      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

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...)

Hiya I actually replied to this hours and hours ago but my internet cut off so I wasn't 100% sure it'd gone through - obviously it didn't :rolleyes:

 

I only like that one beethoven song ;)

 

The two you attached were really (sorry can't think of a better word than "nice" right now :wallbash: me language has gone). Thank you for attaching them :thumbs:

Ps - are you copying the whole web address of your clips and then pressing insert media on here? Although to be honest the page loads a lot quicker for me when its external links and not media clips so I don't mind how you link it in - they're easy enough to click on and make the thread load faster ;)

I was the same :D Same with Ladyhawke - ooh Ladyhawke!!

Its quite catchy but doesn't grab me in the same way ;) but it does put me in mind of a really tragic song I completely overdid for weeks - someone told me there was a phrase "killing a song" as in by playing it way too much - well I totally killed this one - the sheer shame of it :P

Now that's tragic! Classic film though :lol: I used to love that film as a kid along with a fair few other 70's and 80's "classics" that would be deemed as total rot by kids today :P I'd have to agree when it comes to - escape to witch mountain (or something like that) the blooming thing used to be shown WAY TOO MUCH for my liking - someone rip up the reel :devil:

 

Maybe we should do a what tragic film are you watching thread :D
