Resolved Question:

Hi. My fifteen year old daughter has Asperger's syndrome. She has been feeling increasingly depressed lately and I am desperate to get her help. How can I find a local (private) psychiatrist who is experienced in dealing with children on the autistic spectrum? We live in Twickenham UK.

Hello
First of all, the GP can refer you....which might even negate the need to go private.
Otherwise, another way is to call the hospital in your area here

Ask to talk with the director of psychiatry's office, and tell them the situation.
Or, most directly, call this service...read this page carefully.
