It's really hard to tell whether somebody's depression will respond to lifestyle changes. Some depression is stress induced while other forms may not be. There was a theory out there recently that treatment resistant depression may exist because many treatments are found via the stress induced rodent model of depression.

For example, you take a mouse and stress it out enough to induce depression. Then you give it an antidepressant and it recovers (faster than it would). Current antidepressants were discovered for their ability to reverse stress induced depression. However, some people's depression is not stress induced. They seem to have a low mood day or night, rain or shine.

For example, I was just off for 2 months. Despite having nothing to do, my depression seemed to actually get worse. I failed to implement a routine and had virtually no social interaction. My job was, at least, forced social interaction.

Left to my own devices I seem to just descend.

However, it's hard to tell because many forms of depression are cause (or made worse) by stress.
