Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Support Groups

The Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Foundation sponsors support groups for those dealing with the physical, emotional and social effects of Bell’s palsy and long-term facial paralysis. We believe that connecting with others who are experiencing many of the same challenges and concerns is of great benefit.

We currently have support group meetings in the following locations:

  • Garden Grove, California
  • Beverly Hills, California
  • San Diego, California
  • Portland, Oregon vicinity

We also periodically sponsor online support group meetings, which are accessible from most computers and smartphones.
