Teenage depression

I forgot to mention that we have severe mental illness in our family. My mother has borderline personality disorder, my sister is bipolar, my other sister is in recovery (she says) for addiction problems which I believe developed as a result of self medicating with drugs and alcohol, my brother is a crack addict, and he just went on the lam again and spent 20,000 dollars on drugs, my other brother and I seem to have dodged the depression bullet. I believe my siblings problems are a result of being raised by a borderline mother and an alcoholic father. My daughters upbringing has been very peaceful in comparison. My husbands family has schizophrenia in every generation. Ahhhhhh. Insight would be most appreciated.
