Whilst Autism is not a mental health condition, very high numbers of autistic people experience poor mental health across the lifespan with up to 76% reaching out for mental health services. Only 14% of autistic adults and 11% of families feel that there are enough mental health services in their area to meet their needs.
Autistic people have said mental health training which increases understanding of autism and improves responses are the things that can make the biggest difference, alongside making adjustments to the way in which services are provided.
We are delighted to launch two new certified autism courses online for 2023. Please click on the course headings below for more information.
