In all fairness, sometimes people go into the mental health field because they know someone who has had mental health problems, a friend or relative. There are actually people who go into the field who do not have issues that need addressing in therapy. In my area, however, which is psychoanalytic, there is ususally a requirement for intensive psychotherapy if not analysis. And, of course in order to do analysis, one needs to go through one's own analysis.

I worked with some very fine therapists at Menninger's who were never in therapy themselves. I don't think that not having therapy means you can't be empathic and know how to work with patients. Just my two cents.
