Description

Description

This project will study innovative approaches to expand treatment and care research to address mental health problems in Canadians with autism across the lifespan. They will examine why people with ASD are prone to develop mental health problems, evaluate novel treatment strategies to help youth and young adults with ASD deal with these issues, as well as other stressful events like bullying, and find ways to improve access to care for all. To achieve these goals, they will work with people with autism, families, services providers, and government to share cutting edge research that informs mental health care policy and practice across the country. This collaborative research will also have a lasting impact by fostering the next generation of Canadian autism researchers and clinicians. - See more at: http://science.grants.autismspeaks.org/search/grants/cihr-chair-autism-spectrum-disorders-treatment-and-care-research#sthash.dPP1c2Ka.dpuf
