      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

  1. My eldest is 14yrs old. He has PDD & DCD. He has been obsessed by other boys bottoms and bits from very young. We hasve tried teaching him about privacy and not touching others bits but he will still act inapropiatly around others. He masterbates in his bedroom with the door open nowing his brothers or me will see. In the past he touched his brothers. We tried following advice from social workers like removing tv if he do's it. Or time out that didnt work Yesterday his little brother said the eldest did it again I called social worker this morning to ask for eldest to get help . Im very upset as im worride we are going to end up in trouble. I dont understand why he keeps doing it as he knows its wrong. I dont know how to help him any more She is coming out next week

    As a lot of you might know Adams had to struggle a bit to acheve things others will find easy. We where told he would never do things and he proved them wrong each time. We where told Adam would never show love or bond with any thing or any one. I Took a photo at the moment Adam prooved them wrong. This is a very special picture to me and Adams Dad and we entered it in to a comp. Id like to share it with you all . Please feel free to vote if you would like to as id love his picture to be selected to be shown but this is about showing every one any thing is possible http://www.wizehive.com/voting/view/nas-friendship/2960/554340/0
