For mental health support, which we all need at times, the first place to go to is your GP - or Derriford A& E in a crisis, and check our 'Local Links' page.
We are a NAS branch run solely by volunteers. Over the past 10 years we have been running a peer support group for adults with Aspergers Syndrome.
We also act as a source of information on local events and services.
We are currently running 2 support groups which have free monthly meetings:
1) Peer Support For Adults With Aspergers Syndrome
2) Autism Plymouth Parent Support Group
They both have Facebook pages, or click on the support group tab at the top of this page to find out more.
We are always in need of Committee members and fund-raisers, so if you are interested in getting involved then please email us for further details -
