      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'm a big fan of horror video games, but personally, I'm not really all that into remakes. With that said, maybe Capcom has finally listened to their fans. This game looks pants-crappy-scary.
  2. What's everyone's favourite films?

    Rocky. The first one is a great film, as is its first sequel. The others are fine, sure, but the tale of Rocky Balboa getting his respect was so warming in the 70's. Sly is back this fall.
  3. I don't like Facebook...

    I did like using Twitter before. Social media has rendered a lot of forums inactive, though. I guess that's what happens with life in general: I see that things move on.
  4. I don't like Facebook...

    So you keep saying. It would be nice if you knew the facts of what went on and why. You know?
  5. Venting over argument with bully online.

    Unfortunately, I've had my work cut out for me with online imbeciles too. There's not much you can do besides getting a new alias, because things that happen in a virtual environment are hard to report, unless you know who the person is who is pestering you. Even then, local law enforcement rarely act on reports and if the person lives overseas, expect to fork out a lot of cash finding a lawyer. I know it's hard to stop Internet harassment completely, as I also tried to pinpoint who was causing this abuse, and gave up hope. I've been put through stressful situations too. One guy follows me around forums, puts my videos on torrent sites, edits Wikia pages about me, adds films I'm in on other databases, and harassed me on a forum a few months ago, where I was even unfairly banned, just because he asked them to. Without any moderators, the administrator just got rid of me to shut him up, but he returned anyway, because he probably suspected I'd try to post there again with a different account. He knows where to find my videos even if I don't publicly list them on YouTube, because of where they are embedded. He knows what things I like to talk about too, which is why he found me on so many other sites and started harassing me even more. Well, I know what state he lives in, but I'm not in America. He lives in New Jersey. The police need to act on complaints, every single time something occurs, because small amounts of abuse can quickly expand.
  6. I don't like Facebook...

    Let me know what you think of this short film that I've attached. nightcloses.mp4
  7. Serves him right. Innocent people could have been killed. His sick actions are distinct from his autism, so he ought to accept it was wrong to make a device he knew could clearly be deadly.
  8. I pledged cash to be in a film, and other perks like getting a copy of it. So I found the producer on Facebook. She blocked me, saying I messaged her private account (sounds like more Facebook style BS to me). All I wanted to know was when it was out. Some people are snooty and incredibly selfish, or anti-social. I've seen people asking for as much as £700 on Indiegogo to be an extra in a movie. That is really quite ridiculous, and almost like begging.
  9. Login security

    Why not just use one of the many free proxy servers out there? I doubt your details here are in any real danger. This is just a little forum, with hardly any activity these days. Like most forums that exist in the Facebook era, actually.
  10. I've been waiting weeks to find out what was going on with that new Avengers movie regarding the recruitment of extras (the locals who play the stock background civilians). Then it turns out they only want to cast people from England despite this movie being set in Scotland. Yeah, work that one out. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/fury-avengers-movie-makers-snub-10188285 People slander me on social media too so I don't get roles in indie films, which that Avengers movie isn't, but you can gather that I feel fed up. Since they likely do this in private messages, it is hard to get anything done about it, and I know who is possibly doing this, yet I cannot prove it. So in other words, it's speculation. But I just have a hunch, because I've seen people I had hassle from posting on Facebook pages for films being made in my town. Then if I asked about being an extra, I either got blocked or they gave a made up excuse acting nice to put me off, when I was about work for extras they tried to say they did not need (yet they cleared stated they wanted extras, so it was clearly just me getting fobbed off). Since a few idiots don't like me over some stuff I said on Twitter, they tell people like other directors local to them, for example, to omit me from being involved in any of their movies. But again, it cannot be proven. I get this horrible burning feeling in my body; I do have a high intake of sugar. So I think I'm just eating rubbish because I am very depressed, fed up, or something. Most of the day, I just go online and that is not healthy either. That's pretty much it for my routine, every single day, because I have no social life at all, and I certainly have no confidence left - and I have anxiety issues. I also still live with my family. The house we stay in is very cluttered as my sister had to move all her stuff out of her flat. When the law cost my sister her kids, she got less money and the rent arrears for her flat got too high. Now my dad has put up two sheds in the garden for to store all her junk, and there is certainly a lot of it. I just feel so tired, and bored. I've been wanting my own flat. It takes ages when it comes to getting one from the council. They make people bid 3 times a week for months. It just never ends. They put me on 'homeless priority' in the fall of last year. It is just a monotony.
  11. It's been pretty inactive here for a while anyway. Minus the odd drifter who posts something, it's not been very busy here for a long time. However, aren't all forums kind of going like this now?
  12. Admins can delete your account, but they probably won't erase certain posts unless you provide links to the posts you want removed. It's usually at the discretion of who is in charge, though.
  13. Anyway, I just want to hear from you lot what you think of this in your feedback. I had support from Autism Initiatives in Edinburgh for a number of years, and had been faced with a multitude of annoying issues over the past several years due to being infatuated with my female caregivers. I've talked about the chaos that ensued over this mess many times on the forums in the past, as well as beginning various threads at other forums on the Internet cataloging everything that has occurred; I believe the user 'trekster' and various other members offered commentary in prior threads on the Asperger and ASD UK Online Forum. So what's been happening as of late? I'm on various supervision orders due to breaches of bail, and for breaching the court orders in general, all over committing analogous offenses. These orders are due to expire in March. Basically, I was agitated that I could not make things up to my former key worker and other people from the company that I fell out with, and I also lost my supported accommodation. So it resulted in a lot of major issues because I was unable to leave things well enough alone, and I was also in jail many times on remand. The latest problems arose because of an actress on Twitter. When she blocked me, I got my panties in a twist, so she ended up contacting other film makers to get me put on a no-no list. The reason this was a breach was because I was ordered to stay off social media, with websites such as Twitter and Facebook being disallowed. The police were obviously contacted as well. They also came to speak to me regarding me annoying the director of an upcoming film, because he refused to cast me as an extra. While that perhaps isn't fair, there is bomb that can be done about other people spreading reports. Once you end up getting a bad rep, or you get slandered in that manner, it's just going to be a lost cause. People that communicate with each other in clannish cliques do update one another on problematic situations, and that's just how the land lays. Sadly, getting new support from social services proved tough. They found me a few guys from another agency in early 2016. Unfortunately, their poor flexible support meant they were relatively unhelpful, and they were not able to get support shifts arranged for special events either, which to me indicated there was little point in keeping them around. Also, I suspected that my court supervisor (who contacts social services) would have utilized the workers as stool pigeons to keep an eye on me. The sheriff agreed that I'm in a state of limbo, and should be in receipt of help; I had to see a psychologist twice so she could prepare a report, and I was able to freely express my frustration at the system. I'm also awaiting alternate accommodation, because living with my family is not easy. The house we're bunched up in is very cluttered, and I think the house is rather clammy too. So the sheriff and my lawyer agreed I need support. Therefore, I could just work with men only, and not have women for support at all. However, there's no other autism-specific support agency in the UK besides Autism Initiatives, it appears. What do you think of Autism Initiatives or Number 6 in Edinburgh helping me again?
  14. Cant cope he needs to move out help

    Paula, are you on the Healing Well site by any chance? Just thought you seem familiar, like I know you from other forums.
  15. It's dead, Jim!

    I'll take a look. I don't suppose you know why people are erasing my name off a film page. It's so wrong.
