    So I’m in a tough situation, my dad physically, mentally, and sexually abuses me so obviously I wanna get out but I’m not all that sure what to do, I’ve kinda talked to my mom but she just said “you can’t just leave your dad like that” so I’m debating on running away I have been for a few weeks and I think I have a pretty good plan but idk what do you think? Any suggestions? (I’m 14 and live in Minnesota btw)

    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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Be safe,
    NRS

      It's not to bad anymore and I don't feel comfortable reaching out to CPS, I did once and they didn't believe me I was younger then and maybe I talked to the wrong person but I was quickly brushed off and dismissed and it's taken me years to have the courage to attempt to reach out again
