AutismBC is pleased to collaborate with Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders (POPARD) to present a series of workshops in 2021, aiming to provide resources for families to help their kids (and parents) learn at school, at home, and in the community.

Having a diagnosis of ASD increases the likelihood of having mental health symptoms or a diagnosed disorder. This session will:

  • Provide a brief overview of the most common mental health disorders among the ASD population.
  • Discuss how COVID-19 is impacting mental health
  • Help parents/caregivers identify when to seek mental health support.
  • Provide a detailed review of how and where to access mental health support from primary care to tertiary care services.
