Friend has depression

Hello there,

One of my friends has just been admitted into hospital for depression. What can we, his friends, do to help him get through this? What do we say to him to help him?

Just be supportive. Visit him when visiting is allowed, and ask him if he wants visits just yet ( he may prefer to be left alone for a while, and to be visited later on ). Ask him what you could do, if anything, that might be useful.
