Son with Autism, depression and GAD
Hello, I' single mum to a 16 year old boy who has only in the past few years shown significant signs of autism. We are now waiting for his assessment results. He also suffers with severe depression and General Anxiety Disorder. He has been out of education for over a year, has recently started self harming, suicidal thoughts (and plans) hearing voice and extreme paranoia . He is seen by CAMHS and is in DBT. I am trying to get a social services assessment for him and for me as his sole carer, and was wondering if anyone has been through a similar situation and any advice please. X
