You must be quite young. The economy runs in cycles, I've been here before.
the late 70's were a bitch...and we survived.
I find comfort in knowing that when it comes down to survival of the fittest, I'm out. I'm so far from the fittest LOL. Until then I keep hanging on. So far anyway. I suspect suicide isn't in my nature. If it were I'd not have survived last winter.
Get out of that house!

If this situation is as bag as it 'feels' from your post-alcoholic father with psych issues as caregiver when your mother leaves, you're made to feel both like a burden and an 'anchor', I wonder if a call to the local Adult Protective services might be a good idea. You need some outside emotional support AND logistical help to live independently. That home situation sounds so dark and depressed I'm certain it looks to you like it's hopeless.
Was/is there a social worker wherever you were treated? Call your local center of independent living. Call the local vocational rehab place and ask for an appointment. Is there a doctor or nurse that you get along with??--call them and explain the situation. Make these people aware of your situation so you get some outside support.
I wonder (maybe this is an awful idea?? ya'all help me out here) but is it possible that you might be better off getting out of the home situation by going into a nursing home and then transitioning to independent living???
I think you need to get some support from 'adults' other than your parents because they sound like their living/coping/emotional skills are pretty thin.
Am hoping other member chime in with who to call/how to get help type advice.
There's help out there but you'll have to talk to people and be very candid that your home/life situation is so emotionally abusive/potentially neglectful that it's causing you to very seriously consider suicide.

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night, the night..
