      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

I'm so bored and stressed out!

I've been waiting weeks to find out what was going on with that new Avengers movie regarding the recruitment of extras (the locals who play the stock background civilians). Then it turns out they only want to cast people from England despite this movie being set in Scotland. Yeah, work that one out.




People slander me on social media too so I don't get roles in indie films, which that Avengers movie isn't, but you can gather that I feel fed up. Since they likely do this in private messages, it is hard to get anything done about it, and I know who is possibly doing this, yet I cannot prove it. So in other words, it's speculation. But I just have a hunch, because I've seen people I had hassle from posting on Facebook pages for films being made in my town. Then if I asked about being an extra, I either got blocked or they gave a made up excuse acting nice to put me off, when I was about work for extras they tried to say they did not need (yet they cleared stated they wanted extras, so it was clearly just me getting fobbed off). Since a few idiots don't like me over some stuff I said on Twitter, they tell people like other directors local to them, for example, to omit me from being involved in any of their movies. But again, it cannot be proven.


I get this horrible burning feeling in my body; I do have a high intake of sugar. So I think I'm just eating rubbish because I am very depressed, fed up, or something.


Most of the day, I just go online and that is not healthy either. That's pretty much it for my routine, every single day, because I have no social life at all, and I certainly have no confidence left - and I have anxiety issues. I also still live with my family. The house we stay in is very cluttered as my sister had to move all her stuff out of her flat. When the law cost my sister her kids, she got less money and the rent arrears for her flat got too high. Now my dad has put up two sheds in the garden for to store all her junk, and there is certainly a lot of it.


I just feel so tired, and bored. I've been wanting my own flat. It takes ages when it comes to getting one from the council. They make people bid 3 times a week for months. It just never ends. They put me on 'homeless priority' in the fall of last year. It is just a monotony.
