    There is a difference between being depressed and having a clinical depression (not all people understand this). First and foremost, he should get diagnosed.

    If diagnosed, a combination of talk therapy and possibly, but not necessarily, medication.

    Meaningful activities help. Seeing loved ones helps. Working out and eating healthy food helps.

    It could be a long process. Be patient with him (it can be hard for non-depressed people to understand the depressed mindset). Make him feel that you are there for him.
