Hello! I'm Beachgirl and my boyfriend has depression. We have been together for 21 years. Throughout the years I have seen him have bouts of depression that usually wouldn't last long but lately it seems to last longer. He has only been to therapy a couole of times and felt it was a waste of time and money. I will go into more detail in another post about things but lately I also seem to feel depressed when he is. I look forward to talking with you all here and hopefully gaining an understanding of what I need to do to be supportive. Thank you!

Hi Beachgirl and welcome to the forum :welcome:

You will be able to find a lot of support here and many people on the forum have experience with depression. I’m also handling with depression.

I hope you will gain a few good tips. But most important is that you are being there for him.

Believe it or not, it means everything to your boyfriend that you’re there for him. It might not show and he may not say it, but it does. 🙂 Just keep being you
