I've always had really acne-prone skin but this time it's too much. Any advice?

I wouldn't think depression would, but it's quite commonly known that stress can. Perhaps it could be some stress that is making you depressed and also breakout?
It's really hard to know exactly, but I guess you'd be best just trying to relax, meditate, drink plenty of water etc. The worst part about pimples is people tend to stress out when they get them, which in turn causes more breakouts. Try and break that cycle.
If it gets bad, try going to the doctors and seek treatment. There are antibiotics like minocycline which can work quite well.2

There are a lot of factors why you could be breaking out. Stress plays a big part in the health and wellness of your body. However, you said that you've never had acne this bad so maybe its stress combini with something else. What have you been eating and drinking lately? if you've been intaking a lot of dairy products this could be the cause of such bad acne. Dairy contains growth hormones that when mixed with naturally produced testosterone it creates inflammation that causes acne.1
