In brief: Yes!

Many people have recovered from major depressive episodes and gone on to live high-functioning, full, and productive lives.
There are many things that can help a person with major depression feel better, including counseling, therapy, support groups, and medication. Major depression is common and treatable. If you think you may be depressed, i encourage you to talk to your doctor.
