Tinnitus Awareness Week – Do not ‘suffer in silence’ says Deafness Research UK
PRESS Release of the Year: Vivienne Michael, Chief Executive Deafness Research UK says:
As we enter Tinnitus Awareness Week, I should like to urge any of your readers who suffer from this distressing condition not to suffer in silence and remind them that help is available.
It’s uphill from there:
Recent high profile reports of suicides by tinnitus sufferers show just how serious tinnitus can be but Deafness Research UK wants to assure people they are not alone, we are here offer help and support.
The charity continues to fund research into better treatments, with the ultimate aim of a cure. Our free information leaflets offer immediate help to sufferers and our national helpline provides additional support for those who need it. We understand that the noises in the ears and head that define tinnitus can seem intolerable but we urge people to get in touch. In many cases we can help.
Our new leaflet ‘Managing Tinnitus’ is free and available directly from our website at deafnessresearch.org.uk, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling our freephone helpline on 0808 808 2222.
Yours faithfully Vivienne Michael, Chief Executive Deafness Research UK
