History of mental illnesses, tragic loss or other traumatic events that trigger her condition? You can’t really help her, if she wants help, she’ll ask for help. The only thing you can do is stay with her and encourage her to seek it herself.

Carl Jung’s psychological philosophy cured my depression.

@beyond, is right in many ways.
@morgy, has she ever talked to a professional counsellor or doctor about her depression?
I am a mental health therapist but would not offer any specific advice without speaking to her.
Feel free to email me:)
Otherwise, having been a guy who has had a couple of girlfriends that have suffer from depression and in one case cutting, I know how it takes a large toll on– YOU that is tough and I sympathizes with what you are going through.
Do you feel she is suicidal, have you asked her?
