Review

This book is more than just another resource tool for those of us living with an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). It is a guide book for all those bumps in the road that offer a variety of options and confuse us or catch us unawares. It takes our mental health threats and draws a map to aid navigation around or through these. Its clear and concise explanations plus practical application make it a must have for anyone living with and supporting ASC individuals. -- from the foreword by Wenn Lawson, PhD, CPsychol, lecturer, and author of Older Adults and Autism Spectrum Conditions

This guide lives up to my high expectations and the authors' wisdom continues to guide my practice and challenge what I understand about autism. In my opinion, this is an essential resource for not only the person affected but also the people in their lives. -- from the foreword by Kirsty Dempster-Rivett, MSocSci PGDip Psych (Clin.)

This book provides a treasure trove of information for people on the autism spectrum who face a range of mental health issues. It is accessible in terms of ease of reading, provides useful information regarding interventions, strategies, peer mentoring and self-management. It is an important addition to the field and provides a positive focus on this critical topic. -- Professor Sylvia Rodger AM, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, The University of Queensland

For individuals with autism and mental health conditions, this self-help book empowers the reader with the information necessary to improve their lives. This book also needs to be read by neurotypicals for the exceptional insight into the autistic mind. I especially liked the thorough information regarding the importance of pets as therapy. This is a MUST READ! -- Anita Lesko, BSN, RN, MS, CRNA, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Autism Advocate, Author, Speaker, Diagnosed with Asperger's at age 50

Finally, a much needed contribution to the literature on autism and mental health. Incredibly readable, this is a self-help book for adults across the spectrum to understand, manage and improve their mental health. A practical resource, dense with information and strategies, it covers many aspects of mental health, all of which are woven into the rich tapestry of the author's personal experience. The stories shared give this book another dimension by providing valuable insights into supporting those with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), making it an essential companion for families, friends and mental health professionals. -- Gillian Chappé de Léonval,Family Support Advisor, Autism Asperger ACT
