I think that having money could definately make you less depressed. Perhaps certain jobs like dentist / psychiatrists may be unfufilling, stressfull, anticlimactic. A dentist may get more money, but he may feel trapped in that position, and if he doesn't like it...

My neighbour won a scratch and win lotterly and became an instant millionaire. I asked him a year later if his quality of life has improved, and he answered "absolutely".

He basically said that it didn't buy him any happiness, but it baught him securty, and piece of mind. He said that it was easier for him to relax, and enjoy the things that he enjoys.

Money can reduce the stresses of everyday life. More money can reduce stress even further. I am venturing to say that a lot of depression, whether genetic or not, is triggered by stressfull life events. Being a dentist is can be very stressfull, as can being a psychiatrist. But if you had enough money to do what you wanted to do, I think you have a better chance at recovery.

When a celebrity becomes depressed, I would think that it is a result of the incredable amount of stress put on them. Having money is only one factor. I mean you'd still have to be doing something you enjoyed, and found fufulling.

Lets suppose that you had some strange metabolic disorder that was causing your severe depression. More money means a more thorough investigation, which would lead to a higher likelyhood of uncovering the issue.
