  • I need a place to go

    I moved from my natal country a year ago and now I live with my stepmother, dad and grandma (I never lived with them before) and my two brothers. My dad and older brother are never home and when they are it’s not so pleasant, I don’t really get along with my grandma and stepmom. I have no friends, my mom is back in my country and I need her so bad. My problem is that I have depression and anxiety, I know I need help but I don’t want anyone of this family involved. I feel like running away all the time, I want to be alone, they are not helping my mental stability. I just want a place where to go right now I can’t handle this anymore, I can’t handle them and not even myself. Is there such a place where I can go?
