Understanding your autism diagnosis

A workshop for adults recently diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Condition (including Asperger's) who wish to explore autism on a personal level as well as a medical one.

Through a combination of theory, practical and creative activities and discussion we will explore the following:

  • What is autism and how does it actually affect me?
  • Coping with later diagnosis.
  • How and when to disclose to those around you.
  • What autism specific support is out there?

Mental Health and Wellbeing

The past year has been challenging for all and has highlighted the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing. AS mentoring would like to equip you with the tools necessary to manage your wellbeing and to help you cope with the ups and downs that life can throw at you.

In this workshop we will provide a supportive, confidential and safe space for you to explore your experiences. The workshop will be a safe autism friendly space facilitated by two autism facilitators.

We will cover :

  • Understanding mental health and the different ways that it can present
  • Ways to improve your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing
  • Tips in creating your own 'mental health & wellbeing toolkit'
  • ASC specific testimonies about the relationship between Autism, MH and wellbeing.
  • An introduction to self-regulation tools, anxiety coping strategies and wellness practices such as grounding techniques, mindfulness and yoga

Following the workshop, AS Mentoring will send you a mental health and wellbeing resource sheet to support you in maintaining your mental health and wellbeing levels in the future.
