How does discharge in the Army work in terms of depression and anxiety?

This sounds like a complex situation and you should speak with a military law attorney or a legal assistance attorney. You could be administratively separated with a derogatory discharge and lose benefits. You could also receive administrative punishment. In addition, as you point out, you may also negatively affect fellow Soldiers and the mission.

I agree you're likely to get discharged for fraudulent enlistment by misrepresenting your mental health history. You need to get to a behavioral health specialist ASAP and resume your medication. Then you should seek advice from a defense counsel.

You're probably looking at a discharge for fraudulent enlistment, rather than a discharge for your psychiatric condition. If you're having mental health issues, you should be seek treatment and stop lying.
