      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

It would depend on how I'm feeling when I read the question, but at this moment, I would say 'The Railway Children'.

That's a brilliant point Dijac - and is one of the reasons I started this thread - favourites can change from day to day and mood to mood can't they? :)

 

Today I like phone booth :D

 

Saw the railway children years ago - I used to have it on a record as a kid - the bit where they stop the train with the red "flags" was well loud :P

L.A. Story

Would you be offended if I termed that one as brilliantly tragic? :D Had it on video (back in the day - even the word video seems so old fashioned now :lol:) As much as I sometimes wish I didn't - I've always had a thing for Steve Martin films - and there's quite a lot of them - and I haven't seen all of them :P

 

Also a few Goldie Hawn ones too - they did some together - there was a brilliant one where she just moved in with him and they lived a life of lies (can't remember the title for the life of me - was funny though)

I really love Grosse Point Blank 'cos it's got just about all of the lovely, quirky Cussak family in it. And Dan Ackroyd (officially dx'd AS, you know - collects trainsets too!) I can even forgive it having Mini Driver in. Just. Also love High Fidelity for similar reasons (John & Joan - Not Mini)...

 

Can't remember where I heard it, but heard recently that John Cussack is a bit of a Gay Icon, which was a bit of a shocker! Anyone watch the rugby last night...? :whistle::lol:

 

:D

Am I the only person who read that as "Shallow Gravel!"?

Maybe :lol: but I know the film so even if it had said Shallow Gravel! I'd have known what it meant :D

I got very very confused by Donnie Darko...

It's been ages since I last saw it - but I think the bunny tells him the world is gonna end, and while Donnie is out of his room a jet engine crashes through the roof of his bedroom but cuz of the bunny he's not in bed at the time.

 

Then you get all the weird stuff in the film - cuz its weird anyway :wacko:

 

Then at the end I think time kinda resets (without the bunny warnings) and Donnie chooses to stay in bed (I think he rolls over in bed and grins) - thereby getting killed by the jet engine when it comes through the roof.

 

It still might not make sense and I might have explained it wrong - but that's my take on it from my vague recollection :lol:

Love it! Especially when Christopher Ecclestone starts living in the attic :wacko:

I used to know someone actually called Dave Stevens who refused to watch that film because, as he put it: "I can handle a murderer, an accountant never!" :lol:
