      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. I note a previous post saying accounts cannot be deleted but this is against new GDPR rules. I request to have my data deleted or I shall be forced to report this
  2. I guess you didn't get to delete your account then! I also want to delete mine... no obvious way

  3. Music Files

    I think the real key here is what you are trying to achieve... if all you want to do as you say is copy the files to your PC, then burning as an audio CD is not required, just burn the files onto the CD as data files and not music (you will fit far more on per disc this way too). Once on your machine, there should be no issue opening them in media player, and media player should definately recognise them without you needing to manually click them. Just ask media player to scan your PC for new files to add to its library.
  4. Just noticed the original post date so perhap this was a bit too late! oh well useful for tohers I guess, and a good reminder to those who feel secure... you aren't!
  5. Windows passwords take seconds to crack... download Ophcrack live cd (just google it), burn the cd, boot to it an voila, the password will be displayed in under 5 minutes usually. WinXP is easiest, Vista uses a different hash so is harder to generate the rainbow tables for.
  6. So I Have Started A Blog

    oohhh great I'll take a look. I once started a blog but kept forgetting to update it and so dropped it in the end. I think you should tey and blog regularly and then turn it into a book one day
  7. not eating and saying food is dirty

    My stepson is also obsessed with food, bread and apples are his staple backups! After a massive bowl of cereal he asks for another, and after that one he will happily eay an apple. He literally eats us out of house and home. He too eats too fast, doesn't chew enough, just throws it down his throat. However, because of his ADHD meds he loses all appetite! So we are having the opposite issue at the moment, he isn't gaining enough weight or growing as fast as he should be.
  8. You tube video Made by me an ASD person

    That's really good, and I am also so glad it had text so i could watch it at work without the sound! What I really like is that you have created something which can be communicated clearly to people who don't have ASD... sometimes I need the reminder!
  9. Autism cards are being made available

    Yes that could be difficult! I'm not sure if the Police in my area would have any idea about Autism, if you gave them a card I don't know what they would do with it. My boy is so regularly out being disruptive in some form and the locals are the kind that refer to the standard naughty child syndrome. The problem here is clear though... a child missing a limb clearly has a disability and will be treated appropriately, but ASDs are just not obvious; I know my child has an ASD but I still struggle to know exactly how to deal with him at times!
  10. Hi I am a Power Consultant in the North West and have a stepson with ADHD and Aspergers, my two other children are 3 and 1. I have joined the forum to chat with like minded people in the same difficult boat that we as parents find ourselves in
