      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

Hi all

 

Is there a diferent add on so i can correct my own spelling errors on here? The underlining in red part isnt happening for some reason. The main difference is i have this application on my mobile as well as the desktop.

 

Any ideas?

If I'm writing something of any length I tend to use a word processing software which has a spell check that underlines any errors (although I have it disabled right now for exam reasons) and then correct them and just copy and paste it in here - it would be a hassle with shorter messages though.

 

What browser are you using? Some have spell check options and this could be the problem.

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea.

It plainly marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye can knot sea.

 

Eye strike a key and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh.

 

As soon as a mist ache is maid

It nose bee fore two long

And eye can put the error rite

Its rare lea ever wrong.

 

Eve have run this poem threw it

I'm shore your pleased two no

Its letter perfect all the weigh

My chequer tolled me sew.

 

Anon.

To be honest, spelling isn't such an issue here. I 9 times out of 10 make out a post even with no commas or full stops. a spelling error doesn't take a genius to translate.

Really? I've always found trekster to have some of the best spelling and grammer on here. Better than me anyway.

Only due to being off dairy and gluten, having my PC underline the misspelt words and then remembering what their correct spellings are so i can change them. i also access this forum via my mobile so was wondering if there was a good dictionary to go with the internet for my phone.
