As per @StopTXSuicides‘ request:
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
ASAN’s online resource library section covers a range of subjects.
Pp.15-17 in their .pdf titled Autism and Safety Toolkit: Safety Tips for Self-Advocates has a section specifically written about suicide. It contains information and suggestions regarding planning for crisis, where and how to seek support, and acknowledges that autistics can be at risk in certain situations or may not be helped by those who do not have appropriate training.
Crisis Supports for the Autism Community
American Association of Suicidology and Common Ground developed a Crisis Toolkit to help give hotline workers some guidance in assisting those who may be autistic.
Autistic Women & Non-Binary Network
AWN actively collaborates with several disability, gender, justice, research, and related progressive causes and/or organizations. Additionally, our team works to advocate for our community and educate the public via presentations, workshops, trainings, articles, and statements.
