Exciting New Research in Autism Launched Today

A new research study investigating mental health in people with autism is being launched today, 25th October 2017.

The study is a collaboration between leading investigators at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders at the University of Birmingham, Aston University, and leading UK autism research charity, Autistica. 

Mental health problems affect 79% of people with autism, and managing these difficulties is a top priority for people living with autism. However, these dififculties, particularly for those who also have an intellectual disability, have been largely overlooked due to lack of research and support.

Researchers aim to recruit 5,000 autistic people, their families and carers to the 'Discover' research network by the end of 2017. To find out more and get involved please visit:
