It's Tinnitus Week and on behalf of everyone who has tinnitus, we NEED your help. We've launched a petition pushing for the government to commit more funding to tinnitus research.
●New research by the BTA shows the massive mental health impact of tinnitus
○1 in 5 think about it every few minutes
○Affects social lives, hobbies, relationships, careers
○1 in 7 have had suicidal thoughts
●This research - and the huge impact it is having - highlights the need for more funding to find cures:
○8 in 10 patients unhappy with treatment options
○Yet it receives 40 times less funding than similar conditions like hearing loss, depression and anxiety
○We need more funding from the Government for research into tinnitus as it has been forgotten for too long
Please watch Claire's video and sign the petition at change.org/p/matthew-hancoc...
You can also help us reach more people by sharing the link and encouraging others to sign up too. Let's make a real difference this #TinnitusWeek.
