      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

    My name Is Jessica. <br />I'm stuck in a body that does'nt belong to me. <br />A flawed thing with weird curves and the height of frankestein. <br />I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. <br />Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My <br />love's not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, <br />a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, <br />my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it <br />is the only one I'll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective <br />curiosity all the time. <br />I've realised in my short time here that the things hidden behind a <br />mist are always the more interesting parts of life. <br />Life for me is a kinder egg with a really shite toy. <br />sometimes though I get a surprise.

  7. Please help....

    Today I've the been the worst in a long time. i was supposed to be meeting up with an older friend ross that I'd turned down before. As I always am with these kinda things I felt sick to the stomuch by but still determined to go as ross is one of the only people who understand me. me and my dad ended up arguing really horrible and I went into one of my rages/crying fits so loudly that next door almost phoned the police as They thought somethign was wrong. The ross boy would have waited in town for me without knowing I was coming and I've ruined thigns for parents again.My dad is supposed to be going to study at uni to become a teacher this year & they always mention that i have to change or I'll be out the house. My mum keeps shoutign at me to pack my bags and leave and even reminded me of what ross must feel like. I feel like I've let everyone down with my behaviour again and I feel totally alone and scared. I just want to make people proud for once.

    have you ever listened to any songs or read any poems that sum up how you feel or how it feels to care for someone with it? I tend to think "how soon is now" by the smiths or "dear hermoine" by bowie are good examples. whats yours?
