In brief: Get evaluated

Most treatment for moderate to severe depression require treatment from a professional after an initial assessment to determine that the symptoms are not from any other medical causes.
For milder depression/sadness, increased physical exercises, positive thinking and interracting with peers who are positive thinkers and engage in uplifting activities will be helpful.
