Firstly, welcome to the forums.
These situations are always difficult, there could be a few reasons why is using that as a reason to break up with you but by the sounds of what you have written he doesn't really want a break up. Many posts I have read on here similar to these, most of the time the person who breaks it off wants nothing to do with that person anymore, in this case he still wants to see you and talk to you every day. I think you just need to keep being there for him and re-assuring him you will continue to be there for him as you want to still be with him.
Is he currently seeking any professional help for his depression?
You could also read the supporting someone section on these forums which may give you some insights into supporting someone with a mental illness, simply go to the top of this page and under a section called "The facts" there is a supporting someone section, click that and have a read if you want.
My best for you,
