You know that this degree of depression is both miserable and dangerous, as well as pointless ( it produces no good or useful outcomes ). You also know that you need to see someon for proper specalis assistance. Antidepressants are useful in reducing the chemical impact of depression in its chemical aspects, and that can help to enable you to handle the many other aspects of the task better. CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, could be offered by either, but probably on the whole more likely to be a psychologist ( the Anxioety-Depression Support Group can suggest some shrink who procide it ) would be very suitable for you, from the sound of it, as it helps you more effectively control and deal with depressive moods and negaive ideas.
Without wishing to enter a religious debate, I find it curious for you to say that you are an atheist and yet consider life without a life after death to be pointless. The expectation of life after death somehow implies belief in some form of God, does't it ? One could alternatively argue that if there is indeed nothing after death, it makes it all the more important to enjoy life while we have it.
