I need to get back on meds for my depression; however, I am uninsured at the moment and can't afford them. What options if any are available for obtaining discounted prescription medication?

I have been on and off prescription meds for the treatment of depression in the last several years. Most recently, I was taking a moderate dosage of generic Zoloft as prescribed by my former GP. It was working well. At the end of the last year, I lost my job and the insurance it was providing and had to stop taking the meds and stop going to therapy.
Since then, things have gotten progressively worse and I feel that I need to be back on medication (at least). The trouble is that I don't think I can even afford generic Zoloft at the moment. I'm in a heap of debt and trying desperately to catch up.
I live in Seattle, WA. Can anyone recommend any resources for someone such as myself? How can I obtain a prescription without paying to see a doctor? Are there community resources for sad, broke guys like me? I really need help.
