you should go to him hug him and let all your feelings out even cry infront of him. the reason your fighting is cause you love him and care for him you want him to get it together but maybe being yelled at is driving him deeper in depression. a father and daughters relationship is such a strong and unique bond you need to let him know how you feel. and dont be embarrased to cause if you are then the problem wont be resolved

If he really does have depression (and alot of men do suffer from it) he will probably not have the coping mechanisms he once had and also he will not have the capability or motivation to do stuff or see things in an optimistic type of way.. I would be suggesting talking to your mum how the fighting is affecting you.. kids not matter what age should not be exposed to parental conflict it is just not healthy!! Your dad needs to see a dr for the depression and hopefully be diagnosed and go on meds. See if you can find a web on depression and men, there is an excellent one here in australia called Beyond Blue (it will be worth you or your mum to check it out). I also think you need to seek out a couple of sessions of counselling for your self as I would say the ongoing parent issues have you venting anger in a physical way which is not helping you or your current home situation. You have taken the first step in reaching out on this site the next step is to seek the help all your family members need ... good luck

If you dont want to start a fight with him talk calmly about the situatuion and tell him stuff about the job of a father and the sole leader of the family. Dad is the key source of the family. They work and or cook food and or clean up the house constantly. if you want to take the risk of starting an argument with him get the jobs section from the daily newspaper and place it near him and tell him to get up and make the family awesome again.
