Hi there ~
I understand your situation and it is highly likely that he could slip into depression
. The likelihood is even more if he has had episodes of depression in the past, had been treated for them, has passive or active suicidal ideations, has attempted suicide
, and has feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. I hope you can have him find a good psychologist
to try to have him talk his feelings out. I hope you also can accompany him to a psychiatrist
to have him get good psychiatric medication help.
I hope this helped. Take care and have a lovely day !
