I am facing a similar situation Zaira Abbas . But instead of Anti depression pills my friend drinks alcohol and takes sleeping pills. I usually take him out from home for movies or dinner and stuff like that but he rarely agrees. Sometimes I wish if he hadn’t been a childhood friend of mine I would have left him desolate on his own. I feel so helpless most of times no matter what I do I can’t cheer him up . We live together in an apartment so any fun activity looses its fun part the second the room gets filled with his presence. I have asked him to take psychiatric help but he wouldn’t agree. Plus his dad and mine are also college buddies. I have run out of answers to say them over a phone call.
