The Hot Stove Project

The Hot Stove Project

The Hot Stove Project aims to integrate individuals who are presently marginalized due to mental health issues.

We believe such integration can be achieved through the exchange of ideas between groups of people with differing perspectives on mental health.

Whether you are an employer, mental health provider, educator, and/or a person with lived experience, we hope that you will contribute to the understanding of what it means to live with mental disorders and how those who think, feel, and behave differently are not only too often marginalized, but isolate themselves as a consequence of fear and misunderstanding.

Our Project is an open invitation to professional societies and interdisciplinary conferences whose participants represent varying perspectives on medication, forced hospitalization, HIPAA laws, and much more to continue dialogue across such mental health divides.

Autism Society

Autism Society

Since 1965, the Autism Society has been a leader in serving people with autism, their families and professionals. We provide the most comprehensive Information and Referral service via our toll-free number, 1-800-3AUTISM, and the largest online referral database, AutismSource.
The Autism Society is the home of the Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon, one of the most recognizable cause-related symbols, and founded National Autism Awareness Month, which helps focus attention on autism in April of every year. The Autism Society’s 107 affiliates nationwide are incubators for local programs such as Safe and Sound, camps, respite care and social skills events.
The Autism Society supports research that will help families living with autism. Today, 67 individuals will be diagnosed with autism, and their families have no clear path for treating the symptoms of this medical condition. For this reason, the Autism Society has launched research initiatives to look into early diagnosis and early intervention, the environmental triggers of autism, environmental factors that exacerbate health conditions, and, most importantly, a comprehensive, coordinated treatment-guided research initiative.
For over 40 years, the Autism Society has hosted the largest conference on autism spectrum disorders each July.
