Depression in University/College: most of you seem to have been through it, do you have any tips?

According to my research, about 90% of Mefites suffered from depression while they were in university 
. You gave me some amazing advice in my previous question
about taking a year out from my course, and I'm happy to say I feel like I'm mostly out of the woods now and ready to start second year again in September.
However, as someone who's fairly prone to depression, I'm a little apprehensive about trying to keep up with my work, socialising and looking after myself (when I don't have my mum on hand to feed me!).
I've read this question
on a similar topic, but I'm looking for general advice and tips on how to depression-proof my time at university, and how to do well academically without driving myself absolutely potty. What do you think, Hive Mind?
