Hi there, if I ring a uni and inform them of the depression and anxiety I dealt with this academic year, are they likely to be more lenient with their offer?

I would not advice ringing them solely referring to your depression/anxiety. Personally I would put in your personal statement, "despite the difficult circumstances I achieved (enter extra-curricular achievement) " then at the interview you may be given the opportunity to elaborate. You do not want to dwell on this to much however as personal statements are all about being positive and expressing your love for the subject.
Hope this helped,

On your UCAS form; it has an option to declare any disabilities and depression/anxiety will come under mental health. The universites can see this and can make a lower offer.
