If this is a real Depression, the sort of support and encouragement you describe could help, but ONLY after he has seen a proper shrink for a proper assessment, and has started on proper gtreatment for Depression, if indeed that ist the problem. The best treatment could include medication and/or expert counselling. In that context, your support could be most valuable. On it's own, it probably won't be enough.
