    Thank you for reaching out to us and telling us your story. It sounds like you are going through a very difficult time right now and we hope to be able to help you out. Unfortunately, we are located in the United States but we may be able to help you find some resources located in India.

    We are sorry to hear that your aunt says mean things to you that make you cry. Nobody deserves to feel unsafe or afraid in their home. We are also sorry to hear that your dad passed when you were young. Can you tell us more about why you are currently living with your aunt?

    You also mentioned that you had tried suicide several times and feel that you have nobody to talk with. Are there any trusted adults in your life (teachers, friends parents, etc..) that you feel comfortable talking with? We were able to locate an agency in India called Childline India Foundation; you can call them by dialing 1098 but they also have a website (www.childlineindia.org.in) that you can look at as well.

    Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if you need more resources. We have chat services available from 4:30 PM-11:30 PM (CST) through our website if you would like to talk with someone that way instead.

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!

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

        I wanna run away from home. Please help.

        Hello,
        Thank you for posting to the National Runaway Safeline bulletin board.
        We are sorry to hear about your situation.
        We understand how hard divorce can be on the children involved it sounds like it has been very emotional for you.
        Were able to talk about your feelings with anyone?
        Counseling has been one option that many children of divorce have considered or tried.
        It may be a way to establish better communication methods between you and your mom.
        Does that sound like something you might want to try?

        Sometimes people just want someone to listen; they want to be able to express their feelings.
        Good for you reaching out to do just that.

        It sounds like you are considering leaving home but do have a plan as to where you will go?
        Your safety is very important and while one can understand about needing some time to think or just get away for a while it’s a good idea to of a sense about staying safe.
        Does that make sense?

        We are available 24hrs a day and you can call our toll free crisis line at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) to discuss some possible options such a safe place or counseling services.

        You can also reach us by visiting our website and joining in on our live chat service available from 4:30pm until 11:30pm (CST) 7 days a week at: www.1800Runaway.org or contact us via our email address [email protected]

        We appreciate the fact that you reached out to NRS and want to assure you that we have an open ear with confidentiality and you may call anonymous.
        Take care

                I wanna run away

                I'm 13 years old and I'm being bullied verbally in school. The school doesn't really help me. All they said was to ignore the rumors...I don't want to tell my dad what's going on...I just want to run away...please help me.

                  re: I wanna run away

                  Hi there,

                  Thanks for reaching out tonight and sharing your story with us. It sounds like you are going through a lot at school. You do not deserve to be treated that way by people at your school. We can imagine that it is very hard situation to not be listened to by your school. You deserve to have your voice heard. So let’s see how we can help you out tonight.

                  It was very brave of you to reach out for some guidance tonight. Who else have you talked to about this besides us and your school? Sometimes when we are facing things like verbal abuse and bullying, it is helpful to get support around us. Who else can you think of that might be able to support you? It’s not easy reaching out for help, but it sounds like you know how to do it (you reached out to us!).

                  There are some websites that might be helpful to you:
                  www.stopbullying.gov
                  www.netsmartz.org
                  www.paceer.org/bullying
                  They can talk through with you ways to try and stop the bullying and the resources that are available to you in your school.

                  We are here to talk with if you decide to run. Making sure that you are safe if you decide to leave is our number one concern. So if you decide to leave, please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) and we can talk through options with you.

                  We wish you the best of luck and look forward to your call,

                          RE: Runaway

                          Hi there,

                          Thank you for reaching out to us here at NRS. It was very brave of you to share your story. It sounds like living at home is tough for you. We're sorry to hear that you get hit at home; no one deserves to be hit by family.

                          It sounds like you want to run away to the United States. How would you get here? If you do come to the US, where would you stay? Do you know anyone in the United States? How can you be safe, whether at home or elsewhere? These are all some questions to consider. Unfortunately, our database mainly has resources for the United States; however, I did find a helpline in India. That number is 2549 7777.

                          If you'd like to talk further about all of this, you can call us anytime at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We're available 24/7 on our safeline. You can also chat with us from 4:30 to 11:30 pm Central time by going to www.1800runaway.org and clicking the red live chat button.

                          Best of luck with your Olympics dreams and more,

                              Re: I want to run away

                              Hey,

                              Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you have been having a hard time lately and we are here to help you out the best that we can.

                              You said that you are afraid of your dad because he is aggressive. That must be a difficult thing to deal with. You deserve to feel safe at home. Have you ever talked to him about the way that he’s been making you feel? If you haven’t talked to your dad, have you talked to anyone else in your family about it? One thing we offer here at NRS is conference calling. That means if you were to call into our hotline at 1 800 RUNAWAY, we could make a call out to your dad with you on the line with us, so that we could mediate a conversation between the two of you. This would be an opportunity to let him know how you’ve been feeling with a third party on the line to make sure that the conversation is productive and fair.

                              You mentioned that you often have suicidal thoughts. We want to give you the National Suicide Hotline that you can call any time (or us, too) that you are having such thoughts: 1 800 273 TALK (8255). When you think about committing suicide, what is it that brings you out of thinking this? Do you talk to any close friends or family about it, or practice a hobby that is helpful, like writing or something of that sort? This can be a hard thing to cope with, but we are glad to know that you are reaching out for help to deal with this.

                              You said that you often think about running away as well. We do not give advice here, we will not tell you to run away or stay at home, because you know your situation better than we do. Our priority is always safety, so we want to make sure that whatever choice that you make, you are safe in doing so. With that in mind, there are a few things that might be helpful to think about before leaving your home, if you do decide to do so:

                              What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
                              What would make me stay at home?
                              How will I survive?
                              Is running away safe?
                              Who can I count on to help me?
                              Have I given this enough thought?
                              What are my other options?
                              If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
                              When I return home, what will happen?

                              If you need any other information, resources, or just simply want to talk more we are here to support you the best that we can. Our 24/7 hotline, 1 800 RUNAWAY is anonymous and confidential. We also have a chat option available from 4:30pm to 11:30pm CST if you prefer to talk online.

                              We wish you the best of luck with everything and hope to hear from you again soon.

                              Stay safe,
