Mental and Physical Health

Streissguth from the University of Washington found after researching 415 people with FAS that 96% of people with this condition will have a mental health condition.

Because of the typical lack of ability to link cause and consequence combined with a high pain threshold, people with FASD will often have physical health issues as well if they do not live with family or friends. Living with family or friends may provide the individual with FASD with support to recognise when its necessary to visit a health professional, take medication or keep on top of hygiene and nutrition.
