Please Help Me To Fund Autism And OCD Assessments

Hi :),

I am in need of autism and OCD assessments in order to strengthen my application for Personal Independence Payment (PIP), which will in turn allow me to be relocated into suitable accommodation.

My family will contribute money towards the cost but I hope to make it easier by crowdfunding where I can. My family will make up the difference.

It is not feasible to wait on the NHS waiting lists which I am currently on, as the timescale is in years and my current accommodation and mental health situation are dire.

I have been struggling with these issues, together with ADHD (which has been diagnosed) for my whole life. I have been learning extensively about OCD for over a year, and autism for almost year whilst living in very challenging circumstances. I attended an autism course with an autism charity, after my nextdoor neighbour at the time (who has an autistic son) suggested it to me after seeing me in a distressed state during a crisis situation.

Multiple medical professionals which I have so far seen agree with the OCD and autism interpretations, which is recorded in notes from assessments with two different Community Mental Health teams. However I have not had the chance to see a specialist psychiatrist for a formal assessment and diagnosis.

I plan to arrange an assessment appointment with Psychiatry UK , who previously diagnosed me with ADHD 2 years ago. I found them very good to work with.

Here is what Psychiatry UK have told me about autism assessment:

"The ASD assessment is a complex one and you may need an interview of up to two hours duration and be required to fill in a very detailed questionnaire prior to the appointment.  The cost of this diagnostic assessment is £900 which includes a comprehensive report."

Thank you



See all
