The pandemic has had a significant impact across everybody’s social lives this year, and so returning to normality might be something we’re not feeling very confident about!

We have seen a breadth of impacts on peoples’ mental health and social confidence. But did you know that social confidence in Autistic people and those with high levels of autistic traits, are at greater risk of low mood, and mental health issues? There can be barriers to their social participation and engagement with society which can impact on their wellbeing. Find out more in our Borrow A Researcher session, where there will be plenty opportunity to ask questions!
