Your description of what has led you to be on medication in the first place appears to be of a psychological nature. In other words, you don’t mention any physiological conditions with depression as a symptom. Psychological conditions can be approach with natural therapies such as psychotherapy or others which you might want to discuss with your doctor
I am not sure how long you have spent experimenting with counselling/psychotherapy and also how many counsellors/psychotherapist you might have tried in the last 2 years in order to get an idea of what works for you. Life’s experiences before, during, and after the bullying will have an effect on the intensity/frequency/length of depression.
It is not impossible to get off medication for psychological conditions but this means you will have to dedicate time and effort with psychotherapy in order to gain insight and emotional strength to deal with whatever has brought about the depression in the first place.
Having said that, counselling and psychotherapy might help you also explore what it is about taking medication that is concerning you? Either way, continuing or stopping medication would need to be explored together with your counsellor/psychotherapist and your doctor in order to understand the ramifications and to make an informed decision on your part.
Hope this has shed some light on the subject, good luck!
