Top tinnitus resources you might have missed

By Judith Vonberg

The internet is awash with tinnitus tips and tricks, some more trustworthy than others. Whether you have tinnitus or you’re a clinician looking to support your tinnitus patients, it can be difficult to navigate.

We wanted to help. So we asked clinical experts and people with tinnitus to tell us what tools and resources they find useful. The result is the list below – a curated selection of websites, forums, videos, interactive tools, apps, and training options. It’s far from comprehensive, but designed instead to give you a jumping off point to learn more, find support, and move forward on your tinnitus journey.

Have a browse, share the list with others, and tell us what you think.

Information and support

Check out the websites of Tinnitus UK, the American Tinnitus Association, and Soundfair for information about tinnitus, online forums, and lists of support groups. And read this research on the benefits of tinnitus support groups. Spoiler: they help people share knowledge, feel connected, and become more resilient.
