My boyfriend and I haven't been officially dating for a very long time, under a month. And last night he told me how much I mean to him (he used to struggle with depression) and he said he went from wanting to kill himself to just wanting to be with me and move forward in his life and that he hasn't felt this loved in a long time. Also, last night he told me he loved me, I love him too, I care about him so much, and I said it back, but I'm kinda worried like what if one day I let him down or something? I've never really dealt with people that have depression, so is this something I need to be very cautious of?

It is potentially deadly and is the number one cause of suicide. If he takes his meds and they're the combination that works best for him then he should be more stable0

Are his family members familiar with his depression? Does he attend counseling? From the age bracket, you all are sadly at the age to be dealing with this, I've felt this way too. My thoughts get the better of me. Since I know you care about it even though it has been for a short amount of time, keep in touch with him at all times and if it worsens, make sure to alert his good friends and family members. At least he is trusting you with this information, this isn't something you'd share with everyone.0
