I have recently been dealing with a severely depressed husband who has tried medication and therapy but quickly dismissed both. Our relationship has suffered greatly and he has moved out about 2 months ago (I tried to get him to stay). I have tried to get his family to understand the severity of the situation, he has talked about suicide many times. They were in denial and still are. Right before he moved out his father confronted me and told me that if my husband does commit suicide it will be my fault and all I think about is myself. He also told his family I was just counting the days till my husband dies. All I have been trying to do is help him and help his family understand he is in trouble. After the episode with his father I haven't spoken to any of my in-laws since. My father-in-law convinced everyone that I wanted my husband to die. My husband is from an Indian family, Hindu. I am born American and raised Christian. When I decided to not take that kind of verbal abuse from his father and told him I wouldn't listen he became enraged and I became a disgrace to the family. All I have been doing is trying to inform everyone of the problems there son is facing and how real they are. They think by asking there son how he feels I am encouraging the depression and if we ignore it it will go away. I do not agree. Does anyone have any advice?
