Exercise is a key ingredient to batttling depression.  If it is not enough, then there are many other options/combinations of approaches, including:

--psychotherapy

--mindfulness meditation

--bright light therapy

--L-methylfolate

--hormone therapy

--medications

--non-invasive brain stimulation, such as cranioelectroc stimulation (CES) and transcranial magnetic stiulation (TMS)

--ECT (electroconvulsove therapy)

--VNS (Vagal nerve stimulation)
