What's the easiest way to tell my parents about my deteriorating mental health?

I don't know what your country has to offer, but perhaps you can find a therapist online or one that is cheaper?
And maybe when you talk to your parents, don't be explicit. Maybe say something along the lines of "I've been really struggling with x lately and I've been trying a, b, and c to help with it but I really think I need to speak with a professional to learn other ways to deal with it. It's really impacting my ability to function."
Perhaps though, if one parent is more empathetic/sympathetic you should talk to them alone first.
I'll try this out once I have the guts to do so. I've tried online therapy but it really wasn't helpful at all :(
