    Hi @naomimandeena1, I imagine this has been very stressful. Has your son received a diagnosis within the last 12 months?

    If so, you could access our Navigate service at Scope. 
    Navigate is a 6-week programme that puts you in touch with a personal adviser, who will help you to talk about your feelings and concerns.

    The service will help you with:
    • organising your thoughts and feelings
    • practical advice and suggestions
    • coping strategies and insights
    • taking positive actions and helping you with emotional wellbeing
