Re: partners depression
A lot of people when dealing with depression, more so for men, tend to disappear into their own heads and try to battle depression on their own. I would imagine this has something to do with the perception of what a man is suppose to be that we learn as children.
The best advice is to keep reminding him that you are there for him and hopefully he will open the door to communication. you might try mentioning this site where he is able to get what is bothering him off of his chest as this may appear to be less intimidating then going to see a doctor or therapist.
