I'm not sure how to help so please help me

My boyfriend suffers from bipolar depression. In the beginning of our relationship he seemed to be very happy and he always took his medication, but now he seems distant and i know it is becuse of his depression, and I know he stopped taking his meds. I've told him several times that he needs to continue to take them because they help him, but he doesn.t want to. He knows that it is beginning to hurt our relationship, but he doesn't know what to do. He has asked me repeatedly what he should do and I don't know what to tell him. I refuse to just give up on our relationship because of his depression, but I don't know what to do to help him. I know I can't make him better. If anyone could please help me, and tell me what I could do to help him, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.
