In brief: NOT useless

A therapist would be USEFUL to you if you're frequently thinking of death.
Yes, this could be symptoms of depression. Please talk to your parents, a therapist, your doctor, a school counselor, a pastor, etc. Help is available.

In brief: Not necessarily

but worth a consultation with a psychiatrist because indeed you may be suffering from major depression, which can be treated with psychotherapy or medication.
Most worries have no answers - and that is exactly the kind of problem that psychotherapy is designed to help with.
