StatementFrom Mental Health Commission of Canada

OTTAWA, March 29, 2018

/CNW/ - On April 2, World Autism Awareness Day shines a spotlight on the need to support people living with autism, and their families.

As our understanding grows around the co-occurring nature of mental health

problems and illnesses - and how this affects people living with autism - it's more important than ever to advocate for early intervention and treatment. 

The Mental Health Commission of Canada is working cooperatively with all levels of government to help Canadians achieve mental health and wellness across the lifespan. There is no doubt that smart spending in crucial areas, like family-centred community care, boosting access to services and bringing mental health awareness into schools, will generate real benefits across society. 

Learn more about how autism advocacy groups are striving to make inroads to bring better services and supports into communities like yours. We invite you to visit the Autism Canada website and consider wearing your T-shirt inside out for their Inside Out for Autism campaign, which launches April 2 on World Autism Awareness Day.
