This Autism and Addiction webinar is an opportunity to explore the relationship between Autistic people, mental health and addiction.  Living in a world that is not very kind to Autistic people has many negative effects on our health, behaviour and mental well-being.

Recent research reveals that almost 50% of Autistic adults experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We have extremely high levels of anxiety, stress, and depression. These are often called “co-occurring” conditions but why are the levels of emotional and mental health conditions so high in the Autistic population? What is the relationship between all of this and addiction? Eoin and Stiof alongside Evaleen from AUsome Training will explore the relationship between living as an oppressed minority and addiction.
