Mental Health Autism Annual Stakeholder Event
Friday 27 January 2017
Our research has shown that up to 66% of adults with autism contemplate suicide, but there is little research into why this is the case, and how this can be prevented. The MHAutism project will develop the first tools to enable clinicians and service providers to effectively assess depression and suicide risk in adults with autism, develop our understanding of the warning signs for suicide, and what support could reduce risk of suicide in adults diagnosed with autism.
This event will bring together members of the autism community, charities, clinicians, policy makers and service providers, to discuss how the findings from our research could be implemented in practice. Refreshments and free parking will be available.
