THE BRITISH TINNITUS ASSOCIATION promotes further understanding of tinnitus, permanent and incurable noises in the head, a condition suffered by a tenth of all adults and many children. The noise they hear can range from a hiss to something like a jet-engine or a road drill; it can cause insomnia, anxiety, depression, severe distress and feelings of total isolation. The association promotes counselling and other therapies to combat some of the worst consequences of the condition; it sponsors scientific and clinical research, self-help groups and publishes a quarterly journal, Quiet. An appeal for pounds 5m has been launched with the publication of the Tinnitus Charter 2000, which seeks better provision in the NHS and greater awareness among GPs and the public.
The British Tinnitus Association, Room 6, 14-16 West Bar Green, Sheffield S1 2DA, telephone 081- 317 8934.
