Tuesday's Psychology Trivia: Can a Smile Be Your Umbrella & Help Fight Depression?

Thought for the Day: It's Tuesday and time for a Psychology Trivia Question. Somewhat like yesterday's Motivational Monday's blog post, this one was inspired by a question I responded to on HealthTap. A person who has been suffering from depression for 8 years asked whether  their monotone voice on the phone could be hurting the family business that they help run. I encouraged them to practice a more positive phone voice, like an actor does for a play.
Here's my question:
         Can pretending to be upbeat and happy fight depression?

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for the person worried about how their depression is impacting on their business. I'll post my answer on Thursday.
