Welcome to the forum! Good quiestion. You'd probably get a different answer from each response. I know that it is very hard for a guy to deal with a situation that he can't fix. You will probably need to help him understand what you need from him and what you don't need from him.
A book that really helped me see things from a guy's point of very is "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus". It is NOT about depression, but points out many differences in the way men and women process information and deal with it. It is a good read and readily available at most public libraries.
I think it is a learning process for both of you . . . just make sure to communicate.
Keep us posted!!
