Autism is a neurological condition not a mental health condition however alot of people with autism also have mental health conditions. It is important that if you feel you present with Autism you get formally diagnosed through the correct process, which starts off as a referal from your GP.

It is important to understand that getting a high score on an online questionnaire does NOT mean you have autism however it may give you an indication that you present with that diagnosis.

There are more tests that are done which include talking to those you are or feel close too and monitoring you over a period of time.

PLEASE DO NOT CLAIM YOU HAVE AUTISM IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A FORMAL DIAGNOSIS. Some typical trates of autism also appear in personality disorder diagnosises so please get formally diagnosed.
