Autism NI - Mental Health & Autism Project

The Mental Health and Autism Project provides one to one support to autistic young people aged 11-18 years within the Belfast Trust. We receive requests for support from the Child and Adolescents Autism Service in the Belfast Trust. Our Mental Health and Autism Project offers early support that aims to remove barriers within home, school and community environments thus supporting achievement, enjoyment and full participation. Each participant will receive 8–12 weeks of tailored bespoke early intervention, on issues they have identified with a view to increasing confidence, self-esteem and emotional well-being.  

80% of autistic participants rated the service as ‘excellent’, many highlighted that with support they had achieved positive change in areas identified by them at the start of the engagement.
