      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>

Hi, I'm training to become a software engineer, so I do get my computer messy at times too - its been known to enjoy the odd drop of wine when I've had a long night, lol.

 

To basically clean a computer, or how I do it;

 

Keyboard - to remove surface dirt you could use a product called anti-static cleaning foam, it usually costs around £10 but can get pricey toward the £25 end of the scale. Spray a small quantity of the foam onto a lint free cloth and scrub, adding further small amounts of foam until clean.

 

Screen - I find that places such as Curry's have cheap spray/wipes for screens that are clearly illustrated.

 

Sorry to be not much help, but I get most of my supplies from uni lol.

Hope it helps at least a little.

It's the biscuit crumbs that get me. I turn the keyboard upside down and tap it until the biscuit crumbs fall out.

My keyboard signed the pledge, so alcohol is not a problem.

 

I will, now leave my keyboard, so it does not see me, and have a swig of wine !

You can get Desktop Henrys - I think they must either run on batteries or plug into your USB!! :lol: No idea if they actually work or are just intended as novelty items but they always amuse me in the shop and I have to remember that impulse buying is bad and I definitely do not need one!! :rolleyes:

We use wet ones for the keybroad and a soft brush to clean the key board. We also use window cleaner to clean the screen.
