Hey :)

It's debated - some people say 'autism' is more a developmental issue rather than a mental illness, others say that autism is another form of neurodivergence so they can considered together. A lot of language seems to echo the first one though - i.e. autism and mental illness. It's a grey area x

Much love <3
