      Thanks for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. You made a great first step to finding the help that you may need. It sounds like you are going through a lot and the people around you are not being supportive. You deserve to be treated with respect, to experience acceptance and to feel safe.

      We want you to know that you are strong for having gone through so much already. It is perfectly okay to deviate from what others or the common population believe to be “normal”. You’re bravery and resilience is so admirable. You are so strong for having gone through so much without having the acceptance that you do deserve for just being you. Remember that you are not alone. If you ever want to talk more about what you are experiencing or get additional support we are here 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY or our live chat service. The GLBT National Hotline at 1888-843-4564 is another option to gain great support from those that are familiar with the issues and experiences of those that are also a part of the LGBTQ community. You can access their website link bellow to utilize all the other possibly useful resources they have to offer: http://www.glbthotline.org/

      You mentioned that you were considering the options that may be best for you. By all means, if you do fear for your safety either now or in the future, do not hesitate to take the necessary steps to regain your safety. This may mean calling the authorities or possibly reporting the things you may be experiencing. Other options to think about may be other family members, friends, or a trusted adults that would be able to provide you with support or a safe place to stay. It is great that you thinking ahead. Should you feel like leaving home is best, it may be a good idea to think about how you will provide necessities for yourself such as food, clothing, showers, healthcare and other basic needs. You may want to also consider how your parent’s will react to you leaving without permission. We are not legal experts here, but typically as a minor (under the age of 1 you need permission from your parents to leave home. It is not illegal to runaway, but it would mean that your parents could file a runaway report with the police. This is usually done in an effort to try to return you home as the police are required to do so.

      If you can give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or reach out through Live Chat at www.1800runuaway.org. We can try to find some youth shelters that may be near your city and state by utilizing our database of resources. We can also try to call out to shelters with you or on your behalf to advocate for you. Some other great resources are as follows:
      Trans Lifeline: 877-565-8860; https://www.translifeline.org/
      Trevor Project: 1-866-488-7386; text “START” to 678678; chat at https://www.thetrevorproject.org/

      Hope to hear from you soon. Stay safe.

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runimeaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know you are not alone,
      One option you could consider would be speaking with a school counselor about what is going on at home. Sometimes speaking with an adult can help offer support and help with options and resources. We are not legal experts but do have some information. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you it is a possibility that you could be brought back home. If running away is your best option, you could always give us a call and we can try and find you somewhere to stay.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. Best of luck!

    I'm a 12 year old girl. My mom constantly judges me and emotionally abuses me about my weight even though its healthy. I want to run away to my best friend's house. Will her or her family get in trouble if I go?

    My mother often emotionally abuses me by really hurting my self esteem. Also, as an almost teen, I struggle from acne. Almost daily she pops the zits to the point where they bleed. I don't know if this counts as physical abuse, but it's against my will that she does this. Please help.

    who should i call if im suicidal

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. You brought up suicide in your post and it raises concern about your safety and well-being. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

      It's great to hear that your best friend is so supportive of you! We aren’t legal experts here at NRS, but generally speaking, if you do opt to leave your home your mom can file a runaway report, which is essentially a missing person report. Running away is a status offense; this means that it isn’t illegal, but it’s something you can’t do while still a minor. If a runaway report is filed and you are located by the authorities you will most likely be returned home. The adult in your friend's home could potentially be charged with a misdemeanor but this depends on your local police policy.

      It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your family so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

      Stay safe,

    Im 14 turning 15 in 14 days, I want to run away because of family issues, first of all I feel like they trust me with what I do everytime, for example every night my sister would take my phone out of nowhere, And you can tell my mother loves her more than I do. and not even 10 minutes ago my old ipad that can't do anything other than being an alarm (my phone gets taken away on weekdays, becuase it's a distraction even though the last time I had a horrible grade was 5th grade, C+, only reason i had a C+ is because i was from the Philippines and you can't expect a kid who has been in a school that focuses on Philippine history, to knowing every single bit of American History, IM NOT A ROBOT ffs). Back to the 10 mins ago, my sister tells me in a rude manner to not use my "working ipad" to play video games, I then tell her NOTHING WORKS ON IT BUT THE ALARM FOR SCHOOL, she then says I don't Care im just saying don't use it, then I say THERES NOTHING I CAN DO ON THE IPAD, Games don't work on it anymore, its not connected to the wifi because im gonna use it for YoUtUbE, and she then says I should stab it in my chest so that it would be an alarm forever. Don't you think that when your 19, you should atleast be NICE to your little brother. at this point the only people that i consider on my side are my grandparents who live in the Phillipines, my friends on discord ( i only get to talk to them on weekdays, which makes it hard to make friends irl, because of lack of confidence. I just don't feel like im wanted. I felt like running away on my 15th birthday, so it's a present for them that im no longer in there..

      Hi there,

      First of all, it is great that you are reaching out it show a lot courage. It sounds like you have a lot to deal with at home and it is understandable to be frustrated sometimes. No one should ever make you feel like you are not worthy or that you are not valued. Relationship with siblings can be hard for sure. You mentioned that you think that your mom loves your sister more than you and that you have tried talking to her before about this. If you do not feel up to talking to her on your own, we have a great option called a conference call. This is where we can act as a mediator with you and your mom once you call into the line. Sometimes it can be helpful to involve someone else whether it is our conference call service or another trusted adult to advocate for your needs. It is great that sounds like you have such supportive grandparents. You might want to consider talking to them about what is going on or a counselor because they might be able to offer additional support.

      You mentioned that you lack confidence but reaching out like this shows that you have more confidence than you know. Please remember that you are never alone and you can always reach out to us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat. We are 24/7 and always willing to listen and help you explore your possible options.

      Be safe,

    Hello! I am a girl from the Philippines. I am currently 19 and turning 20 in a few months. As you can see, it's a culture here in our country to live with our parents even after we turn 18. So technically, I'm living with them. However, I want to run away. I do not like this place anymore. I have no money and nowhere to go so I don't know how to start living by myself. Is there any way I can pull this off? I badly want to escape.

    Hi I'm a 15 year old girl I will turn 16 in two days. I want to run away from my toxic home. I'm very depressed. I want to have freedom and live alone safe away from my family. I'm verbally and mentally getting abused and in the past I've wanted to runaway but I have no money or a car or a phone I need help to stay safe and run away to be free from this house and be free of my family. I want to run away but I only have $90, no car, no job. Staying and saving is a good idea but I feel like if I stay any longer I don't know what I would do. I need help on how to get money and where to stay.

      Hi there,

      You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parent’s/guardians permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents/guardians. If needed, we can also help you conduct a conference call where we can help mediate a conversation with your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees.

      We are not legal experts, but we can help you get a general sense of how emancipation works. Our general understanding is some states offer formal emancipation statutes while others do not unfortunately. Laws vary depending on your location, but in many states a minor can petition the court for emancipation to take responsibility for their own care before they turn 18. Generally speaking, courts are wary about granting emancipation. In most cases, you would have to prove in court that you have an income and can care for yourself financially, and that you are able to live separately from your parents. It also helps to be in good standing at school. The court will also factor in the mental and physical welfare of your parents in order to establish your best interest. Usually your legal guardian would have to agree to this in court. Once you are emancipated, you can legally choose where you live, but you might still find that you cannot sign a lease or build credit until you turn 18. The emancipation process can take several months or up to a year, and may cost money in the form of court fees and other expenses. Usually, the best way to learn about emancipation in your state is to contact a lawyer. You may also find information at your county family court. We can look up legal aid resources that may be able to help you with the process. Please do not hesitate to call or chat if you have questions, need legal resources, or need to talk. We can explore your situation, go over all your options, and come up with a plan and resources to deal with your situation over the phone or on live chat. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.
      With you turning 16 so soon, you may find it easier to get a job and have a more stable income. You might want to start looking for some open positions inn your area.
      We hope this helps, and Happy Birthday!

      Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

      Hi,
      Thanks for reaching out; we are glad that you did. It sounds like your parents don't like that you and your boyfriend are together and you want to run away to his house.
      It's understandable to want to leave this situation, but there are a lot of things to consider when running away besides money. We would like to talk this all over with you and you can do that if you chat us through this website, or call 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY), both are confidential and 24/7.
      We truly hope to hear from you soon.

    Hey, I'm 12 years and I really want to run away from home. I am not being abused, but my dad is way too strict, I drank some of my sister's Gatorade and he permenately grounded me from EVERYTHING. When he says that, he means we'll talk in a few months. I also forgot to do a chore, now I have to do extra chores all week. I am so fed up with this ******** I want to run away. I don't have any money, but I do have a source of food and stuff. I am just fed up. I also have mental problems like depression and stuff, and my mom took drugs when I was around 7 to 9. I have had a stressful life and I'm tired of hearing: "If you keep on doing blah blah your gonna be homeless, and be bad to society. What kind of man do you want to be? Blah blah." I understand that he wants me to have a good life when I grow up but he's way too strict, and I am fed up.

      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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It might be helpful to have some information about runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission, there are a few states that have different ages listed. 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.
      Your mental health is very important, and if you need to take care of yourself we understand that. There may be a few resources we could offer to help you find some coping mechanisms as well. Your safety and well-being is the main concern.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 live with my grandparents but they are emotionally abusive and I can't take it anymore. I feel like I'm trapped. They took my phone 2 months ago and I can't afford another one right now. They yell at me almost every day and tell me I'm not mature enough to even go out of my room. I just moved here 3 years ago because my other grandparents were physically and emotionally abusive. I can't take this anymore. I turn 17 in one week and I have very little money and no car. please help

      Hello,

      We are so sorry to hear that you have not been treated well by the adults in your life. You deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. It sounds like the grandparents you live with now don't recognize that you're worthy of more responsibilities. That can be extremely frustrating, and it's understandable that you feel trapped in that situation.

      Running away can be difficult and dangerous; if you do choose to leave home there are many important things to consider like where you would go, how you would support yourself, and how to keep yourself safe. Also, depending on where you live, there can be legal consequences for you and/or any adults who help you run away. If you would like resources in your specific area that might be useful, you could chat with us or call at 1(800)786-2929. Whatever you choose to do, who hope the best for you and want you to know that we are always a resource if you need help in the future.

      Be Safe,

      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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      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 forum to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,
      NRS
