    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and we want to thank you for taking the first steps in getting help. It sounds like you have been hurting yourself because you feel that your parents don't care. Do you have friends, other family, or someone at school that you can turn to? If not, you could try reaching out to an organization called To Write Love On Her Arms at You could be apart of an online community that can provide you with solidarity and help you feel that you are not alone. Also don't hesitate to reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 if you are ever feeling depressed or just need someone to talk to.

    We also have a conference call service here at NRS where a liner can help mediate a conversation between you and your parents where you can possibly feel safer voicing your feelings and coming to some resolutions. Let us know if that is something that you would be interested in. We can be reached 24/7 at 1-800 RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Stay safe, and let us know how we can best help,

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