Hi, I started university about 3 months ago and became really close friends with a boy living opposite me. About a month into knowing each other he told me that he had depression and that he was taking medication for it. After this, I would try and keep asking him how he was and making sure he was okay. Recently he's had a bit of a rough patch; he won't engage in conversations, he doesn't go to lectures and he doesn't interact with any of our friends. I was really worried about him and kept asking if he was okay; he kept insisting he was, and when I asked if he wanted me to leave he said yes. I don't know what to do? I want to make sure he's alright, because I really care about him and don't think he should just be sitting on his own, but I don't want to seem to insistent if he doesn't want to talk about it? Can someone help?
