A friend is deeply depressed and no matter how we try to reason with him, it doesn't seem to go anywhere. I had suggested many things including religion, physchologist, financial help and many things.
However, it goes in spiral. Sometimes, the person who is in it cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel while the people around do not see the problem as big as he does. I do not know what else that can be done except to pray for the person to find strength to deal with the mounting problems and at the same time, to send angels to help him along.
