A really good exercise program can be very effective. I’m not talking about just going to the weight room six times a week – he needs to get involved in some structured exercise with a good workout and someone helping keep the discipline up. Martial arts, aerobic dance, tennis (lessons, not just hacking around), training for a bike race, that sort of thing.

It can also help to volunteer for a program that serves underprivileged people, like a homeless shelter or a literacy program. Sometimes people who are depressed can get their attention re-focused effectively this way. (Make sure it’s a program that has good supervision for its volunteers, giving them useful assignments and not just letting them sit around.)

Your friend also needs to make sure he is eating a good diet with no sugars, artificial sweeteners, or chemical additives as these can have a big effect on depression. Organic whole foods, freshly prepared, are best. Use good unrefined oils and get enough of them. A good nutritional therapist can do a lot for depression.
