Part 1 - Symposium on Good Mental Health - Autistic Girls and Women
Published at : 04 Jan 2021
We’ve heard how important it is to finding a tribe that makes you feel connected, understood and valued. We’ve heard how much that make can make a profound difference to your sense of
wellbeing. We’ve heard how critical it is to promote a strong sense of self-acceptance, to celebrate strengths and invest in interests. We’ve heard how key it is to know triggers and have de escalation strategies.
We’ve heard. We’ve listened. We’ve learned. And What better way to learn what the next generation of ladybugs may need, or what might work for them, than to hear directly from autistic women and non binary people who have taken these steps before. And whilst no experience is the same, and everyone is different, I hope you find comfort in knowing that we now have a place where we can collaborate, share and learn together. A place where we can focus on self acceptance, self-management and self belief.
Thanks to the Victorian Government and Yellow Ladybugs and all speakers.
