when your spouse has depression

Any one out there dealing with this?  It's a recent thing to start happening and I know the source of his depression.  The problem is that the source is his family.  Which makes it hard when I need to go to him with family issues, he can't be there for me any more.  I understand that when you're with someone who is experiencing this, you have to not be selfish, but I'm going through a serious family issue with my brother and I feel like I don't know where to turn.  He's been there for me with this issue before, but suddenly, since the depression has popped up, I feel like I can't really go to anyone.  I'm trying hard to stay positive and for the most part, our relationship is fine. I just wish I could have support on this one.  Any advice? Or even just someone who knows what this feels like?
