St Johns wort is a natural supplement that has been proven to be as affective as Prozac (confirmed by psychiatrists)
It works quite well and is worth trying - you can buy it over the counter for under 10$ or £10. Be sure you talk to your doctor first though as it can interact with other medicines and should be used with caution in those with certain health conditions

Hypericum perforatum, known as perforate St John's-wort,[1] common Saint John's wort and St John's wort,[note 1] is a flowering plant in the family Hypericaceae. The common name "St John's wort" may be used to refer to any species of the genus Hypericum. Therefore, Hypericum perforatum is sometimes called "common St John's wort" or "perforate St John's wort" to differentiate it. It is a believed to be a medicinal herb with antidepressant activity, although high-quality clinical evidence for such effects is limited.

The primary pharmacologically active constituent of St John's wort, hyperforin, is an arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor and COX-1 inhibitor in vitro
Common St. John's wort has long been used in herbalism and folk medicine.[15] It was thought to have medical properties in classical antiquity and was a standard component of theriacs, from the Mithridate of Aulus Cornelius Celsus' De Medicina (ca. 30 CE) to the Venice treacle of d'Amsterdammer Apotheek in 1686. Folk usages included oily extract ("St. John's oil") and Hypericum snaps. Hypericum perforatum is a common species and is grown commercially for use in herbalism and traditional medicine.[16]

The red, oily extract of H. perforatum may help heal wounds.[15][17] Both hypericin and hyperforin are under study for their potential antibiotic properties
