Suicidality in Autism

SIG Leader: Sarah Cassidy SIG Co-Leader: Ashley Robertson Suicidality in autism research is a rapidly growing area of crucial importance to autistic peoples quality of life. Our first two SIGs identified future research priorities and forged new international links. This facilitated the first international suicide in autism summit funded by Autistica in association with the James Lind Alliance; a call to action published in the Lancet Psychiatry; a significant increase in INSAR abstract submissions; a panel submission to INSAR 2018; and an application for a special issue. Our final SIG will discuss how we can make the priority research questions we have identified a reality.
