Misophonia International started in 2015 as an advocacy project, information site, and a resource to help bridge the gap between researchers, advocates, and sufferers (or concerned relatives). Misophonia International does not solicit donations personally, we are an advocacy resource that works closely with researchers, and supports the work of ethical and outstanding researchers and scientists. All donations go directly to the research programs at reputable universities. It is our goal to provide an accurate reflection of current scientific ideas, as well as sufferer and family perspectives. We accept submissions from both scientists and sufferers in an attempt to facilitate a conversation around our disorder. It is our goal to disseminate information and help persons identify Misophonia. We provide coping resources and information documents for schools, parents, and medical professionals. Misophonia International works alongside the brilliant researchers of The International Misophonia Research Network, and provides resources such as books, PDFs, and articles that reflect the current scientific basis of the disorder. We do note that information is rapidly changing, and that these ideas are subject to editing as the science moves forward. It is our hope that Misophonia sufferers, advocates, professionals, doctors and researchers can work together in a multidisciplinary approach to wellness and treatment.
Misophonia International includes many writers that submit on a volunteer basis. We are forever thankful to these individuals and their commitment to the cause.
Misophonia International was developed by two sufferers of Misophonia that have been trying to advocate for: research, awareness, and coping with Misophonia. Jennifer Brout (PsyD) has been advocating for misophonia for the better part of two decades, under the name of SPD-SOR. Shaylynn Hayes, Editor-In-Chief, is a designer and student out of Canada, that works toward advocacy. She is the author of Full of Sound and Fury: Suffering With Misophonia. Misophonia International works in partnership with the IMRN. Run by volunteers, all sales are used to off-set the cost of design work, site maintenance, hosting, and other pricey factors of e-commerce.
