  • Thoughts about running

    Hello, I am a 16 year old girl who is having trouble in my home and really, really have been thinking about running away. My mother, my two brothers, and now recently my father have been tormenting me psychologically and emotionally enough to make me feel really unwanted. I live in a bad neighborhood as well, and I feel really trapped here. I really want to run away, and with how sensitive I am, I've been close to taking my own life. I been shown this site from a friend, and I really could use the help, please. I can't really take it anymore. Can you please tell me what I can do?

    We're glad you contacted the National Runaway Safeline. If you're in immediate danger or feel like you are going to harm yourself please call 911.

    No one deserves abuse and it is not your fault. Have you told anyone else about what's been going on? It can be helpful to talk through these things with a friend, adult, or counselor at school before trying to make any big decisions. If you still feel like you want to take your own life, you might try calling the National Suicide Hotline 1(800)273-TALK.

    If you still want to runaway, have you thought about where you would go? We're here at the National Runaway Safeline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1(800)RUNAWAY and happy to talk with you about your plan and options available.

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