      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

  4. INTRODUCING THE NEW SUBFORUM

    Hi all, I think its a good idea. Because Asperger's Syndrome, ASD, LD and Dyslexia that I have are not curable. So, it might be better sharing information by the ages. And, we also refer the mental health condition to other across the ages at any time we can. Regards, Goody <'>

  6. Decision making

    Hi, Do we fully trust advice that we get on the net? I only collect many variety of informations on the net and I refer those informations and apply to the real life and situation. The only thing that we should pay attention advice like psychological approach. In other words, mind-control-like. The important thing is to have the knowledge of making the right decision communicating here and other websites. It may or may not helpful but please visit my profile if you have a time. Goody,

  9. self harm and depression AS?

    Hi, In general, if there is some autistic symptoms from early childhood without speech delay, then it will be considered as Asperger's Syndrome. There are many symptoms we Aspie have, like head ache, stomach ache, tantrum, panic attack, fear of noise, traumatic things, anxiety, depression and many others. But those come from not directly from Asperger's Syndrome but the stress we have. We AS patients are very sensitive and needs to be provided comfortable living environment. Please refer to my profile. It would be helpful for your further reference. Goody,

    Hi all, As I mentioned in my profile, it isn't curable and continues rest of life. I still have it. The best thing is to give the comfortable living environment. Other than is less important and not good for the patient. Goody,

    Hi all, SSRI was too strong for me when I was medicated. However it may good for some patients. So, it is really difficult which meds are good for us. I just try one or two days and see what's happens even if they(here in Japan, University hospital) psychiatrists give us one month from the beginning. It is dark side of the reality of medication here in Japan at University hospital. Goody,
