The most important reason to become a member of TTAG is to support our work worldwide to improve conditions for people with Tourettes Syndrome (TS) and their relatives.
The knowledge about TS and how the condition can affect the life of the person and their close ones is deficient all over the world. Ignorance, stigma and intolerance is a big challenge. The lack of knowledge is evident in all areas of life, from childhood to adulthood.
The availability of competent help and effective treatment varies, largely depending on where the person lives.Although there is some research regarding TS, the research is still characterized by small studies, which doesn’t involve patient and public engagement (PPI).
In many countries, there is still no support in the form of associations or advocacy groups for people with TS and their relatives/ close ones.
We believe in having a stronger voice working together.
The more members supporting us, the bigger and stronger we become!
