Today marks the start of World Autism Awareness Month and our Anxiety Breakthroughs campaign which focuses on anxiety. Throughout April we will share the latest evidence on autism and anxiety and raise funds for critical anxiety breakthroughs to transform autistic people's lives.

Watch our Anxiety explained film to learn more about anxiety breakthroughs in autism.

This animation was created with members of the Autistica Insight Group and academics at City University.

Donate a breakthrough

Make a donation this month so we can fund anxiety breakthroughs that will truly transform autistic lives. We’re working with researchers across the UK, Government and the NHS to develop personalised anxiety treatments and services that work for every autistic person. However, we cannot carry out this work without your support. Please add a breakthrough donation to our fundraising wall, so we can ensure autistic people no longer need to live their lives with crippling anxiety.
