The psychosocial stresses or chronic traumas of childhood can help to set up the psychobiology of depression. However, once kindled, depression can become driven by biology exclusive of situation and psyche. It can only help to resolve psychological issues. However, this doesn't necessarily change the trajectory of mood illness once it is established. It can, though, especially when psychotherapy is administered early in the disease process. With each successive depressive episode, it takes less and less psychosocial stress to trigger them.

Perhaps ketamine would be worth a try, as Linkadge suggested. Intranasal ketamine is becoming more widely accepted as an alternative to intravenous administration. A friend of mine is doing quite well with intranasal ketamine. She had failed numerous drug treatments for depression. She was only partially responsive to a combination of Abilify, Lamictal, and Wellbutrin. Ketamine is the only drug she takes now. She takes one dose every 5 days.
