How do I go about getting medicated for mental illness as an 18 year old on my parent’s health insurance without them finding out?

I’ve recently turned 18 and have diagnosed depression, anxiety, and PTSD and want to explore the possibility of medication, but my parents are very anti-mental healthcare (took them 7 years to take me to a therapist despite the instructions of my school to do so). I’m a college student who is away from home during the school year, but I’m still on my parent’s health insurance. How do I go about seeing a doctor or psychiatrist to consider the possibility of medication with out my parent’s finding out?

(also disclaimer: I know medication is not a quick fix and I’ve been trying as hard as I can to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to naturally manage my mental health. I just want to talk with a professional and see if it could possibly help my quality of life.)
