Are you anxious about the lifting of Covid restrictions?
Today is the day that England lifts the final remaining pandemic restrictions and mental health charity Mind have called for greater mental health support to continue for people with anxiety as we emerge from lockdown.
The mental health charity Mind says the mental health consequences of coronavirus calls for an immediate and long-term commitment from UK government.
Lauren and Angelica-Jane explain how they have coped during lockdown - and why they fear the end of restrictions will be challenging for their mental health.
It's now on season four, but we've not come across the Netflix comedy-drama Atypical @atypicalnetflix before. It follows Sam, a teenager on the autism spectrum, who has decided he is ready for romance. As anyone watched it? What do you think of it?
I couldn't watch it.......too stereotypical. Worse still is "Speechless"! Excruciating!
I quite like it, although it does follow the stereotype
I thought it was great 👍maybe because it's how I see my son but understand alot of ppl wouldn't relate to it as all our beautiful asd kids are different x
I only heard about this series this week and going to give it a watch tomorrow. Hopefully it's a little more realistic than the A Word!
I've seen it, it's reasonably entertaining. If you watch it looking for, and being dissatisfied with, all the clichés, expecting unattainable standards of medico-psychological veracity and über political correctness, you will, of course, be disappointed. If you accept it as a Hollywood take on an autistic person's interaction with the world, then, yes, it is as good as it is likely to be, when it also has to be a commercial success and autistics are a minority.
Its brilliant no 2 people on the spectrum are the same so yeah may be perfectly done to some but not all
