Diagnosis

Hi, anyone in South Africa?

As I look at the symptoms, I believe I might have depression, I would like to know what I can do to start off with the treatment process. How do I get a diagnosis? I am unemployed currently, do not have money for to see a doctor, no medical aid, can I go to the clinic? Its difficult to talk to family and friends as I feel they would just advice that I should pray on it and it will all become better. Thank you for your time.
