My advice is to start off by telling her you want to talk about this because you love her, are worried about her and want her feel better. Focus on how it will help her. Give concrete examples of why you feel she is depressed and if you feel comfortable, tell her you are on antidepressants and how they have helped you. Also offer to take her to her doctor or make a phone call for her if she wishes.
If she agrees, make sure you follow up with her and verify that she did what she stated she was going to do (go to MD, get on antidepressants, see councelor, etc). Accountability is huge.
Best of luck
