Where would you go to get diagnosed with depression, anxiety and adhd? A GP, psychologist? And how much would it cost? I’m 16 so would I need to take an adult with me as well?
I hope this makes sense, thank you

GP.

In terms of anxiety it is common for a GP to say even to someone over 18 has anxiety, but not make a formal specific diagnosis. Often people want specific diagnoses though e.g. GAD, PTSD, OCD, Panic disorder etc. Depression GPs are comfortable saying.

In terms of specific anxiety diagnoses sometimes people chase them for months or years hoping it will give them understanding or extra help. Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't. Good luck.

GP would be first port of call and then they would be able to refer you, if necessary, to the right mental health team. You don't need to be accompanied by an adult to visit your GP/the hospital etc.

Im 17. i talked to adults i felt comfortable with at college... well technically they kinda pushed me on the subject. however all they think is that i get anxiety panic attacks but sometimes now more than before i fell like going to sleep and not waking. im suposed to have my first session in the first week of sept with a counsellor to chat about my life. not sure it will help i mean not even my family know i feel like this.
