    Hello, I am 15.5

    Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and we understand it takes courage to reach out for help.
    The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA.

    We are sorry to hear about that you were beaten by your father.
    You don’t deserve to be hit and abused, it is not your fault that he did this to you.
    We understand not wanting to go back into a situation that puts you at risk.
    Running away may not have to be your only option. You might consider reaching out for help or even talking with your mother about your feelings of being afraid.

    Since you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country:

    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.

    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.
