Autistic people’s experiences with mental health services: An umbrella review

Published December 2023

Over twice as many autistic people than non-autistic people are diagnosed with a mental health condition, but few access mental health services, leading to unmet mental healthcare needs. Autism-tailored programs and pathways within services are needed. An umbrella review is best suited to informing such programs and pathways as it provides multi-faceted, rather than single-stranded, insight. This umbrella review is the first to synthesise and evaluate the literature relating to autistic people’s mental health service experiences.
