      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

Hi we have used Sainsbury's peach high juice with some success for the last 5 years and guess what, they have discontinued it. Any ideas for an alternative - not meridian pear juice though, thanks Lin

Hi.I am pretty sure lidl do a peach nectar.It is likely to have more sugar in than high juice.I don't know exactly what is in it and lidl don't have a list of ingredients on a web site.However if you think it might do I will have a look at the box next time I am there.Karen.

Lidl used to do a brilliant pear juice.

 

We use pomegranate -stacks of anti-oxidants and no hyper-ness.

 

but it's horrible :sick:

 

Pomegranates are not something I've ever really 'got' - all that aggro picking out a pip that has the texture of a bogey, no flavour and a horrible skin around it ...

Rhubarb - that's what you want! (Accherley - I've gone right off that since it became 'trendy' :angry: Thank god I've still got my gooseberries! ;))

Hi emma - I think the Robinson's ones - even the non-'barley' ones - usually contain some less than helpful ingredients, so you need to be a bit cautious with those...

 

A word of caution re the 'nectar' style juices mentioned earlier in the thread - they usually have loads of added sugar, and sometimes the dreaded aspartame too :wacko: It's a catch 22 'cos avoiding the nasties usually means more sugar or more acid :( With fruit juice I try to get Ben to add about 25% water which cuts into the acid levels very effectively, but i'm sure he 'forgets' when i'm not around! By the time he's twenty he'll have see-through teeth! :lol:

Hi, I agree about the nasties in Robinsons, especially aspartamene, not good. Luckily, my ds will drink his juice with 75% water so we can get away with the nectar as long as it is just juice and sugar. I like picking out the snot , sorry seeds in pomegranites, it was one of the highlights of my otherwise fruit deprived childhood! Lin

Have you thought about making your own fresh. You dont need a fancy juicer, you can get a liquidizer from tesco or asda for under a tenner, liquideze a couple of fruit strain it through a cheap nylon sieve (as opposed to a metal one as the holes are smaller) water it down in a jug and add sugar if necessary.

 

It should keep for a few days in the fridge.

 

Worth a try if you can't get an alternative to suit.

you said you don't do citrus or blackcurrant, what about apple or summer fruits? i saw both of those in sainsburys today, and both are sweet so reasonably close to the peach.

Is this any good? Our kids like it but I know the grape might be a problem.

 

If not try health food shops. I used to buy fruit drinks from them which had no additives in but they were concentrates in a bottle. I cant remember what the brand was though.

 

Failing that, write to Sainsbury's explaining your problem and ask if they can locate some from any of their branches. Write directly to Justin!

 

Some baby juices also have peach in
