There is significant unmet need for people with mental disorders. Over a 12 month period only 39% of people with a mental disorder had visited health services.(1)

The Autism Spectrum Disorders are a group of disorders with common deficits in three key areas - communication, social interaction and imaginative thought and play. The latest Statistics show that ASD occurs in 1 in every 110 children.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is the name given to describe the wide range of behaviours amongst the Autistic population. The word 'spectrum' reflects the fact that no two people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder behave the same.
