First of all my friend, you can't be held responsible for someone elses problems. So don't feel guilty if you can't stop him. Know that you did the best that you could to get him to talk to a doctor. Try to persuade him to be honest with the doctor. They might be able to help him with medication he needs.
Know that you are doing everything that you can to support him. It sounds like you really care and he needs to know that. You have been there, so don't feel that you haven't done enough.
Pray for him, if you believe in prayer. As I said, know that you have done everything you can by being there. Keep emailing him if you need to or talk on the phone. I know that you have done all you can. Just don't feel guilty about
it. Maybe you can get him to seek counseling. That is about
all that you can do short of being there 24/7.
Keep us posted. We are not professionals, just able to offer advice from experience and support. I hope that you can get through to your friend.
