Unhappy Lost my spirituality

Hi my name is Emily and I'm really not happy with my life. Nothing has really happened to me but I have diagnosed depression, anxiety, and bipolar. To be happy, I feel as if I need to get outside of myself.
When I was fifteen, I was sent to a wilderness camp in Utah where we lived off of the land and learned much about native american culture, even having our own versions of some of their ceremonies occasionally. When I went I was too bitter about being sent off to really appreciate the experience and too upset about hiking to learn anything. In short, I regret not fully taking part in the camp.
Since then I have lost my spirituality. I'm confused and I'm not sure What I believe anymore. I want to dive into rich, spiritual culture as a kind of self-medication. I need to connect with something again to feel, well anything. I guess my question is, is it possible for a non- native person to visit a reservation for a while as a sort of self-exploration? If not do you know of anything similar where I could immerse myself into something bigger than me? Any help you can give would be great! Thank you so much for your help!
