According to Jordan Peterson, even though the symptomology is similar, the cause & the cure for these conditions are very different. A depressed person has low levels of serotonin in his system. Such a person can be impulsive & more emotionally dis-regulated and can face diffuse negative emotions. The person at the bottom of the dominance hierarchy doing anything is unsafe for that person and society. A person might have tenuous status in the dominance hierarchy just because everything about their life is rude.
