In brief: Perhaps

Depression varies so much from person to person that i hesitate to ever make generalized statements like this.
Some people's depression gets better with increased self-awareness/insight. However, self-awareness doesn't necessarily inoculation one from depression. Many people's depression requires medication to get better. Others get better with therapy aimed at changing thought patterns.
