Autism affects approximately 1% of people in the UK. Amongst patients accessing mental health services this prevalence rises to about 4%. Autism is associated with a wide range of physical health, mental health, and social care issues, so it is essential that all health and social care practitioners have a good working knowledge of autism. This course will provide you with a refresher about autism basics, a timely update on the latest developments in autism, and hints and tips for working with autistic service users.
Autistic people make up at least 1 in 100 people in the UK. Autism is lifelong so autistic people will present to services at all ages. About a third of autistic people will also have learning disability, and well over half will have co-occurring mental health problems. It’s therefore essential that all psychiatrists in all specialties have a good working knowledge of autism

The NICE guidelines of 2007 are in the process of being revised. Research is leading to advancements in our understanding of the mechanisms which underlay the symptoms of CFS/ME and may also give clues to the causes of fatigue in other conditions
It is well known that people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia have poorer physical health outcomes than the general population. Antipsychotics have important effects on some of these parameters such as weight, blood glucose and lipids.
