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.

My 27 year old son is very depressed. His 2 children ages 4 & 9 live in another state and he does not have contact with them and this is one thing that is driving him crazy. Seems like he has just given up on life. He smokes pot and drinks a little to escape some of the pain. I have taken him to an intake mental health hospital, and after talking to the doctor there, he chose not to take the help that was offered. Do you know any way that I can help him get the help he needs to get better? I know he needs to see a doctor but I can t get him to go.
