“Understanding autism and the culture of autistic people,
so autistic people do not have to mask / camouflage their autism,
is suicide prevention.”
~ Lisa Morgan, 2021

Lisa is by far one of the best educators, trainers, and speakers I've seen in my 15+ years of work in the autism and mental health field. She has a remarkable ability to translate complex information into concrete, practical strategies for mental health professionals. You will leave one of Lisa's trainings with more tools and more confidence to support autistic people in crisis. Her dedication to applying her lived experience to improve crisis support services for autistic people is inspiring. I highly recommend that anyone wanting to support autistic people seek out the opportunity to learn directly from Lisa.
~ Brenna Maddox Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UNC Chapel Hill
I've had the privilege of working with Lisa in several capacities over the past two or so years, including as collaborators on a large clinical trial and as members of the American Association of Suicidology Autism and Suicide committee, which she co-leads. Lisa's approach to training and teaching is engaging, thoughtful, and steeped in her deep knowledge of effective teaching pedagogy. In addition to being an excellent teacher and coach, Lisa is a true change maker. For example, Lisa spearheaded efforts to address a lack of best practices for recognizing and supporting autistic people at risk for suicide by creating invaluable crisis supports toolkits for the autism community. Lisa puts in the hard work that is necessary for impactful, long-term change, both in terms of her individual clients and the larger autism community.
~ Shari Jager-Hyman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine
Lisa is an amazing educator. I think that it’s really important that we learn from people who share the identities that we are supporting and I’m really thankful for her insight.
This was such great training with so much to learn. Even though I work with families that have children with autism almost all the time on my job, I felt that the firsthand information offered in this training was extremely helpful in understanding how individuals with ASD react to different situations. I hope this training is offered to all people in social services.
Excellent training; speaker shared her own experiences with autism; gave me some concrete tools I can use on my job.
This training has been a necessary training for us in crisis (services). Thank you!
