Just try to be straight up with them. Tell them pretty much exactly what you told us. Explain what's been going on with your life and tell them that you think you know what's best for yourself. Or if you're too nervous to face them maybe write it in a note. If you don't think they'd understand maybe go to that teacher and explain it to them and maybe they'll agree and talk to your parents for you. Parents usually listen better when it's coming from another adult.

First off, you may really need to tell your family whats been going on. I know itll be hard but its a step closer to recovery. Tell your mother to take you to the ER because youve been self harming and having suicidal thoughts..(at least thats what my mom did) from there theyll give you a psychiatric evaluation which is when they decide whether you are a really danger to yourself or not. From what youve said, you are so from there youll be sent to a mental hospital. Also, at school you can tell a teacher how youve been feeling and they may call your parents and tell them to take you to the ER which is where they same process would happen. I hope this bit of info helped and I hope you get better, I know how you feel. Good luck!
