Autism Awareness Month 2023
In celebration of Autism Awareness Month, the Office of Autism Research Coordination (OARC)/National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) honors the contribution of people on the autism spectrum and the autism community to our nation and the world. We join the United Nations and the U.S. government in recognizing the needs of people on the autism spectrum and their families. Our office recognizes the need for supporting, understanding, accepting, including, and empowering of people on the autism spectrum. Throughout the month of April, we will be updating this page with the latest news and events.
