Improve health for those on the autism spectrum

Autistic people* experience a major health gap and many barriers to effective healthcare. The health inequalities experienced by autistic people are stark and include high rates of mental health concerns, multiple and often complex health issues, premature deaths, and many barriers to accessing appropriate health care.

 

Our work at 3DN has been critical to developing a better understanding of the health and wellbeing of autistic adults. Our work has been important in exposing this health gap in Australia, and we are working very hard to ensure the highest attainable standard of health and wellbeing for autistic people. We ask you to consider being an important part of our work by giving your donation, which will support projects of direct benefit to autistic people.

 

Together, we can improve health care and health outcomes for autistic people and their supporters.

 

*Note our use of the term “Autistic people” reflects the preferences of the majority of those in the autistic community; however we do acknowledge that language preferences may vary.
