Does anyone know of a decent short article to explain depression to partner. He's not stupid but is very much a 'you'll feel better if you go for a run or do some housework' type of person. I'm getting treatment but just want him to understand it.

I'm in a very similar position to you, started a thread about it recently so I'll try and dig up the link.

I sent this link to my DH and I think he found it useful: lifehacker.com/how-to-support-a-partner-struggling-with-depression-1717700336
