      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

Does anyone know how to use facebook?

10 posts in this topic

I need to block one person from starting chat conversations with me, but without blocking chat altogether, and without blocking him altogether.

 

Is this possible?

Got it. in privacy again, click the cog that says custom, at the bottom of the box it lets you add people to a list that is restricted and they won't see your posts.

 

Failing that - you can create a list in chat for that person, and always appear offline for that list ;)

Just had to say, when I first saw this topic I thought my answer was gonna be explaining facebook so I was ready to say: "dunno, you click a load of likes, poke people and say odd things that people find inexplicably funny but it seems to work for me - even if it doesn't make any sense whatsoever" :lol:

sorry - just had to say it :devil::oops:

I've managed to sort it by creating a list, adding just the one person to that list, and then making myself appear offline to that list.

Yeah totally forgot about that one - not to mention tagging people - a tag used to be graffiti too once upon a time :P

Glad one of the solutions worked - and at least you know how to tweak things so you don't get annoyed by people on there - such an annoying program though cuz they'll update again and reset all their settings!! Like secure browsing for instance - last update they turned it off - and notifications filling up email box is annoying too - they reset that last time as well so I had to spend 5 mins checking all the boxes to stop endless notification emails :wallbash:

 

At least you can log in without being harassed by annoying people now :thumbs:

There was a really funny sketch on Comic Relief a year or so back about "if ordinary people behaved like Facebook". Don't know if it's on Youtube because I can't look for it right now...
