    How do i get my depressed partner to talk to me and stop self-secluding ?

    My partner and I had an argument about nothing really. He became verbally aggressive and threw and broke something. He has been diagnosed with depression. Hadn't been taking his meds. Lost his job nearly six months ago. We have been struggling financially. He has been locking himself in a room at his mother's for the past five days and won't talk to anyone. I don't know whats going on with him. I feel like it's all my fault. I'm living in limbo not knowing if our relationship is over. How do I help him get through this ?

    I agree with Diane - this may be concerning, and you certainly may benefit from support for yourself as well. The best way to find your local mental health service is to google 'mental health triage' for your area.
