      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

Asperger East Anglia - News Feed thread

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

My name is Martin Howe and as some of you know I am an adult with Asperger Syndrome, diagnosed a few years ago. I am now social media co-ordinator for Asperger East Anglia and have been given permission to cross-post our social media feed content to the three autism forums that I use.

 

I am doing this because many people with autism, and some without it, do not use social media and prefer to use forums like this one; obviously as an adult with AS and as a service user, volunteer and employee for/of Asperger East Anglia, I wish awareness of the Society's services to reach as many people who may need it as possible.

 

After discussion with a moderator it has been agreed that I may create a thread here in the forum to act as a news feed for Asperger East Anglia, analogous to our feeds on Facebook and the like.

 

Please note that all content posted by me in this thread, including email addresses, phone numbers, staff or volunteer names, etc., is official news and is cleared for publication by the society. It's all over Facebook, Twitter and in some cases Streetlife.com, so it really is public; anybody on the internet can, and is meant to, see it; often before it is posted here.

 

Please note that any replies any of you make on the thread itself are another matter; we'd rather you reply to whatever contact information is given in each post or by private message or email to me; however, if for whatever reason you need to reply on this thread, the usual safeguarding precautions about YOUR personal data still apply. So please be careful :)

 

Kind Regards

Martin Howe

Did you know that we have a workshop project in Norwich?

This project provides a supported training and employment service for people affected by Asperger syndrome.

Research shows that those with an Autistic Spectrum Condition thrive in a structured and well organised environment. By channelling their strengths, such as attention to detail, tenacity and the ability to stay on task, with the correct support those with A.S. can make excellent employees.

Some highlights:

* Meaningful work experience
* Develop work based skills
* Increase their chances of securing employment
* Learn new skills
* Improve confidence and stamina
* Develop teamwork skills

Work experience tasters and skills in computers and electronics in the form of a computer and small appliance (i.e., TVs and DVD players) repair and refurbishment service for donated electronics to be sold. Participants will have the opportunity to gain basic electrical knowledge while assisting with repairs and refurbishment.

Additionally, there is a PAT testing service on offer to local businesses, where participants will gain basic electrical wiring skills for small appliances. As well as gaining experience in a real work environment, they could also gain a nationally recognised P.A.T. Testing qualification.

Summary:
* 6-26 Week Programme.
* Practical skills in a work environment.
* Workshop or external placement.
* Up-to-date experience to put on the C.V.
* A reference on successful completion of the programme.
* Job Search activities.
* Compiling a C.V. & Cover Letter.
* Filling out application forms.
* Life Skills.
* Job Skills.
* How to cope in the workplace.
* Supporting Environment.

Beccles adult social group news


As many of you know, I work for Asperger East Anglia; I sell books, operate the Society's social media feeds and run the "Adults with Asperger" social group at Beccles.


I am also a member at Norwich Astronomical Society and have been for over four years, joining not long after I started attending the social groups. During that time, I have progressed to being part of a group of volunteers at Norwich Astronomical Society who help out and give talks at public outreach events. We host cub scout packs, schools and various special interest groups, so it seemed only logical to take the Asperger group along on a group visit.


I would like to thank my fellow club members for their help on Wednesday evening. In fact in all three capacities - Norwich Astronomical Society club member, Asperger East Anglia employee and adult with ‎Autism - I was please with support from my fellow group visit volunteers. It's SO nice to see people who care turning out to further the Club's aims of outreach to various groups as well as the general public :D


And a reminder for people living in or near Beccles: if you are over 18 and have Asperger Syndrome or HFA and wouuld like to meet others like yourself, why not come to our group meetings? A formal diagnosis is not required. We meet twice a month and have a stay-in-and-chat meeting at the end of the month and a go-out-and-do-stuff meeting at the beginning of the month.; there is a similar group for the Norwich area.


Details of the groups can be found on the Asperger East Anglia website.

Live/Work in or near Beccles? Then come and view the eclipse with us on Friday!


This Friday, 20th March, there will be a partial eclipse of the Sun between 8.30 and 10.40 and some of it will be visible from the A Shop yard, 1a Market Street, Beccles, NR34 9AQ; this is opposite "Appointment with Friends" and the Co-Op loading bay.


Weather permitting, we will hold an informal viewing session in the yard, using equipment designed for viewing the Sun safely.


I am a member of Norwich Astronomical Society, so there will be an actual amateur astronomer on hand to help!


Oh and SAFETY FIRST! Looking right at the Sun, even with the naked eye, let alone binoculars or a telescope is DANGEROUS. You could blind yourself permanently. Sunglasses, welder's glasses, exposed photographic film, etc., won't protect you.


Only solar safety goggles or purpose-designed astronomical equipment can be safe and only if looked after and used correctly.


A guide to SAFELY viewing an eclipse is available on-line from the R.A.S.


Have fun but be careful - see you there!

Beccles A-Shop and Book Store at Bank Holiday Weekend

The A-Shop and the Book Store at Beccles are open today (Saturday 23rd May) and we have a furniture sale as well.

Please note that we are unable to open tomorrow or on the Bank Holiday Monday, as originally planned, due to unforseen circumstances. Normal opening will resume Tuesday (26th may).

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
