  all you can do is be there for him. be his sounding board. let him know that no matter what he can always talk to you.. i would also try to make myself more available to him.i understand that you may have been busy, but try to fit in more calls in the transitions of your life. even if its only a five minute call just to let him know that you are thinking  about him. sometimes guys needs that boost, but they arent so good at asking. otherwise, just being there for him. maybe you can get some more stuff crossed off your to do list during the time he has to be in the lab. also, if you have a smartphone and he does. you should download heytell. its like a walkie talkie device for phones that you can just send quick messages to each other throughout the day without yhaving to actually call. at any rate, i think you are doing good. good luck!!

as you cant fix the problem for him then be there for him (in a LDR way of course).

listen to him and remind him of the positives in his life, what he has to look forward to and that he is loved.  remind him to take one task on at a time and if you can, email or mail him positive affirmations – i know my husband reponds well to those when he is feeling overwhelmed
