What are tinnitus support groups?

There is a network of independent tinnitus support groups around the country supported by the BTA. All support groups are different, but generally the benefits of joining one are:

  • Development of new coping skills
  • Learning new, practical ways of dealing with problems
  • Learning to relax and managing stress
  • Feeling more in control and an increase in confidence
  • Gaining inspiration and support from others
