If you had a history of depression before you entered the Army, you should have mentioned it to MEPS.
If you did not, and they find out (and they will because you had this happen), you will likely be charged for Fraudulent Enlistment under Article 83, UCMJ. This will result in a fine, reduction in rank (if you are not already an E-1), extra duty, and a General, Under Other Than Honorable Conditions Discharge, which will affect you the rest of your life.
If you did mention this to MEPS, and they let you in anyway, they will likely discharge you as an Entry Level Separation.
Either way, it will take several weeks or months for it to go through, and it won't be painless. You will get all the crappy details that need to be done, such as CQ runner, dedicated lawn-mower, chow hall head-counter, etc.
