    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, it takes great courage to reach out and we are so glad you decided to reach out to us!
    We are sorry that you are feeling depressed and that you are having issues with your sibling, we want you to know that you are not alone. One option to consider would be to talk with a school counselor or a trusted adult about what is going on. Sometimes talking to someone can help provide support and a different outlook on things. You can also consider doing things that you enjoy to keep yourself busy.
    Unfortunately, we are unfamiliar with the laws in Trinidad as we are located in the United States. But typically if you do runaway as a minor the police can bring you home. If there is abuse going on you can report the abuse. In Trinidad to report abuse you can call 996 or 800-2014.
    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!

    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline – we are here to help and listen!

    We’re sorry to hear that you have experienced abuse in your home, you don’t deserve to be hurt by the people you live with. You have a right to file a child abuse report, and can do so to the ChildHelp Hotline 1-800-422-4453.

    Since moving out under the age of 18 years old is such a common question that we get and can be easily found, we aren’t going to get into what would happen if you left without permission from your legal guardian. If you have some specific questions that you want to ask us or maybe find a place to vent about what you are feeling right now you can reach out to us via our 24-hour hotline and online chat.

    You mentioned thoughts of suicide and self harm, and I’d like to leave you with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255), it is a 24/7 crisis hotline. Another helpful option could be to access a school counselor or mental health professional in your area, sometimes it is helpful to have difficult conversations with family when there is a third person involved.

    If you’d like to discuss these options further, we would be happy to talk to you via our 24/7 hotline (1-800-786-2929) or through our chat feature.

    Best of luck,

    National Runaway Safeline

    im 12 and i want to run away already. i just feel worthless and my dad is always comparing me to my brothers saying "why cant you be like ______" stuff like that. He gets mad at the littles crap and is always showing an attitude to everyone, and expects everyone to treat him like a freaking king or sum. I'm already suffering from severe depression and anxiety, and getting verbally abused every day doesn't help, I've been clean from self-harm for a few weeks, but I started again last week because I'm just going insane with everything. i try to stand up for myself and it always goes to the same thing, "you're just exaggerating, get over it" I've tried suicide 3 times already and I'm planning my runaway and where I'm going. imma go live with my mom, and if that doesn't work out, I can live with my friend, I've met her mom before and shes really supportive about everything, so it might go well for plan b. I'm thinking about starting a singing career too, just for some quick cash. someone help please, I'm going insane.

    Abuse is never okay and we are sorry you are going through that, but you do have the right to make a report.

    Also we know you mentioned wanting to run away, we are not legal experts but we do have some information. If you were to leave without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. Because you are a minor, if the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home.

    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 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. 



    Stay Strong,

    NRS

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to listen and here to provide support.
    It is understandable that you are afraid but everyone makes mistakes sometimes. You could consider talking with your mother about playing the video game. Also if you are afraid of the punishment one option to consider would be speaking with a school counselor and they can help you with options.
    We are not legal experts but we do have some information on the laws. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home.
    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 to help and here to listen. We wish you the best of luck!
