In brief: Start conversation

By telling him you are very concerned by his recent behavior and mood changes, and really want to understand more about what he is going through.
Once the conversation starts and he starts to talk more about his symptoms, it should be easier to encourage him to see a doctor to find out "what's going on" and get a more accurate diagnosis.
