Eat healthy, take multivitamins, get on a healthy sleep cycle and exercise daily. Might not cure it but it helps tremendously.

Great advice. Some depression is situational. Problems such as loss of a job, a breakup of a relationship, imprisonment, or even a move to a new town can make a person depressed. When the situation resolves itself, so does the depression. I'm not as knowledgeable about ADHD, but I suspect that keeping busy via a physically and/or mentally stimulating job can help the person a lot. I think ADHD is overdiagnosed though. Many people are just naturally high energy folks. It doesn't mean they have ADHD. exercise is always good, as is eating healthy.

I agree it's amazing of the amount of children on types of Adderall and Ritalin these days. I call it legal meth. What happens when you need to get off these amphetamines when they eventually stop working? You go into deeper depression than you already were.

Also, come up with a long term goal that you're interested in finishing and work at it daily no matter what. Having something to look forward to helps as well.

Depression can be a serious illness so no sometimes you cannot cope without meds. ADHD may be different.

Some cases of mild depression will go away spontaneously or can be treated holistically. But deep clinical depression is another animal altogether, and trying to live through it without therapy or medication can be futile and even suicidal.

ADHD cannot be cured, only controlled by some combination of medication, therapy, and physical exercise, depending on the person's age. Adults can help themselves by finding situations where their lack of focus and/or impulse control aren't a deciding factor. That can be anything from freelance work, to entrepreneurship, to the arts, to the military. (Yes, surprisingly, the amount of structure built into military life is a Godsend for some ADHD people).
