You can just ask them their opinion.

"How did you learn to take control of your mind?"

"How did you beat depression?"

"How do you build a solid mental/emotional foundation?"

We might not have formal CBT training but we have decades of informal CBT training and experience.

Sometimes, the guy with the life experience is more helpful than the guy who has been learning out of a textbook.

There is no magic book that will solve everyone's problems. There is no magic technique that will cure depression for all. The depressed person must aggressively seek out and experiment with different methods to find the ones that work best for him.

Our depression is unique to all of us and the solution will also be unique.

Trial and error is necessary. Persistence is a must. Treat it as if it was life and death, it basically is..
