We encourage you to utilize ATA resources, which are grounded in the latest science and best practices for managing tinnitus. Through membership, you will automatically receive their flagship publication, Tinnitus Today magazine, which has won numerous awards for quality reporting and representation of issues relevant to the tinnitus community.
The ATA also funds tinnitus research through its Innovative Grants Program, which is designed to enable researchers to generate original date that be used in applying for larger grants from much bigger funding institutions, including the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense.
Please note that neither the ATA nor the Madison Tinnitus Support Group offer medical guidance, so it is crucial to work with a qualified healthcare professional who can best assess your healthcare needs. If you need assistance finding qualified healthcare professionals, see the ATA’s list of professional providers.
If you need immediate guidance, please call the ATA’s Tinnitus Advisors Program (800-634-8978, ext. 3), which offers free 15-minute consultations intended to help you devise a self-help plan based on best practices and evidenced based management tools.
The Madison Tinnitus Support Group is proud to be aligned with the American Tinnitus Association (ATA), the nation’s only non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the tinnitus community, which includes people living with tinnitus, tinnitus healthcare specialists, and researchers committed to finding cures and better treatments. While the Madison Tinnitus Support Group operates independently from the ATA since 2018, we hope you find our organization meets the needs of support, education, camaraderie and compassion. We can ask questions and offer ideas and suggestion at our meetings. We get it and we are not alone.
To ensure that every meeting of the Madison Tinnitus Support Group is inclusive, respectful, and education, please note the following guidelines: The material discussed at the group is intended to be used as general information and should not replace the advice of a physician, audiologist, or medical clinician. This is not the time to utilize the group as a personal counselor. It is not the time to tell your entire tinnitus story. We exist to talk about coping mechanisms and stress reduction techniques, encourage each other and enjoy a camaraderie. Do some research for yourself, know what is happening to you.
If you are thinking about harming yourself, call 988 immediately.
