Petition: Autism is not a mental disorder, amend the Mental Health Act

Autism is not a mental health problem so why is it currently defined as a ‘mental disorder’ under the Mental Health Act?

This puts autistic people at greater risk of being sectioned instead of receiving the help and support they need. Sign the NAS open letter to the Government and ask them to change the definition, change the destination.
