I am running as a superhero to raise funds for the work of The Children's Hospital at Westmead Autism Team for the 5h year. But what superhero will represent me in 2017??The Westmead Autism Team is a small group of mental health professionals who have created an evidenced-based treatment for school aged children with Autism, both high functioning and those with intellectual disability. Our intervention is called emotions based social skills training and the manuals backed by on-line training will be launched by the Australian Council of Educational Research in the next 3 months. This is a critical step along a 13 year road of development and now we need to make this effective intervention as widely available as possible and reach as many children with Autism in the English Speaking World as possible. We have aims to make it available in other languages, but also to develop a new module for adolescents with an intellectual disability. This is my main charitable fund raising activity. Supporting my run will help children with Autism and in making effective treatment available for all children with Autism through dissemination of our intervention and through further research.
The City2Surf is the largest fun run in the world. The Sydney Children's Hospital is the largest charity in the run, in 2016 Psychological Medicine was the largest fund raising group in the hospital. Mental Welbeing is the most important health agenda in our society, and the mental health of children and children with disability is the most needy group in our society.
