In brief: Do not blame

Do not blame, do not accuse him. Go with him to look for a job.
Help him to prepare a resume or curriculum vitae. Help him to apply over the internet. Tell your fiends, get the word out he needs a job. Encourage him to do volunteer work or o take a not well remunerated job in the meantime. Suggest to conider o learn something new or complementary to his occupation . Might need antidepressants.
