      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. citalopram baby, yes!

    I am very pleased Citalopram is working for you, but like Sa Skimrande, Citalopram made me worse. I am hoping to come off it very, very soon. I might try rispiredone (an anti-physchotic) although I don't like the sound the anti-physchotic part or I might come off medication all together, I'll see how it goes with the physchiatrist. I have tried Fluoxitine which worked for a while, but when my mood got worse, I didn't work as well. Halla! and good luck with Citalopram : )

      Thanks guys, but if I had a dog, I'd probably get so annoyed watching him trying to lick the peanut butter off his tail, I'd have to lick it off for him !

  9. Do most people with Asperger's have OCD symptoms?

    I think so, but if I come off my meds, will my O.C.Dness return? That's the question... Duh. Duh. Duh. (Ooh, the suspension is killing me) Sorry, that was a bit random. Halla!
  10. I think I need a new profile picture. What do you guys think?

  11. How do you get a new member title or stars on your profile?

  12. Do most people with Asperger's have OCD symptoms?

    I have O.C.D (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). It used to be really bad but now how O.C.D I get varies from day to day. I kinda get an edge from it (I know, weird) but it makes life really difficult. I lack motavation now and my psychiatrist says it's because of my depression. Does medication lower your O.C.Dness? and if I come off my medication, will I get my mojo back ? - mojo being O.C.D. Questions, questions, questions. I need answers, answers, answers. P.S - 'Answer' is such a funny word. Tee-Hee. Halla!
