      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

Will you be eating there, or just buying drinks ?

 

If you are eating, you can download a typical menu, and look at the prices.

 

I tried googling, and saw "large glass wine, £6.00", so maybe base your spending around that (eg £6.00 a drink )

Often the First drink is on the house . Are they laying on a buffet. You could always do what I do and stand back and let someone else buy the drinks. If you have a credit cared no need to take cash with you at all.

If you think that's daylight robbery you need to get out a bit. We are going to a family wedding in the August, we could have stayed at the hotel overnight, at a special rate, it would only have cost the 3 of us about £400 for one nights stay, Breakfast not included.

Instead we are staying at a Premier Inn for 4 night cost about £200, (Breakfast not included).

Holiday Inn, Premier Inn, Hilton Hotels...I've stayed in many and yes they are not cheap. Remember you are paying extra for the staff, the service etc. Cup of coffee is at least about £2.50.

 

If it's a wedding reception, aren't the drinks etc all provided (and paid for)?

Only at very posh do's. The last wedding I went to like that was my sisters and she's now a great grandmother.

 

These days it's One drink if you lucky.

 

At my nephew they had bottles of wine on the table for a sit down meal. when the meal was over I grabbed a couple of unused bottles and a glass made do with that for the night.
