Hope Services Leads the Way in Research to Better Understand Autism

A follow-up to the 2012 report on autism:

In September 2015, Hope’s Mental Health Center presented its updated report to the 10th Congress of the European Society on Mental Health in Intellectual Disability in Firenze, Italy.

The presentation was well-received, and Hope will move forward with new opportunities to collaborate and publicize our findings. Hope’s Mental Health Center looks forward to working with the moderator of our presentation in Firenze, Elspeth Bradley, Ph.D., MD, who was formerly at King’s College, London, and is now at the University of Toronto, Department of Psychiatry. Together, we will create an improved version of our mental health assessment tool for individuals with autism.


In 2012 Hope’s Mental Health Services completed an innovative report on autism, led by Susan Detrick, Ph.D., which focused on effective ways to identify, assess, and treat psychiatric illnesses that impact individuals who also have autism. Clients who were involved in the project have been stabilized or have experienced improvements in their integration in social settings. You can read the original report here.
