Ive been tired everyday for the past 2 years now. I dont know what it is but im constantly sleepy. My eyes keep shutting in school and im constantly yawning even though i get enough sleep. My mental health isnt good but is this normal or what. I usually sleep for 16 hours in the holidays bc i cant get up. What should i do?

Do you have a regular sleeping pattern? Highly recommend you do so if not. And make sure it's not too little hours of sleep and not too many (16 is too many and will make your body think it should go into a mini hibernation state)

Is your sleep broken? If your sleep is broken (you wake up during the night for no 'good' reason), then it would be worth trying to help out your mental health as it could be a cause for this

Take care

Doctor.

It could be just because you’re a teenager, but 16 hours is way too much.

You might have ME, chronic sleep. It could be vitamin deficiency, iron and vitamin D are two that come to mind with tiredness. Maybe not enough exercise/sedentary lifestyle.

But you won’t know until you get medical advice.

I never wake up in the middle of my sleep. I sleep for around 6-8 hours on weekdays and sometimes weekends.

That is your answer. You are anemic. That is what makes you tired all the time. Go see your GP. In the meantime, increase your iron intake to a normal level (some foods you can eat or snack on now that are high in iron: spinach, peanuts, potatoes, spaghetti. Try making yourself a spinach salad everyday and see if that helps.) It's already been 2 years, I'm not sure why you didn't go see a doctor before. This is serious.
