I think many kids and parents underestimate the power of "fit" into the college decision.
Based on what was written in the original post, it sounds more like the HYP school was not a good fit, rather than anything related to depression or something you'd see a psychologist about.
Was very active and involved including cheerleading for football and basketball, multiple plays/musicals/productions, and easy paid work which allowed studying with a great hourly pay rate. Kept a GPA at around 3.8.
