New participants are always welcome to join our ongoing group. The group is designed to be an ongoing experience. We understand schedules vary; however, we encourage you to take part as often as you can. For this reason, we prefer you register for the series of meetings rather than just one. If you are interested in a drop-in group, please consider joining one of the other available Support Group Virtual meetings.

Peer Mentors

There is great value in speaking to someone who has “walked a mile in your shoes”. Our Peer Mentors welcome you to call or email them – our list provides information about their diagnoses, symptoms, treatments, age, location and other details so that you can decide who to contact. For the list of Peer Mentors please contact the FPA National Office 352-384-3600.

Facebook Network

Our Facebook Forum allows you to chat with others who also have experience with various forms of facial pain. You can talk about issues you might be having while coping with facial pain, speak with those who have remedies for pain, or just sympathize and encourage others who are going through the same thing. Sign up and join the discussion here.
