Depression and rejection??

One of my really good friends has a chronic case of depression, which means he's ALWAYS depressed. He's not emo or anything, but he threatens to cut himself all the time and refuses to talk to a counselour or a doctor about it. His girlfriend just recently broke up with him because she said he was to needy and she didn't want to be around him, and now he's even MORE depressed. What should I do??

    as a sufferer of depression myself, i would tell you to stick by him because he is going to need you. Depression is a real illness and needs to be handled carefully, as the slightest thing can tip his emotions overboard. be there for him and make sure you listen to him and also suggest going out and doing something fun that he'd like to do, so hang in there

    Over the last five years I had begun to have increasingly withdraw into a downward spiral of depression..

    But now with the method I can fully focus my energy and thoughts into a decisive line on how to make my life better constantly. And it works like magic! I'm beginning to attract people to me once again and things have just been looking up since then.

    well for the first dont let him eat deppression pills they are proved to cause suicide thoughts.

    and for the second dont let him use or have mobile phone near him (they cause deppression)

    and then just be there for him
