Like the others have said it can help at times. But when the depression is at it's worse it is a crap shoot that is for sure.
One of the main reasons is when we are at our lowest,we think we do not deserve to have fun,and be happy so therefore we limit ourselves.
But,once we are able to let go of that feeling and enjoy ourselves we do feel alot better.
My advice is to take it one day at a time. Keep a mental list of what you know he really likes to do,and try to do that. If it is just eating a certain type of food that he loves then try to seek out somewhere that serves that.
Good luck to you and I hope he lets his guard down for both of your sakes!
