Hi! I'm currently dating my girlfriend(clearly) who has depression. She's had it well before we met and began dating. She takes medicine for her depression and depression also has try numberous medicine. Currently, she is admitted to the hosiptal for the second time to be in impatient because she tried to take her life for the second time. I've reached out for help and I'm learning what depression is but I need help in ways that I could support her and I'm also confused on what I should do. Please help.
