In brief: A disrupted life

Although the source of the depression cannot be determined from what you say, your friend needs to know that moving to a new community and the disruption of social supports that causes can result in a great deal of psychological distress.
In addition to a psychiatric evaluation your friend should be encouraged to meet people and become part of the community even if this feels unnatural and hard.
