Those chemical imbalances can be set off by work-related stress.
Been there, done that, nearly went to the hospital. If the professional
diagnosed this person with Major Depression related to work, I'm
inclined to take their word for it. Furthermore, clever remarks and
directives to "snap out of it" are only going to make this person feel
WORSE. Is that what you want?

In the meantime, discussions about what causes depression and how
to deal with it aren't really germane to Anonymous's problem or to the
list. They want to know how to deal with what they feel is a bad
situation at work.

>From their original message, it seemed to me that Anonymous had
most of their bases covered, and since then there's been good advice
on how to determine if they're being asked to commit copyright
infringement or just adopt a particular look-and-feel; on whether or not
to consult a lawyer; and on whether or not to "blow the whistle".
Anonymous, please take the good advice and try to disregard the
other comments.
