If you are an adult just learning about the possibility of autism in yourself, read the blog and get in touch for a chat. Autistic adults are at 8 times a higher risk of suicide than the general population, and within this group women are at greater risk than men. Social isolation is a huge factor in this, and we know that autistic people tend not to seek out conventional meet-ups. We're looking to provide an alternative and we'd like to co-produce that with others in the same boat.
