      Hi there,
      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. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. 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. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. 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.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.

  • I'm 13 and want to live a better life

    I've had a rough life. My dad is a pothead and my mom is not alive anymore. My dad mentally abused me and physically abused my mom. I moved in with my grandmother but....lifes not as easy as you would think. I love her so much...but she doesn't completely know me. I am pansexual, but shes very homophobic and very religious. I know she will never except me for who I really am, and she talks about how it's a sin all the time. My freinds guardians are also this way, I have no clue what I should do but I cant live like this forever. I want to just be free from being scared. I want to be okay. But I cant when everyone around me will hate the true me. I found out I was pan when I was 9 and have felt this way ever since. What should I do?

      Hi there,

      Thanks for taking the time to write us here at NRS. It can certainly be stressful at home when the adults in the household are not supportive. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you with figuring out your next steps in this difficult situation. Asking for help was really responsible and smart of you. We are sorry to hear things are so unstable at home. You deserve to live somewhere that makes you feel safe and supported.

      It must be stressful to feel like your family member are not understanding and do not support who you are. It can be incredibly challenging to feel as if you need to bottle up your feelings and restrict your self-expression. This is unfair to you and you deserve to be getting support as you cope with the situation at home.

      The Trevor Project is available to help young people who identify within the LGBTQ who are in crisis and need a judgement free space to talk about what is going on (www.thetrevorproject.org ; 1-866-488-7386).This might be a helpful resource to you as you navigate this challenging situation. Sometimes having a safe place to talk about things can lead you to brainstorm ideas you hadn't thought of previously.

      Additionally, we are available 24/7 to help by phone (1-800-786-2929) and online chat service. We want to offer support during this difficult situation and help you figure out what you want your next steps to be. Do not hesitate to reach out any time so that we can better help you.

  • I live with my grandma to. And I hate it. I'm not in the exact same situation as you but my grandma is abusive and I don't have proof so I can't go to anyone. I have a friend who's family said they would love to take me in I asked my grandma but she just acts like it's a phase but I have felt this way for a while but never knew how to talk to her about it. Today she punched me and slapped me but I have no marks to prove it. I want to live with my friend and her family but I'm afraid I'm a minor so they won't believe me. And my mom is mental do they would also have the beleif that I am also mental. I don't know what to do or who to call. She always says she's going to call someone to arrange something then calls her friends and talks about how horrible of a child I am. I. Hate. My. Life. I don't know who to call. My grandma favors my 2 sisters. I don't know who to call that would believe me. Help?

      Hi,

      Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We understand it takes a lot of strength to share your story. We are very sorry to hear that your grandma is abusive, but it is good to hear that you do have a safe place to go. If you were to go live with your friend, your grandma could file a runaway report if she is your legal guardian, so you would be considered a runaway.

      This is only a status offense, meaning it would disappear from you record when you turn 18. It also means that the police could look for you, and if you were found you would be returned home to your grandma. Additionally, your friend’s parents could get in trouble for harboring a runaway, but only if they tried to stop the police. However, police do not typically look for runaway youth, but you could certainly give your local police station’s non-emergency number a call and pose your situation to them as a hypothetical to see how they would react. If you would like to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY we could make that call with you or for you. Another organization you could call is Child Help/National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 for support resources.

      Thanks again for reaching out. We understand it takes a lot of bravery to share your story and reach out for help. Feel free to chat with us online or gives us a call anytime as we are available 24/7 and are completely confidential. Best of luck!

      Hey there,
      It seems like you have a lot going on in your life for being so young. It’s understandable to feel angry sometimes and even have suicidal thoughts. It seems like professional help for anxiety and everything else you are dealing with may be helpful. Its good that you have youtubers that have helped you cope with everything but they can’t replace one-on-one help long term. If you and/or your parents would like some therapists near you, please call 1-800-RUNAWAY or online chat with us so we can try and find one.

  • I'm 12- I just don't hate my family I hate everything that surround me in my life
    the only reason to why I haven't killed myself is because of my friends there are the little hope I have left
    I really just wanna leave my house hold and get adopted by another family
    my family has always been toxic my mom always being so narcistic I can't even describe it she's always crushing me until I
    feel absolutely worth even blinking for my dad he tried to be a good dad or at least that what I tell myself
    he never knew how to discipline me and he always says it my fault
    its like anything I say or think is wrong if my parent fight
    its because of me always my fault something I should've guessed I always wrong
    it's always just an excuse to argue.

  • I’m 12 years old, my family hates me, I’m a slave. I’m scared to stand up knowing I will be beaten up, they want to kill me, they curse me, swear, and hit me. They also team up against me. They want me to rot away. I live in hell.

      Hi there,

      It was really brave of you to write us here on our Bulletin and share a bit about your situation. From what you shared it sounds like your family has been making home feel dangerous and that is not okay for them to do. You deserve to be treated in a way that makes you feel safe and cared for.

      Your parents are supposed to make you feel comfortable at home and it seems that they are not doing that. One option that you do have is to report the issues at home. A child abuse report can get a social worker involved to help. This can be a scary decision to make and you do not need to make it alone. There is an organization called Child Help which advocates for young people in unsafe or abusive situations. You can contact them at 1-800-422-4453 or go to childhelp.org to talk more about what making a child abuse report might look like for you and help getting the process started.

      If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger, you can call 911 for emergency services.

      We truly want to be a support for you as you decide on your next steps. We are available 24/7 to listen and help as much as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out again by phone or chat if you would like to talk more in-depth about your situation and explore your options. You can contact us by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at www.1800runaway.org.

      We look forward to hearing from you soon so that we can help,
      NRS

      Wow you do not deserve to be told such hurtful things, or to be hit. It must be so difficult to have to deal with all of that, and we want you to know that you are not alone.

One option to consider is to call Child Help at: 1800-422-4453, and they would be able to help you make a report. You can also contact us and we would be more than happy to help you with making a report. Also if you are ever in immediate danger please call your local police department and they can assist you.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for your response to another user’s post. Often forums are a place of support and understanding for many youth.

For anyone experiencing any difficulties or challenges, the National Runaway Safeline encourages youth to reach out to our 24/7 crisis support line either by phone at 1-800-786-22929 or live chat (1800runaway.org) for immediate services.
