About American Tinnitus Association

The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) is a 501(c)(3) national, non-profit, self-help organization dedicated to helping people with tinnitus and their healthcare providers. Tinnitus is a condition characterized by sensation of sound for which there is no external source. Such perceived sounds are often described as a buzzing, ringing, whistling, or clicking sensation. The association’s activities include research for a cure and management of the condition; production and distribution of public awareness materials; educational programs for the professional and lay communities; establishment of, and guidance for, self-help groups and their leaders; promotion of community hearing-protection programs; and financial assistance to people who are unable to afford healthcare services for their tinnitus. Founded in 1971, the organization maintains a bibliographic service and publishes a variety of informational brochures and a “tri-annual journal with three supplemental electronic newsletters”.
