    Hi there,

    You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your mom’s permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your mom. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Be safe,

    NRS

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on.

If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    Hi. Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing part of your story with us.

    It sounds like you’re experiencing some very challenging situations that may have been triggered from your home life. Swollen eyes and busted lips sounds like abuse and this information can be reported to CPS. If you need support or help doing this please do not hesitate to give us a call at any time. Abuse of any kind is terrible and can be a traumatic experience and we want you to know that you don’t deserve that. It can be heartbreaking to know that when you are in need of support that your own mother isn’t there to offer you that support. It’s understandable why you would feel tired and ready to leave. It may be important information to know that because you are still a minor if your mother kicks you out the house this is also considered neglect and something you can also report to CPS.

    If you are in need of any shelter resources or need any additional emotional support please feel free to reach back out to us via phone at 1800-runaway or come chat with us at 1800runaway.org.

    So the other night I snuck out ... I know supid I was doing soooo good but I'm a teen I'm going to ******** up sometimes . Me and the guy ya know was chilling so we started to have sex .. I guess someone called the cops ... And they put it in as a suspicious vehicle so the cops came and mind you I'm a minor he isn't . So hours passed my mom came and she's calling me a slut , a whore asked me did he pay me and that I'm dumb and she wants me to runaway so I'm tired of the ******** fr fr I'm bouta just walk out .. I can't call DCF , I can't call CPS . Even though it has been times where she has giving me a swollen eye , busted up lip , knots on my head .. she took my phone away . At school the other day I had a anxiety attack so I was saying I wanna kill myself so they called a Suicide Hotline out to the school . When they called her she said oh I'm being extra and that she can't pick me up .. soon as I got home from school she said oh you don't have to run away you can just leave and never come back . I'm so tired of living this way

    Hi. Thank you for reaching out to us. We’re sorry to hear you’re living in such a difficult situation. It’s hard having a parent that doesn’t provide a warm, welcoming environment for you and who unfairly takes things out on you.
    It’s easy to feel isolated in that type of situation and that there’s nobody you can turn to. Running away can be hard and it can be helpful to think about where you might stay and how you might pay for food, rent and other living expenses.
    You did the right thing by reaching out. We’re here and ready to listen 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or via chat at 1800runaway.org. We can talk more about your living situation, ways we can help and discuss any options that may be available for you. Any of our hotline operators will be more than happy to speak to you.
    Please contact us when you’re ready. You shouldn’t have to feel that way in your own home. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and wish you the best in the meantime.

    I wanna run away so bad. My mom always finds a way to get mad at me and I don't have any siblings who can take the heat off of me. Somehow everything is my fault and I ruined her life. She has told me since I was little that she hates kids. I don't know what to do. I wanna have a good life and go to school and everything but I don't know how much I can take of this

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us, since we know how difficult that can be. It takes a brave person to ask for help, and we're glad you did.

    You must be going through a lot with family to be thinking about running away. You mentioned you ran away a week ago, and we hope you're in a safe spot right now. We would be happy to talk with you more about your family issues and can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-786-2929. If you need a local shelter we can help with that also. We can talk about what's going on at home and some options. If you have other family to talk to, that might be helpful, or a school counselor also. Taking your mind off what's going on at home can help a lot too, with things like music, movies, and sports.

    In terms of leaving for Los Angeles, we aren't legal experts here, but if you do leave home as a minor, while it's not illegal in most states it is considered a status offense and you could be returned home. It sounds like you're thinking through where you would stay which is important, since we want you to be safe. Some other things you would want to think about are school, if you're still in school, and maybe things you could do at home to make things better.

    If you call into our crisis center at the number I mentioned, we could give you some shelter options in Los Angeles if that is the route you're thinking of going. Just keep in mind with staying in a shelter, many only allow you to stay a couple days if they know you have a family and home, but again we don't know your exact situation at home.

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us. It sounds very frustrating to be blamed for things that aren’t your fault. It takes a lot of strength and courage to reach out and share the way you feel. We’re here to support you in any way that we can.

    You said that you having been considering suicide, we care a great deal about your safety and think it might be a good idea to reach out to some other agencies for additional support. Handling suicidal thoughts on your own can be hard, and you don’t have to deal with this by yourself; you can always reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or go to their website at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org if. If you’re interested in learning more about mental health or want to talk with someone to explore some of the feelings you’ve been experiencing you can talk to someone from the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) at 1-800-950-NAMI or online at www.nami.org.

    It would be a good idea to think about options that may be available to you. You could think about reaching out to a teacher or a school counselor. It sounds like you care a lot about your family; maybe you’d feel comfortable talking to a family member about all this. If you’d like to go into more depth about this all or have someone to brainstorm ideas with you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat us by going to our website www.1800runaway.org. We’re 24/7, toll-free, and we’re always here to listen and to help.

    I’m 15 and I wanna run away. I’ve did it before but this time I wanna be gone for a few days. My mom and siblings stay with my aunt because we got evicted out of my house and I just hate living here. I hate the condition it’s in and I always get in trouble and cursed out. My mom told my aunt that I need to see a therapist and my aunt was like I don’t need to see a therapist I just need a good old fashion whooping. Every time I get on the phone with my boyfriend my aunt always say I needa get off the phone and do something productive with myself. They should make a place for teens who wanna clear there minds and get away. If I get in trouble or yelled at again I’m picking my things and leaving. Any suggestions on where to go?
