Hoping for some advice on how to help a friend who is depressed, regularly speaks of suicide, doesn't leave their room and has no semblance of life. They have tried many different antidepressants over the last 6 months but never get beyond a couple of weeks at most due to side effects. My feeling is that if they could continue on them for longer they might actually work but what approach should I take? Gently supporting them at their own pace or a more assertive approach, booking GP appointments for them etc.
