How to get my friend help?

My friend and I have been buds for three years now. Back then I was hella depressed but we bonded over our morbid sense of humor and generally negative outlook on life. In the first year of our friendship, I began seeing a therapist, and have continued treatment. My family is pretty supportive of my mental health journey. My friend, however, who I am very much convinced needs help, has a family that doesn’t believe in mental illness. They feel trapped because they are in an unhealthy mindset, yet their family doesn’t think any of this stuff is valid. They are still dependent on their family, too, so it’s not like they can get professional help on their own.
