Autism CRC alongside the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and supported by Positive Partnerships have culminated three years of research to launch a new website which helps teenagers on the autism spectrum with depression and anxiety.

Statistics indicate one in two young Australians on the autism spectrum experience anxiety and one in three experience depression, rates up to twice as high as those for non-autistic young Australians

The Autism Teen Wellbeing website provides resources and strategies to help build protective factors against depression and anxiety for those vulnerable young people by cultivating a sense of belonging and the ability to regulate emotions in the face of stress.
