  • I need to get away from my parents but I don’t know what my options are

    I’m 15 and I live in Indiana. My relationship with my parents has always been pretty bad since they got divorced when I was 7. I lived with my mom, her husband and my 7 siblings until I was 13 then my mom and I got into a bad fight and I moved to my dads house but my dad isn’t much better. He never pays any attention to me and I constantly feel like a burden for cause then so many issues with me trying to deal with addiction and depression on my own.. both my parents try to help but never want to take responsibility for being part of the problem.. I have a long history of depression, cutting, and addiction and nothing with my parents seems to work. I also recently got expelled and feel terrible for letting them down once again.. I don’t have any adult that i’m close to in my life but i feel like the best thing for me is to be separated from them for a while but i don’t feel like I have any options..
