Im 17 in sixth form

For a while recently I’ve been feeling very depressed and I need help but don’t know what to do.
Talking to my parents is out of the question.

I’m having lots of issues:

Struggle speaking to girls
Struggle making friends
I’m very shy
I hate my part time job
I find no motivation to revise for school
I’m always tired
I have terrible health anxiety
I have adult video addiction

I cannot talk to my parents it’s just not possible I can’t talk to them about stuff like that.

I don’t know what to do should I talk to a doctor or school counsellor

A therapist seems a good option but I wouldn’t even know where to start

I think doctor or a school counsellor is a really good place to start. Maybe go chat with your school nurse if you have one. They may be able to connect you with school counselling services or help you arrange to have a phone appointment with your doctor at school (to avoid your parents hearing). You could self-refer to CAMHS, but they can be quite oversubscribed, and as far as I know, if you are not ‘urgent’ when deciding to see you they take into account whether you have engaged with school services (ie if you have and it hasn’t worked you are more likely to be seen). There are also crisis lines you can ring, such as the Samaritans or Childline. This website: https://www.blurtitout.org/ is super useful. It has lots of information on depression, it helps you to understand it more.
I hope this helps, you are doing the right thing by trying to reach out, and I promise this will get better. :console:

First, stop watching adult videos.

Second, ring your GP and book an appointment. Ask them whether they can refer to you to a counsellor.

Third, look for female friends.

- Depression - Take Vitamin D supplements everyday, eat more protein. Small, basic changes helped me too.
- Girls - Seems like partial social anxiety, email your tutor or something, it'll definitely help, I've been through this.
- Quit your job. It's for the best.
- No Motivation? Ask your Tutor to assign you a time for revision, revising at home may not be for you.
- Healthy Anxiety - GP speak to him/her.
- Adult video addiction - This one is difficult, the best you can do is an alternative, quitting is not viable and the success rate is very low. Watch twerking videos on YouTube, they'll do fine. If you're really desparate, go back to adult videos, but then go back to YouTube. You don't feel as bad after ejaculating too.

I would start with Childline at this point, perhaps making an appointment with your GP later on.
