Mental Health in Autism (MHAutism) is a research project exploring the unique challenges adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) face in relation to mental health problems, self-injury, and thoughts about ending life. We want to understand why adults with ASC experience these difficulties so we can lobby for better support to improve quality of life for adults with ASC.


The MHAutism team have developed some resources with Network Autism, to raise awareness of mental health in autism. You can access this information and find out more by following the link below:
