Visit the Ontario Working Group on Mental Health and Adults with ASD siteNew Ontario working group to address mental health and autism in adults

"While more than 93,000 adults in Ontario are affected by the challenges of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), many go undiagnosed for far too long. Without appropriate diagnostic and mental health services, many of these adults suffer in isolation. To address this emerging issue, care providers from across Ontario have joined together to create the Ontario Working Group on Mental Health and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder." Read the news release.

The group, which includes Autism Ontario, CAMH and many more, is hosting a one day conference that will be of interest to psychiatrists, family doctors and mental health clinicians, and will run adjacent to Geneva Centre for Autism’s International Symposium, Autism 2014.
