FPA Support Groups are open to everyone affected by neuropathic facial pain. We welcome caregivers, partners and family members as well. Choose in-person meetings in your area, or join us online for a Zoom virtual meeting.

Groups vary in the frequency of meetings. Some groups meet every other month, quarterly, or twice a year. Some meetings include speakers on relevant TN topics while others may be strictly supportive; frequently meetings feature elements of both. Simply attending meetings, listening to the experiences of others and being among others who have ‘walked a mile in your shoes’ can be very helpful.
Local Groups offer gatherings for a specific geographic location, so there is a familiarity that comes from shared community experiences that can strengthen bonds among participants.
Virtual (Zoom) Groups are available for anyone, anywhere. If there is no FPA group in your area, or attending a local group is not possible, join any of our virtual groups from the comfort of your own home.
Weekly Group: 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. Monday nights at 8:00 pm Eastern Time; facilitated by Michele Cohen, LCSW.

Monthly Groups: We currently offer a daytime and an evening group. For an invitation to the next meeting, email Regina Gore at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Become a Leader: FPA Support Groups are led by volunteers – they are people affected by facial pain, just like you. Support Group Leaders schedule and coordinate meetings in their local communities and/or via Zoom. FPA provides ongoing help for our Leaders to ensure they have everything they need to run successful groups. Support group meetings provide opportunities to learn about topics of interest through educational presentations and guest speakers as well as offering supportive time for caring, sharing and networking with attendees.
