      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

WHat should I wear?

Recommended Posts

I have my induction day for my new job tomorrow. It is a training day, I will not be doing any work as such.

 

I would have dressed smart for the interview but as I was snowed in the interview was done over the phone. It will be the first time the Personnel Manager has met me in person. And probably the last as well, since I will be working night shifts. I will not be meeting my department manager tomorrow.

 

Because it's the first time they have seen me I thought maybe I should dress smart. I have a trouser suit. But I don't know if it's necessary because it's only a supermarket job, a manual job where I could get a bit dirty and dusty, and they provide a uniform, so it's not really important how I dress. I will feel very self-conscious if I am dressed smarter than the person who is training me.

 

So then I thought maybe I could wear a nice new pair of jeans. They are navy blue, brand new, and as smart as jeans can get. I could wear them with proper shoes and a shirt and I think that would look quite smart.

 

Do you think I can get away with the jeans?

I think that sounds smart enough. They won't be expecting you to be in a suit.

If it were me I would go in the clothes that I would normally wear to work, which of course would depends on what the job was.

And if you are going to be wearing a uniform at work it doesn't really mater anyway.

 

I use to work with a plumber who under his overalls wore a suit and tie.

And where I work now half the staff think their attending a fashion parade The other half wear whatever. I turn up in my normal "at home" clothes.

I'm going to wear the jeans then :)

 

My dad has asked me to make sure the heating is on high for him when he comes round tomorrow because I will not be here to let the door fitters in. They are fitting a door. Central heating is not going to help :rolleyes:

I wore the jeans. It was fine :)

 

 

I'm so glad it was fine . I was about to say " Jeans are a no-no." I would have suggested smart casual, but it does not matter now !
