      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

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:

:lol: you never know :lol:

I have a bit of a guilty pleasure for Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, especially the waterfall/shower scene. :) Although I should stress that I am not in any way responsible for Bryan Adams's overlong sojourn at no. 1!

Ah, the 'Carry On' films - I must have seen nearly all of them once (and 5 or 6 of them several times cuz there's certain ones that get aired a lot more than others :rolleyes:) - three cheers for dodgy TV growing up :jester:

 

Thinking of "films" that are shown very often - I actually quite like certain parts of - The Snowman :P

For some reason I can't stop watching Blade 2. It's a near perfect film; the direction, photography, set up, and characterisation is excellent, plus it's got Ron Perlman in it and that's win everytime! I also love Scott Pilgrim (being a guy who loves his comics, games and has been in a few rubbish bands).

Got some recommendations for y'all -

 

Nick and Norahs Infinite Playlist, Flight of the Navigator(firm fav of mine), Youth in Revolt, Moon(stunning), Another Earth(again stunning), David Lynch's Dune(if you don't treat it as a faithful adaptation - i'm a massive Dune fan), Eagle vs Shark, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Paper Heart, The Big Lebowski, A Serious Man - in fact any Coen Bros movie with the exception of Intolerable Cruelty!, How to Train Your Dragon(all vikings are apparently Scottish), Tangled...

 

Have tonnes more but we would be here for daaaaays....

 

Anyone seen any of them?

Matrix Trilogy - 1st one is best though :)

First one was OK.

I realy lost it with the others, not that I had that much idea about the first one.

 

I don't realy have a favourite film or even type to film, I like anything with a good story.

Just back from seeing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. It is brilliant on so many different levels and is now among my top films ever.

 

The only drawback is you can't take your eyes off the screen for a second or you'll miss some vital clue. By the same token, make sure you visit the loo just before you go in. :blink:

I had to watch the first one about 7 times before I got it ;)

 

I don't really have a favourite film cuz it changes so much - but when I started this thread I just used the word favourite cuz I figured that's the word that makes most sense - I guess - "what films are/have you watched that you hated or liked" would have done :D

 

I really really hate Mamma Mia - so much so that I haven't even watched it (I've seen segments of it and hate it so much that I have to angrily stomp off when it's being watched) - Maybe it's cuz of the actors :unsure::lol:

Just remembered 'Little Shop of Horrors' while feeding my lil girl - 'Feed me! Feed me now!!!!' Don't normally like musicals too much but Steve Martin singing 'I am your dentist' is absolutely rib-ticklingly hilarious (for me)... :P

OMG I can't believe there's another person who likes this film!!! I don't even know why I like it!!! I guess there's just something about blood-thirsty talking plants, weirdo's and psycho dentists :P

Don't judge a book by it's cover or in this case a film by it's title! :wacko: It may be a little dated now but it's a classic and onald Sutherland is brillant as always :blink: And another one he was in 'Don't Look Now' - full on creep-fest but also brilliant! :blink::blink:

Never seen that one but will try to at some point!

 

Sometimes I still hide behind a cushion or my fingers with zombie flicks but I do like 'em! My sis has been a hermit since her bubs was born and went away to Glasgow a few weeks ago for a 'romantic' weekend - right beside where they were filming the Brad Pitt film!!?? (she hadn't seen the news apparently) :wacko:

 

Made the mistake of watching 'Mirrors' which brought back my childhood phobia of the things - didn't see that one coming! :whistle:
