Different minds. One Scotland. A national campaign on autism.
Different minds. One Scotland. is the first national campaign on autism and was created in response to The Scottish Government Consultation on The Scottish Strategy for Autism, which highlighted the stigma and discrimination that autistic people face.
In October 2020, the Scottish Government launched the campaign, which aims to deliver a clearer understanding of autism and dispel the myths surrounding it, leading to greater acceptance and increased understanding of autism, both what it is and what it is not.
