The Facial Pain Association (FPA) formerly known as the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association (TNA), is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) volunteer organization founded in 1990. The mission of the FPA is to serve those with neuropathic facial pain, including trigeminal neuralgia, through support, education, and advocacy. The organization now assists thousands of others around the world. The FPA has emerged as the world’s leading resource for information and health care guidance for all people suffering from neuropathic facial pain. Patients and healthcare professionals benefit from its programs of personal support and education.

Guiding the association is a volunteer governing board and a Medical Advisory Board of highly-skilled experts in neurosurgery, neuroscience, general medicine, and dentistry.
