My daughter who has aspergers, ADHD, anxiety and severe depression constantly tries to take her own life, it is heartbreaking to watch, no matter what we say she keeps doing it

    The last time we saw the GP he told her to pull herself together and stop behaving like a spoilt teenager

    Hi @pedlar
    How old is your daughter now?
    My daughter overdosed 4 times last year and things have got worse since. She has anorexia nervosa, depression and is high functioning.
    Sadly things got worse when she was transferred to adult services as it's very different and not much help for them.
    She is currently on a section 3 and has been in an inpatient setting for 3 months with now no hope of coming home.
    I hope you get thw help you need.  I would go back to a different Dr  if that's possible. There are knowledgeable ones out there, not all are like the one you saw. 
    Good luck x
