Mental Health Supports

Individuals with autism may face unique challenges related to their mental health due to the core characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These challenges can vary from person to person but often include: communication barriers, social isolation, sensory sensitivities, bullying and victimization, transition and independence, stigma and misunderstanding, and co-occurring conditions, such as ADHD, anxiety disorders, and depression.
