In brief: Love helps
Here's why. We are social creatures.
Depression often leads to emotional isolation. Making an effort to connect to the people who care about you is one way to help. Depending on the severity of your depression, starting a romantic relationship might be difficult. Often people who are depressed do not give others the impression that they are interested, emotionally available, etc.

In brief: Possibly
If you are depressed because you are lonely, maybe.
If clincially depressed, you need to seek help as starting a relationship might only complicate things for you.

Depends on your situation? Depression is not just feeling low from being alone or feeling unappreciated!
