I agree db but the OP's not actually been prescribed real antidepressants or been diagnosed with depression yet, and it doesn't seem like she can afford professional treatment at the moment (and this is why I love the Australian universal healthcare system where *everyone* has insurance!).

Freshly squeezed blackcurrant juice.

The best & most natural antidepressant is exercise, hard sweating cardio but it takes effort. However it gets the best results.

Go to a gaming store on a night they are demoing new games and try them out. As silly as it sounds, the Pokemon Card Game is fantastic. It is fun, really easy to learn, and lots of people play it. I just love sitting down and playing games. Pokemon and a neat board game called Hive are my favorites.

Eating a diet rich in certain foods are good for depression. I've suffered with depression since I was a child (I'm 42 years old now), so often on the look out for treatments!

A carbohydrate rich diet such as pasta, wholemeal bread, high fibre cereals etc may help. Also Tryptophan is an essential amino acid which is converted in our bodies into serotonin, a neurotransmitter, or chemical in the brain. Foods rich in tryptophan are chicken and turkey, tuna and salmon, beans and seeds.
