This is a great question. A thorough evaluation by a psychiatrist (or even many primary care prescribers) can help to discern this. Often, if a person has done CBT or other therapies for some time with insufficient improvement, it may be time to consider an individualized prescription option. Medication is often (but not always) prescribed for measurable improvements in mood, sleep, appetite, interests, energy, and so on, but of course, would be of limited effect for more situational mental illnesses such as adjustment disorders. Medications may also be of more limited effect in a person who is using drugs or has untreated, underlying medical illness. Remember 911 or the emergency room in case of thoughts to harm yourself or anyone else.
