Our 17 year old son in relationship and dealing with depression

Our 17 year old is a year in his first 'serious' relationship with a lovely young 16 year old, however he is struggling with year 12 in HSC. The stress surrounding his schooling has led him to have days when he's really quite depressed.

His girlfriend is very intense and the constant texting and emotional pressure she is putting on him are taking their toll at times.

Has anyone else had to deal with this kind of scenario and what did you do/say?

My son and I do talk, he's seen the GP but currently is refusing counselling.
