I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2014 with a 2.2 degree in Economics & Finance. I was struggling with un-treated depression during my honors years but I am currently seeking help for it now and on the road to recovery.
Feeling better, I would love to pursue a Master's in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or Financial Mathematics. (I have been working as an analyst for a government agency and I am currently a data analyst for Thomson Reuters with experience in business and statistical modelling).
My question is: With my background, what are my chances of getting into a master's program at a decent university in the fields I mentioned (statistics, data science, applied mathematics, financial mathematics) ?

What do you mean with your depression background, or your grade ?
I feel as though you can get into a really good university, you'd have to look a little harder for those who accept 2.2s. Though personally I would not do a full time course whilst dealing with depression. I only say the latter because I got into my masters with a 2.2 (full time), currently I have finished the taught part of the course but the work load was really really stressful (often accompanied by crying). I was having deadlines every week or every other week in comparison to my peers doing part time.
