Nura, from Horfield, said that some health conditions, especially mental ones, are not recognised by much of the community.
She said: "There is no word in Somali for autism, and parents in migrant communities really struggle when they get the diagnosis. Nura, 34, is the founder of Autism Independence, a group based at Silai Centre which runs courses within the Somali community and works with other societies to help dispel the stigma about mental health. It is currently working directly with around 30 families. Nura said: "The Somali community is a very segregated from the rest of Bristol. Nura said: "For these women, their journey has been phenomenal. NURA is running a research pilot together with the University of Bristol, looking at why there is a higher prevalence of autism in children of migrant Somali parents than other communities.

Autism Independence is led by Nura Aabe.
Nura came from Somalia to the UK aged eight, and has a child with autism herself. She campaigns for wider awareness of the issues surrounding autism in the Somali community. The interviews were conducted by Fiona Fox, from CLAHRC West, and Nura, who were both researchers on the project. Nura also translated and acted as a 'cultural interpreter'. This research would not have been possible without Nura, who approached Dheeraj Rai at the University of Bristol with this research idea. ACTA, a community theatre company, Nura and members of the Somali community affected by autism have developed and performed a play exploring these issues called 'Yusuf can't talk'. The play has been instrumental in raising awareness of autism in the Somali community and of the challenges for families in raising a child with autism. It continues to be performed nationally and internationally. Nura Aabe was interviewed by Channel 4 News for a piece about autism in the Somali community Nura Aabe on Channel 4 News (at 5 minutes 40 seconds) Nura Aabe, Autism Independence

The research idea was put forward by Nura Aabe, founder of Autism Independence, and Dr Dheeraj Rai, consultant senior lecturer at the University of Bristol, whose previous research has highlighted the issue of autism in migrant populations.
Nura came to the UK from Somalia aged eight, and is the mother of a child with autism herself. Nura Aabe said: "We were lucky to work with someone as driven and committed as Nura, and we hope that this will lead to more collaborative research with local community groups to understand their health needs."
