    Maybe catch them at the end of a lesson, in their office, or a classroom perhaps and ask them for help with your problem, and then tell them about it. I think I would ask them if I could speak to them at a certain time during lunch or similar. Maybe tell her that you want to speak somewhere more quiet. Before you do it, maybe it would be helpful to write a little list of bullet points of the things you know you want to say?

    I know you'll be fine, keep us updated!

    Have you thought about writing a note and giving it to her, or sending her an email? When I had to tell my parents about mental health stuff I did it in the form of a letter because that way I was able to make sure I said everything I wanted to say, instead of getting scared or flustered when talking and not saying what I wanted to.

    Well done for deciding to tell someone though, hopefully they'll be able to support you :hugs:

    I think first to tell your parents about your depression they will know you better than your teacher. So just tell your parents about your problem so you can rid from depression soon.
