Because Feelings Matter #8: We’re Autistic, Accept Us For Who We Are

Every mental health struggle has a story behind it. Autistic individuals have stories as well, that go beyond the label of their diagnosis. In conjunction with Autism Awareness Day in April, this episode of ‘Because Feelings Matter’ features the story of Sarah Ow, a young autistic adult and music teacher, and her mother Li-Ling. 

Because Feelings Matter’ is a series that brings you the stories of people and their mental health issues. These stories aim to normalise conversations about mental health, and to show that it’s okay to struggle emotionally and psychologically, but more importantly, to reach out for help. This series is produced in collaboration with Thrive Well.
