    Thanks for contacting us. It seems that you and your mom don't get along very well. We imagine that must be stressful! You mentioned that you want to live with your aunt, but your mom probably won't sign any paperwork. We aren't legal experts here, so we can't say for sure if you could go to live with her legally without your mom's permission. If you are 15 you would most likely need legal consent to do so. There may not be a way to make your mom sign those papers. Maybe you could reach out to your aunt for help with how to deal with stress at home? If you need us, feel free to reach out for help. If you are feeling depressed you can always reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

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