Free Event for Patients and Families // Caregiver Lunch and Unlearn: Autistic Adults & Mental Health: Autism and Psychiatry

About the event:

Caregiver Lunch and Unlearn: Autistic Adults and Mental Health

Organized, developed & facilitated by caregivers

Join us for the 3rd of 6 sessions of interactive unlearning of topics relevant to caregivers. Unlearning is not about teaching people that what they know is wrong, rather we aim to provide an empowering space to examine what we think we know & consider different perspectives.

UNLEARNING: Autism and Psychiatry

Alongside Dr. Amanda Sawyer, child and adolescent psychiatrist, caregivers will explore:

  • Medication use & Autism: why & what are we medicating?
  • Psychiatric diagnosis vs being Autistic in neurotypical world
  • Clinician limitations: It takes a village
