hey Revz! welcome to ADDF!

ADHD and depression tend to go hand in hand, so you're not really off topic.
I think the best way would probably to sit down and either print out the post you wrote (above) or just sit them down and explain to them how you've been feeling and tell them you'd like to see a psychiatrist for depression.

Do you already see a psychiatrist for ADHD? if so, then you could make an appointment sooner than later and talk with your psychiatrist about it.

Either way, you should tell them. Depression isn't fun to deal with and you should get help ASAP.

feel free to PM me anytime, Revz

Be blunt about it, most parents are suprisingly understanding.
