Open Letter About Suicide Prevention in Autistic People – Autism Centre of Excellence at Cambridge

The number of autistic people dying by suicide year after year is a national scandal.

Today, following the inquest of Caitlyn Scott-Lee, a 16-year-old autistic girl who chose to end her own life, we have written an open letter to the Government to highlight the increased risk of suicide that autistic people face.

Our letter, signed by fellow campaigners, academic researchers, bereaved parents, our ambassadors, The National Autistic Society, PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide, Tellmi, Samaritans and YoungMinds to call for urgent action to tackle the issue.
