A4 is currently developing an information package on improving health outcomes for Autistic Australians. In the meantime, see:
- Brief: Autism and Mental Health
- Brief & meeting with Health officials - autism is a distinct disability
In a recent report, the Disability Royal Commission found severe problems with how Australia's health system responds to people with cognitive disability (which includes autistic people). See https://disability.royalcommission.gov.au/news-and-media/media-releases/greater-training-needed-health-professionals-caring-people-cognitive-disability
Particular problems with mental health generally are discussed here.
A4 has ongoing discussions with Health officials scheduled for after the coming election. We also expect to engage with the incoming Health Minister.
