  • How to ghost family and leave state at 15

    Say I'm a boy, 15, I have lots of mental issues that make it hard to function like a normal person (anxiety,depression,adhd), school is hell, I constantly fail at suicide attempts, life is basically nothing but a chore to me, if there is any chance of me continuing to wake up everyday, it won't involve me in this town, I live in california, I have a friend that is 16 in idaho, who said he will drive down and pick me up, and I can live with him, being loved by another person is really all I've got going whether it's in a relationship or not, I need to know how (preferably without leaving all my old accounts behind, I can make it so my location is not revealed to my parents, as I don't want to be brought back home) how do I completely stop them from finding me, would it be in my best interest to make a new phone number? Im aware of legal action but if they want me alive then they shouldnt stop me, i'll be leaving a note for them with info

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    Be safe,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

        Hello There,
        Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. We are all real people who answer the forum responses.

        It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
        Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
        We hope this information may help you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore options such as shelter resources or mental health resources please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and provide support to you. Best of luck!
