NAS: Autistic people and inpatient mental health hospitals

Autism is not a mental health condition, but many autistic people develop separate mental health problems. Often this can stem from a lack of appropriate support, which means that autistic people can develop more significant needs.

The NAS have developed information for families on what to do if their autistic family member is at risk or has been admitted to or discharged from a mental health hospital.
