I have anxiety and OCD and have previously had depression but I don't know what to do because my mum knows about my anxiety and OCD but I don't like speaking to her about it because she's always busy or I know she won't listen or do anything if I do tell her. Sometimes it's really bad and I want to get it sorted or doing something about it at the doctors but I know if I tell her she won't do anything.

You can go to the doctors by yourself and if you are 16 or over you should be able to sort everything out without your mum.
Either just say you want to go to the drs (it doesn't really matter how much attention she pays as long as she takes you) or go by yourself.

I agree with the previous post, you should go to the doctors for advice They should be able to refer you for therapy if that is the best option.

You don't have to tell your mum why, but if she asks you can either be direct, or say it's for symptoms that you get (heart rate, aches, anything persistent). Or take yourself if you are able to. If it's affecting you, you deserve to get yourself sorted.
