      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   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.   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>   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.   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.   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,   The mod/admin team

apparently it is characterized as having heavy basslines, samples and reverberant drum patterns - i just thinks it's good music :)

Thank you :) I had a horrible feeling someone was going to link back to the video and just say "this" in answer to my question - so I'm glad you answered it :D

 

I'm listening to your link now (about of a quarter of the way through it) some of it would drive my neighbour nuts so that means I like it :lol:

 

Thanks again

Telemann chamber music performed by Passacaglia

I love baroque music - but only certain composers, mainly Handel and Vivaldi. I feel I ought to like Telemann but any of his music I have heard leaves me indifferent.

 

Tastes in music are hard to explain, aren't they? :unsure:

Well then you must try this. I'm not sure if it's 'safe' - it's definitely not very well known. But it's heart-meltingly gorgeous.

It's nice and relaxing - just what I need after today :D

 

I'm not a big classical music fan (is it even classical? It sounds like classical type music) but the pieces I do like are like this in the sense that there isn't too much going on (as in too many instruments playing at once). One of my favourites is moonlight sonata - can't be bothered to put in the correct title even though I just used more letters saying this ;)

Yes, I find music like this a great antidote to the stresses and strains of the world. I suppose it is classical but I try not to pay too much attention to labels.

 

The Moonlight Sonata is a lovely piece but not typical of Beethoven I think. I find his music in general quite aggressive and angsty.

 

If you are interested in exploring similar music to the Eclogue and the Moonlight, here are two more chill-out classics. :peace:

 

(Wish I knew how to make the videos appear in the message...)
