    I don't want this to sound dismissive in any way but are you sure you have depression? Is it just that you can't get out of bed or are there other issues you haven't written about here? Just as you have seen a lot of doctors etc so perhaps the issue is something else. I am unsure why you need behavioural issues to be referred to CAMHS, unless they mean things such as self harm or struggling to manage day to day situations somehow? It's hard to know.

    Sorry, I am not sure I am being much use to you. You may be able to get counselling or other support from some sort of charity in your area or self refer to certain services. Try and google "Mental health support in [insert your area]" or "Free counselling in [your area]". There are obviously a few things you can do for yourself such as exercise, eating healthily, getting the right amount of sleep, writing down your feelings and other stuff like that.

    Hope this helps in some way

    There are other things too, but the not being able to get out of bed is causing the most trouble since my school attendance is dropping as a result.
    My sister had a symptom thing from the docs and I experience almost all of them...
    Thank you for the advice, I'm currently trying to get the courage to talk to the only teacher I actually trust at my school.
