New research on mental health of autistic young people

A new report from the Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE) and Ambitious About Autism found that 80% of the young people in their sample experienced mental health problems.  Furthermore, the young people reported lack of services and long delays to access the services that are available. They added that often staff had no understanding of autism and how to adapt their services to meet their needs.  How can this be improved?
