    Hey there,

    Thank you for being able to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline, it seems like you are going through a pretty tough time at this point in your life and we are happy that you are able to come to us for help. If at any time you feel unsafe, you are always allowed to call 911 and ask for assistance.

    From what you shared, it seems like there might be some minor abuse in your home, if you are interested in potentially filing a report, you can contact the Child Help USA hotline at 1-800-422-4453, and they would be able to give you more information regarding filing a report and how to go about your situation.

    No one ever deserves to be hit or mistreated the way you have. Have you considered talking to anyone about the situation? Perhaps that is something you can consider, sometimes talking to someone and being able to discuss these situations with another person can help you explore some options and make you think of things you haven’t before.

    We are also here to listen and help. If you are ever feeling like you have no one to support you or are having suicidal thoughts, you can contact either the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK or you can contact us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We both are open 24/7 and would be more than happy to help you explore your options. We wish you the best with whatever it is you decide to do.

    Stay Strong,
