Mental Health Autism Annual Stakeholder Event, Coventry University, 27th January 2017

Mental Health Autism (MHAutism) invite you to join them at the first annual stakeholder workshop of the MHAutism project, on Friday 27th January 2017, 12.30-4.30pm, at Coventry University.

MHAutism is a research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. Their 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 free 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.

The MHAutism Team look forward to welcoming you to Coventry University. To facilitate planning of the event, please register your attendence by 2nd December 2016, and contact them with any questions:
