10 tips dating depression-65

Just like any other struggle, depression can add stress to a relationship, says Heather Lofton, Ph.

D., staff therapist at The Family Institute at Northwestern University.

Encourage healthy behaviors, which are important for them to feel well, says Bobby. It’s not your job to hound them about if they went to their therapy appointment or took their medication, she says.

Be supportive of them through their journey but have a life of your own, too.
