Tinnitus and Isolation

Tinnitus Week 2019 is already only just around the corner, taking place from 4-10 February, and the main focus will be isolation.

We want to engage with people who have tinnitus in order to raise awareness of the impact the condition can have on feelings of isolation. We’ll be reaching out to the media to try and get support during the week, and calling on BTA members to get involved and help us raise awareness.

We’ll be exploring the isolation theme, looking at a range of issues around how tinnitus can make someone feel isolated, and what can be done to help with those feelings.

Although tinnitus is a very common condition, we know that those who have it can also feel very alone with it. So here at the BTA, we hope to point people in the direction of relevant support and resources that can help.

We’re delighted that for the second year running, the international tinnitus community will be getting involved so that we can reach a bigger audience than ever, raising awareness of how tinnitus can impact someone experiencing the condition. 

More details will appear here in the coming weeks and months, so please do keep in touch.

You can follow us on Twitter at @BritishTinnitus and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BritishTinnitusAssociation. The hashtag for the campaign will again be #TinnitusWeek so if you are on social, please do make sure you use this in your posts in the run up, and throughout Tinnitus Week.

As always we’re hoping to build as much momentum in the run up to and throughout the week, so please keep an eye out for the ways you can support the campaign.

If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please contact Emily at the BTA office, on [email protected] or call 0114 250 9933.
