So i am half a term in and doing really well in maths and further maths, however I my school it is compulsory to take Mechanics. I personally take more time to learn things and need them explain more thoroughly, unfortunately, my teacher talks at 100 miles per hour and I get lost instantly. I am really struggling and cant do any of the work and it's leaving me in tears. Any suggest youtube channels or revision guides/ walkthroughs I could use? Any advice would be LOVED.

Well with Maths and Further Maths, you're pretty much doing every module for Year 12 and 13 (I'm doing Edexcel so it may vary with you). If you're doing Physics then Mechanics definitely comes in handy. To be honest, I'll admit Mechanics can be difficult but if you really understand what you're doing and why you're doing it then everything slowly comes together, it's same with your pure maths stuff.
Solution Bank if you're doing Edexcel and using their text books.
To be frank with you, I only use exam solutions and solution bank.

Go through the exam solutions tutorials and make some brief notes if you want. Then start doing a few papers and see where your going wrong. I'd save the more recent papers for revision and instead do Soloman/IYGB papers to give you a good understanding.

With edexcel I find it useful to do all of the textbook questions after going through the examples and then do the "questions by topic" on physicsandmathstutor. You can use solution bank for step by step solutions to textbook questions if you're stuck.
