Abstract

This presentation explores the concepts of monotropism, flow states, and the double empathy problem in relation to autism. Alongside reporting on studies examining the mental health and wellbeing of autistic people, these themes set a backdrop for a discussion regarding autism and mental health. Too often autistic people face mental distress without appropriate support both clinically and in the wider community.
