Getting treated for depression without parents finding out?

My parents both work in the medical field and seem to have a difficulty
in accepting anything being wrong with their kids. I suffer from what I believe are symptoms of depression; constant fatigue, I oversleep without feeling rested, I have no joy in doing what I liked to do, and I constantly think about dying (not suicidally though). I've tried talking to my family to get help and they told me that no one in the family has ever had depression and that because I sleep so much I must just be lazy.

So I ask you the anonymous community is there any affordable way I can get treated for depression without my family finding out? They control my medical insurance so I can't use that to help pay for treatment , and I don't have enough money to get my own insurance or pay for expensive treatments. Please help me!

  • Does no one have any ideas? Because of my parents income would I even be eligible for something like a free health clinic or do free health clinics even deal with depression?
