Mental Health and ASD Family Engagement Committee
Posted: September 7, 2016 in The Ability Hub News
Does your child with ASD also experience mental health problems? Anxiety, depression, and attention deficient disorder are extremely common in individuals with ASD, yet access to effective treatment and support for these issues can be difficult.
We would like to hear more about what is working well in the current mental health system and what gaps or barriers still exist. The Sinneave Family Foundation is creating a Family Engagement Committee on Mental Health and ASD to hear directly from individuals and family members/caregivers. Meetings will be held once a month starting in September (time and day to be determined).
If you are interested in sharing your experiences and providing input to this group, please contact Dr. Katelyn Lowe at email@example.com or call 403.210.5000
