Depression I understand to a degree since I've experienced stuff like that before. I'm not accustomed to the majority of them though. I can deal with mental illnesses to an extent. Severe illnesses would probably be a big enough turn off to where I wouldn't date them.
I think of it like this: I treat people with mental illnesses like anyone else. I don't give them extra points to account for the illness. I put them on the same playing field.
However, no matter how severe the illness is, nothing is saying I won't be friends with them. And, if the friendship happens and I figured out I actually really like the person later on, sure I'd date them.1

Depression is so debilitating for the person suffering. It all depends on the reason for their depression. There's many reasons for Depression and many levels of the severity of depression too
If someone was depressed due to a breakup with a person they loved then I wouldn't date him, because I would never give my heart to someone who was still picking up the pieces of their own. They'd need time to heal before they could ever be happy with someone else
If they were depressed due to unresolved issues or a past trauma then I would date him. I would appreciate his trust in me and his willingness to open up and confide in me about it. His candor would draw me closer to him. I value people's honesty , especially when I know they aren't obliged to disclose anything to me , and when I know it's not easy for them to talk about something which causes them so much pain.1
