Facial Paralysis Support Group Meetings

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 to all involved.

We currently have active 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.

If you are interested in being added to our contact list for upcoming meetings, then please contact us at: facialparalysisfound@gmail.com .
