    Hello, thank you for reaching out to us. We are sorry to hear about your current situation, it sounds like things are pretty hard at home. You do not deserve to be treated like that by your mom. It is unfair that she is mean to you and not your brothers and that she causes you emotional pain, it’s understandable that you are considering running away. It is really cool that you want to be in law enforcement in the future and that you are looking at different options for your next steps. You seem like a responsible and smart individual.
    Turning to look at how you called your local police station to ask about legalities, we want to applaud you for taking such initiative. Although we are not legal experts here at NRS, under general circumstances it is not illegal to run away, yet we cannot say that this applies to you for sure since we do not know of your particular situation. You also mentioned that your family is not willing to take you in since they think you will work it out with your mom, it may be helpful to consider some safe places to go if you were to run away. We are available for confidential calls, 24-7 if you are ever interested in using our resources. We can help find shelters or think of a plan if you would like, our number is 1-800-786-2929. Along with this, we would like to offer the resource for NAMI and their number is 1-800-950-6264, this hotline is useful for speaking about what you are going through, sometimes it can be comforting to talk to someone. We also want to offer the idea to use journaling to release any negative emotions that you may feel from your mom, a healthy coping mechanism might make a positive difference in surviving at home.

    Again, we’re really glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call or chat with us. We’re here to listen, here to help.

    Verbal, mental, and emotional abuse from my mother

    Hello... To put it simply, I'm being emotionally, mentally, and verbally abused by my alcoholic mother. It's been going on for years and I just really am running out of options. I called my local police department and they said that if I ran away (I'm 17 1/2) that they could send me to juvy but I don't know if that's true or a scare tactic to stop me from thinking about it... I got a video last night of her screaming at me drunk and I have it on file- but I don't know what I could do with it... she's a great mom to my brothers but not to me.. I'm so lost I can't be here anymore but I can't go to juvy, I want a future career in law enforcement. No family members want to take me in because they all believe I can work it out with my mom but I can't anymore. I'm honestly about to say screw it and just run I can't take this anymore - I'm including the link to the google drive that has the video from last night - please help
    Call 1-800-RUNAWAY if you are thinking of running from home, if you have a friend who has runaway, or if you are a runaway ready to go home.
