Unhappy can environment make someone depressed ?

hi folks, need some advice here

does anyone believe that the environment can have such an impact on someone that he suffers fm depression ? i'm talking abt the physical environment here - location of the house, neighbours, etc.

ever since we moved into this apartment, my bro has been complaining that he hates the place and its affecting his ability to go about the day-to-day activities. it has carried on for more than 5 years, and during this period, he has been down in mood. he has become very quiet n doesn't socialise much. hides behind the computer all day - i'm not even sure if its computer addiction or depression caused by his dislike for the place where we live. because of the depressed mental state, he can't seem to stay in a job for long. its a vicous cycle n we are all worried for him.

do u think the feng shui of the place has got something to do with it ?
