Being a Autism and Mental Health Advocate has always been a big part of my world. Autistic people can enjoy the same rights, quality of life as any neurotypical person, with proper support and resources readily available. Mental Health is extremely important for those living with autism and their parents/caregivers to ensure their emotional, psychological and social well-being. Being healthy emotionally can promote productivity and effectiveness especially for caregivers who feel helpless when caring for a child who has many special needs.

My advocacy will always be the good fight. Sending virtual hugs to all, you aren’t alone.
