I’m Tiernan, and I’m autistic. I have had recurring mental health issues and it’s been difficult getting the care and services I need. It has stretched my family to their limits. I have been frustrated at the lack of information and understanding. But you can help change this.

And change is badly needed. Research shows that 8 out of 10 autistic adults experience a mental health problem*. Lives which are made much harder than they need to be. The National Autistic Society’s Helpline was invaluable to me and my family in guiding us through. They were there for me when others weren’t. But it can only exist with the help of people like you.

A gift today will help transform lives and change attitudes and help build a society that works for autistic people.

Thank you,

Tiernan
