Home » Become a Mental Health Research Champion

We want to raise awareness of mental health problems and suicide risk in autism. To do this, we need help from autistic people, and family members who support a person with autism – tell us your stories through a written blog post, poetry, art or sculpture. We want to know what needs to change with regard to supporting adults with autism who experience mental health problems, self-injury and thoughts of ending life.

“No one ever asked me before about what kind of support I need” (Autistic Adult)
