Get educated: Having a parent with depression/anxiety can increase the risk of having a child who is at a higher risk for developing depression. However, many children have a parent with depression/anxiety and never develop it. Environment plays a significant role in the development of depression. The better one is equipped to deal with the stressors that life provides, the smaller the risk.

If you are nervous, either keep him as a boyfriend and look around, but do not finalize anything or have children until you are entirely comfortable with the situation. Vacillation leads to divorce and worse.

Psychotherapy + meds: Both depression and anxiety are highly treatable with psychotherapy and medications. Cognitive behavioral therapy in particular has good results with both depression and anxiety. There are also medications that can effectively treat both simultaneously. Talk with your doctor and being the talk therapy process with a mental health profession. Delay in treatment exacerbates the problems.

Lend Her Your Ear: A common complaint i hear from my patients who suffer from depression/anxiety is, "no one listens to me or understands me". Educate yourself about her diagnosis. Ask her what she needs, then listen carefully to her reply. Provide a non-judgemental, compassionate, safe environment for her. The following website will provide invaluable info: http://www.Nimh.Nih.Gov/index.Shtml. Good luck to both.
