Please consider making a tax-deductible gift in support of our mission of providing vital education and hope to individuals and families whose lives are affected by autism spectrum disorders, mental illness, and chemical dependency.


Your Support Changes Lives
The barriers and challenges to seeking and receiving care are great, and much of it is steeped in stigma and taboo about mental illnesses, chemical dependency, and autism.

Many are afraid to ask for help or do not know where to find it. In a time of profound change in healthcare systems with vital programs being scaled back in many communities, our publications fill a critical void by providing a key source of science-based information, education, advocacy and resources from the local, state and national perspective.

Impact in 2018
This year, tens of thousands of print copies of Behavioral Health News and Autism Spectrum News were delivered to individuals and families in need and to the service providers who care for them. In addition, we posted each quarterly issue of both publications in their entirety for free reading on our websites.

With our print and online formats, we are now reaching over 250,000 annual readers made up of consumers, families, treatment professionals, service providers, educators, and key decision makers in the Northeast and throughout the country. Your support has allowed us to print over 125 informative and educational articles in 2018. This year’s topics have included:

Autism Spectrum News 
The Latest Advances in Autism Science
Improving Health and Wellness for Individuals with ASD
Supporting Adolescents with Autism
Autism and Sexuality

Behavioral Health News
Addressing the Nation’s Opioid Epidemic
The Vital Role of Housing in the Recovery Process
Meeting the Needs of Our Vulnerable Populations
System Reform: Progress Report
