I was scanning this site and came across another post regarding suicidal thoughts from their Aspbergers child: http://www.circleofmoms.com/autismasperg...
Today we had to take our son to the emergency because he made the comment he wanted to go somewhere and hang himself than go to his therapy appt. I told my wife those comments should be taken seriously. They went to therapy and she mentioned to his therapist who in turn instructed us to immediately seek medical attention. We've seen different doctors, psychologists,but can't get to the root of this anger/frustration and his moods within last 2 months have been more on the extreme high/lo scale. People on here mentioned "mental health professional" and I am curious as to what specifically worked for them - psychologist/psychiatrist/combination, etc? It's been a frustrating 5 yrs and we don't seem to be getting anywhere. Any help or personal experiences on what worked for you is appreciated. It's very emotionally draining as a parent to watch an innocent 9 yr old having to deal with such a big challenge.
