Is his depression clinical (meaning chemical imbalance), or life induced?
Either way, you're right. Your relationship is not enough for him. He either needs medication, or he needs to sort out whatever has him in this funk. The only thing you can do for him is be supportive. He'll either want to talk to you about his darkness or be distracted from it by you. Figure out which that is and do it, if you want to help.
The flip side, there's no point in you both being unhappy. If he won't let you help him you should break it off. Do it gently. Tell him he needs to focus on himself and when he's ready maybe you can try it again.
