Virtual Craniofacial Support Groups

Ensuring that individuals impacted by craniofacial differences and family members across the country have a place to turn for support is critical to the work of myFace. 

Designed to provide guidance, counsel and community for those living with craniofacial conditions and their families, myFace support groups provide an environment where participants can feel safe, hopeful, and never alone. Support groups for adolescents, adults, and parents are a cornerstone of the help myFace offers to the craniofacial community. These support groups are offered virtually and meet regularly throughout the month.
