    re: Please Help Me

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting the National Runway Safeline. It sounds like you are going through a tough situation. Suicide is a very serious issue and if you feel like you want to harm your self, we encourage you to call the National Suicide hotline at 1800-566-8255 right away.

    No one deserves to feel judged or harassed. Child custody is a difficult process for any family to go through, and you are not to blame for the courts decisions. It sounds like you have a strong relationship with your mother and it is great to hear that she makes you feel happy and confident. We can help you look for options that may be available to you. We are not legal experts however emancipation is usually for youth that are 15 years old and up. We can work on looking up some legal aid in your area that might help with the custody issues that you are going through, you might be able to discuss with a lawyer what is going on and how your mom can get custody. We encourage you to call us at 1-800-786-2929 so that we can help you with what is going on. Or if calling isn't your thing, you can chat with us through our website ( from 4.30pm-11.30pm Central Time.

    We look forward to your call or chat.

    Thank you and good luck,

    I just got out of a Residential Treatment Facility. I was in a hospital for three months, and the RTF for three. I originally ran away six months ago, and I ended up in a hospital because I wanted to kill myself. I still do, been though I've been through six months of "therapy." (Aka judgement, harassment, being guilted) The reason why I wan to kill myself is because my father has custody, and all I wantis my mom to have custody. No one understands because my dad basically lives the "American Dream." Big house, a wife, three kids, good schools. But when I'm with my mom, I feel so much happier and confident and more like myself. My mom tried for custody back in August, but the judge was biased, so she didn't win. She was also blamed for all of MY mistakes. I want to run away, but if I do, I'll just be sent back to my dad's. If I say I want to kill myself, I'll be sent to a hospital, which will only trigger my suicidal feelings. An RTF obviously didn't help, and all I want is to be with my mom. If I go to her house, the courts will think she planned my running away. I don't know what to do. If I stay at my dad's, I'll be miserable. If I run away, I'll be sent to my dad's. If I'm sent to a hospital, I will be triggered. I jut want an attorney of my own, and if my mom can't get custody, I want to be emancipated. Problem is, I'm only 12. I feel stuck. Please help me.
