But the reality is sometimes quite different from thoughts. People who are troubled by mental problems often try to distance themselves from them, when at that time they need your help, affection, and support.

But there is definitely morning after every dark night. In the beginning, you may feel that she is someone else, especially at the time when she is going through her mental problem. You must always remember that her illness cannot determine how good she is as a human being.

So if your partner is fighting depression, then in these 5 Ways to Help your depressed Partner Deal with Depression.

Never try to silence her and let her cry and scream openly, whatever she wants to do. The work that you can do for him at this time is to try to give him maximum comfort.

2. Never say don't be sad


While talking to him, choose the words very carefully. People who are going through depression never want to hear such words as, 'Don't be sad', or 'Everything will be alright'. Or 'This is a phase that will pass.'

No, this is not a period and it will not pass like that. Anyone who goes through it knows only what is going on. He really needs to work hard to get out of these situations and depression, so that he too can lead a happy life after this. So always keep in mind that through your conversation, you console the person suffering from depression and not bother him anymore.

3. Encourage Heel Her/Him

You should step forward and come forward to help your partner and encourage them to overcome the mental problem. If he has chosen a strategy to heal himself, then support him for it.

You can help take him to a mental health professional or help him to take medicines on time. Or even talk about sitting with him to help with his healing. If he is not satisfied with his healing, then you can also take the help of a professional. You can take a professional appointment to help him and go to the doctor with him.

4. Keep every conversation positive

There may also come a time in your relationship when his conversation may be full of regrets and sorrows. She can experience a lot of grief and resentment in her mind. You have to try and take these conversations to a happy turn.

I know it is easier said than done, but only you are the one who has the power to do it. If she is able to tell her feelings about what she does not like, then ask her directly what she likes. If she can tell you about her problems, then ask her what is the thing that will give relief instead.

5. Keep him away from provocations

Depression also brings with it a lot of anger and resentment. Depression and anxiety involve a lot of unresolved emotions. So she can sometimes be angry and sad about some things that you may not find wrong.

For example, you are not able to spend time with him due to overwork. This can bother him because he has so little ability to understand someone else's problems. Remember, all this is very temporary and you will need to be very patient. That is why keep a distance from those things and try to work by staying near him.
