Default I Wanna Help

My boyfriend and i both have depression, but we deal with it in different ways. Ive learned to keep mine in and not bother people with it, instead I help other people with there problems. my boyfriend on the other hand likes to bottle it up inside and not let it out in any way, until its too late and hes on the verge of a mental break down. The past couple of months have been a lil rocky, but then today he told me that he was really depressed and freakin out. He wants to go to the hospital, and he said that hes felt like this for a while but has been trying to fight it, but i guess it over powered him. I want to help him, but when i ask him whats wrong he tells me that he doesnt no, there no underlying problem, hes jus depressed. What can I do to help him?

You can help him get to the hospital or see a therapist. Maybe he want's to talk to someone neutral. It's hard to talk to somebody you love about being depressed becuase it's embarressing. And they're not always the best person to talk to about it because they are not objective. You mentioned that you also suffer from depression, maybe he dosen't want to burden you further with his problems.
Just be there for him emotionally and just listen to whatever he says.
