Bridging the gap between Mental Health & Autism

How does Emotional Problem Solving works?

Emotional Problem Solving should be the never-ending learning development to ensure positive mental health and wellbeing. It has been described as being the “eternal living anti-depressant”.

 Emotional Problem Solving is essentially a talking therapy, designed by its founder, Lavinia Dowling, a qualified psychiatric nurse. It uses a combination of tools such as Counselling, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Social Role Valorisation (SRV), and as well as EPS to give the client the best opportunity to combat their mental ill-health. The aim of EPS therapy is embrace the personality without changing the person, and adapt the environment to enhance the personality.

For many of our Autistic individuals, being made to feel the problem is distressing and exhausting, but with EPS therapy to be validated and encouraged to be yourself is liberating and refreshing. EPS therapy teaches you about your Mental Health and Autistic persona and is about empowering you to take back control of your life and, in the process, repair your mental ill health, rebuild your confidence and self-esteem, and be proud of being Autistic.

The M Word is currently the only independent Community Interest Company that provides a one stop shop in providing assessments and reports, but also support for the young person, as well as the family through our sister company Emotional Problem Solving Limited. This is because our founder and Director of both companies recognised there was a shortfall in the CAMHS service where she was working at the time as a Mental Health Nurse. Over half of daily triage across CAMHS present with traits of Autism, but, because anxiety and low mood is associated with school, CAMHS are unable to accept these clients even though they may be seriously anxious and/or depressed. The expectation is that if school have caused the issues, then school should not expect CAMHS to try and fix, but rather school should find the cause and provide the solution. Naturally, schools are not trained as Mental Health practitioners and are dependent upon basic training (e.g. Mental Health First Aid) and CAMHS support within schools (invariably one day or two a month and not face to face). The other difficulty compounding the issue for schools is there are insufficient resources to screen and assess on site learning difficulties, and lengthy waiting lists with CAMHS across the UK (sometimes up to 5 years) for referrals to neuro pathways due to insufficient resources. The systems are failing one another.

 

TMW offer mental health assessments (especially around high risk and self-harming behaviours) supporting clients with chronic mental health issues in Anxiety and Depression, as well as offering initial screening of Autism (using the ADOS tool), and either direct  or indirect support to young people  or their parents with Autistic traits and diagnosis. We also support directives around mental health needs within Educational Health Care Plans and Annual Reviews to support the families, the schools and Local Authorities. We attend Tribunals, where necessary, and prepare documents for county, family and national courts because of our specialist skill set around Mental Health and Autism, ADHD and PDA.

The transfer from the MoD to civilian life is tremendous, and one that many Veterans struggle with for many years. It can range from being stressful, to distressing, to actually causing trauma. There remain challenges on both sides, and there is a large gap in support for Veterans who are struggling with their mental ill-health. Many Veterans struggle to adapt to civilian life simply due to the loss of comradeship, work/life structure, and status (transitioning from No. 1 protector of the UK sea, land, and air to ‘just’ another civilian). Many struggle without the benefits that the MoD provided with the job, and adjusting from being a part of their unit/platoon to being alone without backup support.

Ex-serving military members may suffer from trauma following experiences in the wars in Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Syria, Afghanistan, and many more with loss of friends, loss of limbs, and loss of self. Nightmares, sensory issues, and low self-esteem become a debilitating experience that also impacts the family. Many veterans feel lonely, isolated, out of their depth in terms of coping, and feeling a burden to their family, their community, and society in general. Some feel that their training to do a job within the forces is now no longer a useful commodity within civilian life.
