Founded in 2020, Tourette Italia ETS was born out of the need to address the difficulties commonly encountered by those with Tourette Syndrome and their families. Due to an insufficient and little widespread knowledge of the disorder in the medical and social spheres, to this day people living with Tourette are forced to face obstacles that are in many cases insurmountable, which inevitably end up compromising their quality of life and sociality. Tourette Italia serves the community and works to raise awareness and provide ongoing support to the patients and families involved, with concrete projects and activities.
