About Misophonia Association

Important Update

The Misophonia Association would like to update you on the Convention being planned for October 2020.  We have the convention dates and have contracted with the Embassy Suites Philadelphia Airport.  We’ve also begun to plan the programming and have contacted several potential speakers.  At the same time, we are carefully watching the COVID-19 situation.  As much as we want to bring this amazing community together to share, learn, and grow, health and safety are paramount.  We are actively considering all options for the October convention.  As we continue to monitor the situation closely, we’ll keep you updated. Thank you.

About Us

The Misophonia Association is a non-profit organization that was founded in October 2013 in Portland, Oregon after the first Misophonia Convention.

Goals and mission

Education, Advocacy, Research, Support–in order to assist those who suffer from the condition of misophonia, as well as their families. We stand together in our rejection of bias, prejudice, and exclusion. We value respect, encouragement, professionalism and courteous speech and behavior. We recognize effort, intentions and accomplishment. We applaud helpfulness, positivity, and collaboration. We have made tremendous progress in the past few years.


We are committed to our annual convention, where we present a platform for gathering current and potential researchers and clinicians, and  work directly with those who suffer from misophonia along with their families. We continue to press for legitimate peer-reviewed professional research, and are committed to long-term dedicated and professional activities.

Please join us in our steady and mindful journey towards unbiased knowledge, effective treatment, and a potential cure for misophonia.  The Misophonia Association is funded with volunteer effort and donated time and funds. With your continued kind donations and support of events, we have begun to offer small pilot study style grants. These starter grants are aimed at funding smaller worthy projects that add to the body of work available in the world of peer-reviewed journalism.
