New Zealand Painful Bladder Support Group (NZPBSG) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Christchurch, and has membership throughout New Zealand. The group began in 1995, and has grown to over 200 members nationwide. NZPBSG provides a range of support and services to help you and your family understand and manage PBS.

We can also facilitate contact with group members in your area, create individual management plans, and provide counselling, advice, and a listening ear.
