My parents aren't allowing me to get treatment for my severe anxiety and depression. What should I do?

I am 17 and suffer from severe anxiety and depression due to my parents and the trauma they've made me endure, but they refuse to let me get any type of treatment; via therapy, medication, etc. What can I do?

Update:

    You're 17, make your own doctors appointment. As long as the doctor believes you have capacity to consent to treatment they won't tell your parents.
