      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

On other disorders and where they came from.

Recommended Posts

An interesting BBC mini series, all available on Youtube as usual, but informative nonetheless and it is called;

 

The Trap; What happened of our Dreams of Freedom

 

A series pertaining to social engineering, but what is in that series of mini documentaries is a comment regarding the growth of all the disorders that we know now like ; BPD, ADD, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, GAD depression and many others and more importantly, where they originated and why.

 

Now it is usual that when I want to find out about something free of bias I look to edges of a subject, even other subjects that overlap for I am fully aware of bias because bias some people's livelihoods depend on it and there the interest in promoting what will keep them in employment.

 

So, make of this what you will ;

 

- watch from time point 07:14

 

And up to time point 08:00 on the link below ;

 

 

And there find that elusive question again ;

 

What is normal.

i think this is an "interesting" subject topic of where each co-morbid related conditions overlap or become seperate conditions on there own ... it is find out the 'true' source behind the mental health conditions and also where neurological /developmental "spectrum" long line of ever exisitng and ending continue onto mental health 'spectrum' of conditions which also now being added to 'everyday' along with ASC's too!

What do you make of this?

 

What future awaits us......?

 

The war time generation have been living longer so everybody assumes ours will also....but they grew up on simple healthy food and not too much of it. Clean water. Cleaner air. Far far less environmental and medical poisons. We are not that generation. Maybe ours will not be so lucky.

 

Where do all these disorders come from? The same place infertility, sickness, war and famine is coming from I suspect.....

It would be nice to be content with ignorance. How sad to be right when you want to be wrong.
