      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support

      <b>Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   </b>Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   <b>There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a></b>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   <b>However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.</b>   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   regards, <b> The mod/admin team</b>

L-Glutamin and L-Glutathion

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

 

I read about L-Glutamin and L-Glutathion. They are supposed to help the brain.

Does anyone have experience with them ?

Please tell me if they really work? Which one is better to use?

You would get both of theses from a good healthy diet. These tablets are advertised for body builders. But we all know you can get protein, nutrients etc from normal food without taking supplements.

 

Heres some information

 

Glutathione synthetase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive[1] metabolic disorder that prevents the production of glutathione. Glutathione helps prevent damage to cells by neutralizing harmful molecules generated during energy production. Glutathione also plays a role in processing medications and cancer-causing compounds (carcinogens), and building DNA, proteins, and other important cellular components

Thank you,lynne.

As much as they can help I also read that excess of them might be harmful especially to the children with autism.

You are right: goog healthy diet is the most important.

My son takes L glutamin which is reducing the "leaky gut" syndrome.It has helped or healed him to such extent that maybe he does not have to stay on glutenfreee diet.

It is still early as I try to give him gradually small amount of food containing gluten.

He has been taking for about 4 months and I think 500mg/day.I was also reading in a book that helps some and doesnot help others so we tried as it is a natural foodsupplement and cannot hopefully cause harm.

All the best Edith
