ASERT does not offer crisis services through our Resource Center. If you or someone you love is experiencing mental health distress or thoughts of suicide please call or text 988 for support.
Trainings available on LANTERN are collections of short resources designed for the busy lives of self-advocates, support persons, professionals, clinicians and caregivers. We also recognize the need for overall awareness and have developed trainings specifically for community members.
LANTERN tracks user accomplishments, provides proof of completion, allows learners to earn badges and points.
You must register for a PAAutism account to access these resources.
