Autism and suicidality

The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism features a discussion with Sarah Cassidy, co-chair of an INSAR special interest group on autism and suicidality. Sarah explains recent research they’ve done exploring correlations between a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome and feelings of suicidality. They discuss the need for more research exploring why suicidality develops in some autistic people, what the protective factors are and what support and interventions can help prevent suicidality.
