I can't find any specific research about this. I want to know if there are specific mental health therapies for co-morbid MH issues, which either do not help people on the spectrum or can do more harm than good. I do not mean medication as that is a separarate discussion.
For instance, I understand CBT can be quite helpful if tailored to our neurology. But with CBT part of it involves facing up to the thing that causes you anxiety, and something like that could be incredibly traumatic for us.
Does anyone have a source I can access to find out more information?
I realise you are speaking metaphorically, but because of this it makes heavy going to read (and heavy going with it's "doom and gloominess" ).
Do you mean literally dead? That if you get enough mental health conditions or they get severe enough you will die from them? I don't believe that is possible. You might die from acting out suicidal tendencies or whatever but I don't think (other than degenerative brain disease such as Parkinson's) that you die from mental illness (even though it can feel like a living death).
Anyway, I'd really like some input on my original question if anyone has any. I am sure I read it somewhere but it might have been anecdotal or the opinion of an armchair philosophiser - although it does make sense.
