      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

    I dont live in Liverpool, but my GP says no where in the uk do adult diagnosis. Even though it is a legal requirement that adults get access to diagnosis for aspergers. At present i am getting every councillor and psychiatrists from my local mental health hospital on the case to try and sort something

    You are a very intelligent person. Unfortunately i dont have amy friends at all so thats a no go. I like drawing so maybe i'll spend some time doing that. I just seem to be getting passed backwards and forwards with the medical professionals none of which seem to 'know where can help'. I'm determined to get myself some help though so i can be a better father and a good person.

    I really appreciate how kind you are being. The only thing that made me feel better was me my ex and our son going on. bike ride together. I am in no fit state to look after him at present. I cant talk to a councillor as i have a major fear of talking face to face with people that i dont know so i couldnt even go anyway. Finding it very difficult to get a diagnosis due to my age and the fact that every one we speak to seems to not care.

    Unfortunately not really. My family and her were close but obviously she wont talk to them. Her parents wont talk to me and i dont really know any of her friends. So im at a bit of a lose end at the minute. Never felt so low in all my life

    Hi thank you for that. Unfortunately as things stand she will not talk to me, understandably so as i have hurt her so much. I do still see my son but have not seen her since this happened. I've tried telling her how i feel but she will not listen. I wish she would try and listen. I wiih things could be like they used to be.

    Hi im Sean 22 years old from the UK. I was diagnosed 2 and half years ago with BPD and since been told that is wrong and 2 medical professionals believe i have aspergers. I have a 2 year old son who i dote on. Heres where things go wrong.. My partner left me a week ago after she found out i cheated. I regret doing it and have no understanding as to why i did. I have always had issues with controlling my emotions and so i get aggressive. I have never hit my ex but did get very volatile throwing things etc.. The only reason i can think i cheated is possibly due to the attention i was given. Just need people to talk to that wont judge me and understand my situation and can give me advice. I love my ex more than anything she helped me out through some very bad times. Thank you
