Whatever you do, don't try it. At 17, the real things in life haven't even started much. I remember when I was 17, life sucked! High school was some of the toughest years to get through. Put on a tough outer shell, get thru high school. You've only got a year or two more to go (you can't get anything you want out of life without it), and then aim for what makes you happy. If you're depressed, you probably are forcing yourself to live the type of life that makes you unhappy. So what should you do? Keep making changes until you find something that does make you happy. 99% of the time, depression is not caused by you and what's in your head (as most psychiatrists would make you believe - and that makes you even more depressed.) Depression is caused by your surroundings and the kind of life you're forcing yourself to live. When you're depressed, your body is trying to tell you something. Do what makes you happy.
