This course looks at the fact that Autism is not a mental health problem, but autistic people can have good and bad mental health like anyone else. We understand that a comorbidity is not uncommon as people living in the spectrum seek to navigate the world.
This course has been designed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health and autism. It will provide carers and staff with a clear understanding of the different types of mental illness and their impact on people and other conditions. For participants it will also increase confidence and knowledge to facilitate much more effective and holistic support to those in need of advice and assistance.
The course aims to demystify what can be considered a complex process and provide staff with the confidence to manage issues surrounding mental health, mental health legislation and issues surrounding capacity.
