Autism and Mental Illness

I'm on this group for my 15 yr old son with high functioning asd. He developed symptoms of auditory hallucinations, increased anxiety, and manic/depressive episodes in November. He was in the hospital three times since December after having Lyme disease, which was treated with abx, and two of those times was in a psychiatric facility. I would like to know how many of you with asd here also have diagnoses of bipolar or schizophrenia? I want to know how common it is. Also, have any of you had Lyme and found that you had lingering mental health issues even after treatment? #ASD #ASDmentalhealth #Anxiety #Depression #Schizophrenia #BipolarDisorder #warriormom
