I applaud you for getting the help you need and you likely have a good grasp on how to handle it already from what you have posted. Providing encouragement to seek help in those moments he seems more open to it. Can help ease the path by helping him navigate whatever hoops (ie locating local resources, helping him make appointments, etc) there are to get the counseling/psychiatry help he may need. Exercise patience, active listening, and caring support but be mindful of your own well being and that ultimate responsibility for his well-being rests with him not you. Best of luck to you both!
