    Thanks for reaching out to us, which sometimes can be really hard, but we're glad you came to us. Sounds like you're having a pretty tough time at home, and we want to offer you some options, and keep in mind our hotline is open 24/7, if you want to call and talk with us at 1-800-786-2929.
    You mentioned self-harming, and if things are taking you to that point, we definitely want you to get to a better place. Some options might be to talk to people at school, or to your friends. If you have some other family or adults that know your family, and could talk to them, that's an option too. If there is a counselor at school maybe that could help too. There is a resource online that also offers some great support called To Write Love on Her Arms: Sometimes things as simple as watching movies, or listening to music, can take your mind off things.
    In terms of running away, while it's not a crime, it is a status offense, and your parents can have you returned home. If you did runaway, you would want to also think about how you would support yourself financially, and where you would stay.
    Another option we have is conference calling with parents and guardians, so if you called us, we could certainly faciliate that with you. Talking through it could help. Hopefully we've offered you some good options, and keep in mind we're here 24/7 if you want to call and talk with us. We wish you the best of luck!
    We hope this response was helpful! We’d love to hear from you about your experience using our crisis forum. Your feedback plays an important role in helping us improve our services to youth and families. Please click the link to fill out our survey:

    I live with my dad and want move

    I moved in with my dad from my mom's almost a year ago and sense I've been here i have been e!trelemly unhappy I've started to self harm and all I do is sit in my room I don't eat and the only time I come out is to go to school and use the bathroom I've told him several times I hate his wife and the house isn't even a home to me it's a prison he forces me to call home i want to go move in with my mom again I miss her and I feel more comfortable with her I'm 15 and seeking guidance and if he won't let me I'm thinking of running away
