How can I overcome my depression ?

I ve had depression before but I don t want to get it again. How do I keep it at bay and not have it come back. I didn t talk to a professional counselor but I did talk to a trusted person at my school. It worked for a while but it kept creeping back up on me and I kept talking to him and it helped me get better but It keeps coming back to me. It has been 2 1/2 months since I ve been depression free and I can feel it coming back.

The person i love has been on depression for a very long time. Instead of coping normally, he will turn to drugs. And he usually takes large doses of LSD! He has tried taking medication, but it doesnt work. I need help! I want to be able and truly help him get through this!
