Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when health extends beyond the body. 

This week’s episode is a recording of one of our Global Autism Community exclusive events! 

The topic of this roundtable discussion was Health and Wellness. It was hosted by community moderator Mary Johnston.

A 21-year-old Autistic Self-Advocate from New Hampshire, Mary hosts a blog called Autistic Rainbow 15 where she shares LGBTQ+ and disability-friendly tips, as well as information about inclusion and disability rights. A long-time member of our online Global Autism Community, Mary joined the moderator team last summer to help ensure our space remains safe and respectful. 

Participating in this event was Autistic Self-Advocate Michelle Vinokurov, and community members D’John Greer and Liz Castillo. 

In today’s conversation, they discuss:

  • Mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health

  • Self-care

  • How to reduce stress levels

  • Maintaining routines

  • Why sleep is important

  • Accepting an autism diagnosis

  • Changing habits for self-improvement

Round-table discussions like the one you’ll hear today are open exclusively for members of our online Global Autism Community. We select a different theme each month, and our moderators monitor posts daily to ensure that our online space remains safe and respectful.
