Members of the volunteer TNA Support Network provide support and information that empowers patients to make informed decisions about their treatment of TN and related facial pain conditions.
Serving as one-on-one support for facial pain patients, families, friends and medical professionals in their area, this vital link further strengthens TNA’s ability to provide local information in a timely and accurate fashion. The Support Network is an important source of help, hope and encouragement to those suffering from TN and related facial pain. Through discussions with fellow patients, our patients learn not only treatment information but how to more effectively cope with the devastating emotional challenges of this incredibly painful disorder.
The Facial Pain Association (formerly The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association) Support Network has been established in many cities in the U.S., Canada, and internationally. New groups and network patient contacts are constantly being developed, so if you don’t see a contact in your area or if you would be interested in becoming involved, please contact Ron Irons, TNA Support Group Services.
