    One of my colleagues is under severe depression

    I am working in a government organisation. One of my colleagues recently lost his father in an accident and now the company is thinking of terminating his services due to the deterioration in his performance day by day. I am really feeling very bad for him as he is under severe depression. How to help such an employee?

    Hello,

    Time is the best healer. Let him give some time to get rid of mental trauma. You should
    also provide him help and support whenever is possible. Talk to him and give him confidence
    and confort he needs support and it can only be given by his fellow colleagues and friends.

    Bye,

    Hello,

    Since you are getting a hint that he might be losing his job,I think you should do something for him.You can go to your higher authorities on his behalf and explain the entire situation and phase that he is passing through.You can ask for sometime on his behalf ,so that he can come out of this vulnerable situation and can concentrate on his job.Your aim should be to convince the higher authorities and ask for for some time say 6 months.I think on humanitarian grounds they will provide him sometime.Once you get this grace time,your task will be to talk him to a psychologist for counselling.Your friend needs medical assistance and counselling so that he can come out of this trauma.

    Hello
    The death of our beloved is very sad thing in a person's life. Sometimes we try to forget about this thing but it is too hard for us. Same thing are with your friend and he got depression and this affect his working efficiency.In this condition you should be talk to him and told him that he tries to come out depression and consentrate on his work.Also tell him about the action of company. You suggest him to take the help of a psychiatrist to come out from depression.You also asked him about the real reason of his depression.May be there is another reason foe his depression?
    good luck.

    hello,
    its a good thing about you that you are worrying about your colleague.this shows that how care taking you are.first bring him back from the depressed state and console him and try to fresh up his mind by taking him to some fresh place or take him to a small trip.and also say him that we are there for you and we will be standing behind you and will help him any situation that comes in future.
    and also say him that his performance is decreasing day by day and say him that he should come out of the situation as soon as possible and say that there are persons whom you should take care of.
    coming to your company issue take your colleague to your manager and say him the situation and ask him some time for his recovery and say him that if their is any pending work by his friend will be completed by you as soon as possible and promise him that the situation will not be repeated again.
    thank you..........
