Dealing with someone who has severe depression can be very challenging. I think the first thing we need to do is to acknowledge that depression is an illness and it’s not the person’s fault.
It’s important to be understanding and patient with them. We should try to listen to them and be there for them when they need us.
We should try to help them with daily tasks. Depression can make it difficult for them to do even the simplest things, like getting out of bed or taking a shower.
We should take care of ourselves too. Dealing with someone with severe depression can be emotionally exhausting, so we should make sure we are taking care of our own mental health as well.
It can be difficult to convince them to seek help. We should try to be supportive and gently encourage them to seek treatment.
