In brief: Yes.

It is actually quite common for certain mental health problems to overlap.
Especially anxiety disorders and depression and/or depression and alcohol dependence. When two illnesses overlap it is called "co-morbidity". Fortunately some medications can treat both anxiety and depression at the same time. Many anti-depressants treat both anxiety and depression.
