      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

Perfect resume, I would say :D

 

Sometimes yeah, I like meaningful music and really cleverly composed pieces, but sometimes I think that music for fun, for some kind of 'feel good factor' is important too - just to lighten up and chill out and in that sense the video you put up is perfect because its simple, trashy, catchy and I quite like it - I almost put it up myself a few days ago ;)

I get your points about the 'We are Young' track. I must admit my initial reaction is to think about the benefits of being semi-retired. It doesn't take much imagination to transport myself to a works Christmas do at 1:00am in the morning and that coming on the dance floor with a lot of people pissed, for some reason I get an image of middle aged women in evening dresses the worst for wear waving arms in the air singing out of tune trying to balance on high heel shoes, and to be honest it doesn't do much for me these days.

The evening dress has gone into retirement as well and I haven't worn anything with a decent heel sine the late 1970's

Anything Roots Manuva, a pretty unique guy, rather weird in some respect but talks a lot of sense.

I normally put my ipod on shuffle in the car, or shuffle itunes when I'm at home. Today, the last thing I listened to was Who Will You Run to Now by Brother Firetribe. (I have no idea how to post links to videos etc).

Just type the Youtube URL on a separate line (if necessary, replacing https with http) and it will display as an embedded video:

I'm currently listening to Berlioz's opera Les Troyens, broadcast live on Radio 3 from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
