In brief: With help
Depression can be successfully treated with psychotherapy and/or meds.
See a good therapist as soon as possible, because depression tends to get worse and decrease your ability to work it out yourself. You would never ask this question about pneumonia or a broken leg, would you? Only difference is depression is 'above the neck.'.
