    Thank you for reaching out to us for support. It sounds like you are dealing with a lot right now. You do not deserve the way you are threated at home. It sounds frustrating to always be compared to what your brother is doing and how it affects the way you feel like to come down to what they expect from the both of you. Is there a relative you are comfortable with staying? It is not your fault for how things are at home. Have you thought of going elsewhere to cool off? We have resources that may be helpful to you locally to get a change of scene. These agencies can help you with counseling if you so choose and might be able to figure out family crisis with you and family at home.

    We are a 24 hours a day crisis hotline that is able to locate resources and provide emotional support. We hope that we are able to get a direct call from you over the phone to speak with one of our liners to get help. We are confidential and anonymous. Please tell us how we can help more. We can be reached at 1800RUNAWAY. Good luck.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
