Will seeking treatment for anxiety and depression make my health insurance less affordable/available in the future?

My student insurance will be ending in the next six months, and after that I will probably purchase an individual policy. I don't anticipate finding a job that would give me access to a group plan.
If i am diagnosed with or treated for depression and/or anxiety, should I be concerned about insurance being less available or more expensive, and, if so, what are reasonable steps to take? I'm more interested in empirical data and information about relevant laws and health insurance company policies than anecdotes, but don't let that stop you.
I'm in the United States.
