Mental Health Support

Depression and anxiety

Hi there, I searched up the internet for some tips or helpful guide how to support some one suffering from depression and I came across this fourm , read some of the posts and it felt like a lot of people are going through what we are going through.My husband has suffered for years ( on and off) with depression and anxiety but the most recently he s at a point where he has given up on life. Last year he had CBT, wellbeing sessions and meds ( vanaflexin). Now GP has referred him to Mental health home treatment team which so far has been just talk every couple of says with a pair of new nurses.I work full time and have 3 children to look after too as well as caring for my husband. I feel very upset and exhausted mentally and physically but I do believe that this time will pass.
