It's most obviously a metaphor for mental illness itself (Co-Director Jennifer Lee answered a tweet saying it was meant to show anxiety and depression*)
Since when are anxiety and depression necessarily signs of mental illness? I daresay many people go through both without being mentally ill.
Since Anxiety and Depression are classified mental illnesses? Lee even brings up Hans Christian Anderson as an example. But sure, they can refer to emotions too, and it is just a metaphor since, you know, Ice powers.
