HE WISHES HE WAS DEAD    

I have been married for about three years and my husband recently lost his job, and his brother died a  month before that. He recently told me that he wishes he was in an accident  and that he’s thought of taking a whole lot of pills. Since then, he hasn’t wanted to open up to anyone about how he is feeling other than saying that he will try to feel better on his own. He always looks sad and worried. Should I give him space or what can I do to help him?
