Non-pharmacological: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or insight oriented psychotherapy can help. Don't isolate. Spend time w people. Use your support system. Get out. Don’t stagnate at home. Get at least 8 hours of sleep/night & eat healthfully. Daily aerobic physical activity is a big +. Try acupuncture, tai chi, qi gong, yoga or meditation. Recommend the “Feeling Good Book" by Dr. David Burns.

Depression: In addition to the previous support you have received, consider other ways to treat depression. Cognitive therapy is one. See a clinical psychologist who uses that modality. Also, reflect on your diet, junk food, sugar, etc. How is your lifestyle? Get enough sleep? Social support? Please think holistically. Peace and good health.
