  • Need Help

    I'm 24(female). My dad has beaten me recently, he always does that. He also beats my mother, its been 28 years and she has not done anything (will never do it as well). I'm sick of this life. My parents are orthodox and very conservative. They don't allow me to go out with friends neither i can talk to someone over the phone. I'm in depression, there is no one with whom I can talk to and lately, I'm feeling suicidal. Want to leave this place asap. I know i can earn and live on my own. But I'm confused. My dad is a kidney patient so i don't want to make a police complaint. Please suggest what should I do? shall I move out?

    RE: Need Help

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you have been having a hard time at home because of the abuse you and your mother have been facing. No one deserves to be going through such abuse. You have the right to report this, although it sounds like that’s not something you’re interested in doing right now because of your dad’s health which is understandable.
    You mentioned that you are feeling suicidal. It’s a really serious thing to be considering taking your own life, but it’s extremely brave to speak out about this. We’re here to support you and we encourage you to call the National Suicide Hotline for further support if you are ever in need: (800) 273 TALK (8255). If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger please do call 911.

    Another resource we’d like to pass along to you is the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 799 7233, a hotline that anyone affected by domestic violence in any capacity is welcome to call for support.

    We’re not legal experts, but generally speaking at the age of 18 in most states you are considered a legal adult. If you need assistance finding a place to go, you can call us at 1800 RUNAWAY (786 2929) and we can look up shelters in your area.

    Please do not hesitate to call or chat. We’re here to help.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
