ability | Online Chats

The Comfort Ability offers monthly online chats for children and adolescents with chronic pain. The chats are a safe place for individuals who share a common condition to ask questions, discuss concerns and offer each other support. The health professionals who moderate the chats will not be able to give you specific medical or psychological advice but will be able to provide you with general information and resources.

Moderators who provide health information are professionals at Boston Children’s Hospital and are identified during chats with a professional title. Please note that any chat participant who is not identified in this way should not be considered as a health professional. All chat participants must only submit information that is true and accurate and provide valid sources for any medical or health information. Advertising is prohibited on all of our chats.
