FTFP 8 – Will The Real Adult Autism Doctor Please Stand Up?

Fixing The Fixerpunk covers ideas about changing yourself and society from my own self-development process.
Insights from this episode:

– The Struggle to Find Adult Autism Doctors and Therapists

– You have to talk about systemic issues to work on personal development effectively!
– Resources matter and drive success in personal development, whether that is mental health, physical health, fitness, etc.
– When the resources needed for a specific community are not accessible, then you have a problem
– Capitalism often keeps the resources from those who most need it, when those who need it less can get it easier
– Why funders must listen to the communities their programs serve before investing in resources
– The need for truly specialized, accessible mental health care
– Why more mental health treatment, especially from the existing publicly funded systems or Medicaid providers, is NOT the answer for homelessness, and may not even help their specific mental health issues
– Publicly run and managed care systems use inexperienced mental health providers. You don’t hand someone with severe physical trauma to a physician assistant, you shouldn’t do the same with mental health.
– Binge eating with Autism, ADHD, and post-concussion syndrome
– Difficulty sticking to a diet with Autism and impulse control issues
– Progress in self-improvement and fitness takes longer for those with lower socioeconomic status and mental health issues.
