I'm sorry, but "talking to and treating thousands of depressed people" and being depressed yourself are two entirely different things. You can be empathic all you want, but you can't get it unless you've been through it, and it's wrong to say you understand if all you've done is listen to other people talk about it. It's like trying to say you understand what it's like to give birth just from having watched videos of it.
