Sometimes anti-depressants can help. Often clinical depression is caused by a chemical imbalance that drugs can correct; that's the case for my father, as he doesn't really have events that triggered his depression. But even if the depression isn't necessarily initially caused by a chemical imbalance, your quality of life may be improved by anti-depressant medication. It all depends on the individual, though, and any drugs should be kept to the minimum necessary for a good quality of life.
Go talk to a doctor, counsellor or therapist. The internet can't diagnose whether this is clinical depression or something else - there are many reasons why you could be upset, everything from still going through the grieving process to hormones going crazy as you're growing up. It's probably a combination of many factors.
Don't be ashamed if things that 'ought' to work don't. One of the things I have learned from my father's depression is that things that 'ought' to help often don't; you have to find the thing that helps you, however odd it may be. Illness doesn't always follow storybook or layman logic.
