The European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS) was founded in Copenhagen in 2000 by Professor Mary Robertson and a group of colleagues.

ESSTS is dedicated to harmonizing European research on Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome (TS) and related disorders, offering a platform for global outreach and educational initiative.

A significant accomplishment of the Society has been the development of best practice guidelines for diagnosing and treating TS. Additionally, ESSTS has played a crucial role in securing research funding for pan-European collaborations, aiming to uncover the underlying causes of TS.

The annual ESSTS conference serves as a key gathering for participants from around the globe.

Furthermore, ESSTS has been involved in the inception of European Tourette’s Day, observed every June 7th, in collaboration with a European network of TS support and advocacy organizations.

TTAG values the partnership and expanding collaboration with ESSTS.
