About TNA Australia Support Groups

Support Groups of The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association of Australia were formed to offer information, support and encouragement to patients, families and friends of sufferers. Knowledge is power and your understanding can be their greatest support.

Our Objective is to provide information, support and encouragement to sufferers, their families and supporters.

Our Mission is to promote awareness of trigeminal neuralgia and other facial pain amongst patients, families, the community and the medical and dental professionals who treat them.

Our Goal is to encourage a unified understanding and improved approach to treatments of TN and other facial nerve pains at a national level and to improve treatments and approaches to pain management.

Our Vision is to improve the quality of life and treatment of chronic facial pain sufferers locally, nationally and internationally.

Admission to ALL support group meetings is FREE. A donation at the door would be appreciated.
