    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It sounds like home is a scary place and it makes sense that you'd have some trepidation about telling someone at school if you think that it will make her actions worse.

    You mentioned some things about your mom's behavior that raise concern for your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,
    NRS

You can text NAMI to 741741 and talk with a crisis worker there. You could also call 1-800-662-4357 to contact the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time. Having depression and feeling isolated can be really hard to deal with alone.
    One option you could consider is talking with a school counselor about what has been going on. Sometimes talking to a professional can help you feel better and they can also provide resources and help you explore options.
    You mentioned you are in Australia unfortunately most of our resources are based in the United States, it may be a good idea to contact a hotline in your country for resources.
    We wish you the best of luck!
    NRS

    I'm only 12 and I think I have depression, I lived in a country that has bad education when I was younger and then moved to Australia, and I am now schooling in a boarding school.
    I get very homesick at random times, the school has mean teachers and the kids there are not very nice to me. I get bad grades no matter how hard I try or even if i get a tutor. my mom doesnt pay attention to me only my younger siblings. I get blamed for everything my younger siblings do, and my mom always yells at me. I have a very high level of stress and my mom doesn't want me to see a specialist and thinks that it is just me. I cannot sleep at night and always getting stress headaches. my dad is always nice to me but I don't get to see him much often as he is always travelling. I don't have any friends. and I am very lonely. I love art and I always try to impress my mom but she always ignores me and pays attention to my younger siblings. she always hits me and yells for no reason.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. It sounds really hard to have your mom and stepdad turn their backs on how you've been feeling.

    You mentioned some things about your mom's actions towards you that raise concern for your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it.

It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    A couple of times in your post you raked about not wanting to exist and feelings of depression getting worse; we care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time. If you’d like some additional support, an organization that may be helpful is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). You can contact them by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or you can text them by sending NAMI to 741741.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    All my siblings have moved out but my brother who doesn’t seem to care about me and goes out of his way to make sure my life is miserable, My religious stepfather turns his back to my problems and how I feel, along with my mom.

    She physically and emotionally abuses me and hits me with whatever she can find. I really am trying to be the perfect daughter she wants me to be, I’m on honor roll, I never talk back or do anything attitude like, But it’s not enough. I’ve already contemplated suicide or just running away as have my other siblings have done. I would go to my father, But he can’t do anything as he’s on a wheelchair as I type this, so there’s no escape. All my mom does is yell at me and scream and weekends aren’t enjoyable anymore or just the simple things like coming home from school cause I know what’s waiting for me there.

    I have no will to exist anymore because it feels like I’m failing everyone and like Nobody will miss me when I’m gone. I’ve already tried therapy and stuff and my depression has only gotten worse, everyone keeps telling me it’s going to get better and it hasn’t. I’ve battled depression for two years and I haven’t seen the light yet. I’m so tired of waiting on people to care only for them to let me down. I would feel better if I didn’t exist anymore, my mother hates me and the rest of my family doesn’t care.

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today with this question.

    Spanking can be seen as a form of discipline and may not be seen as abuse. However, it is possible that it could be scene as abuse if there is too much force used. To learn more about how child protective services would respond to your situation, you might reach out to the expert child advocates at Child Help 1-800-422-4453. If you are interested in reporting and would like an advocate on the phone with you please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    We truly wish you the best,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

    We’re so sorry to hear that your mom treats you that way. You should feel safe in your home, and no one should be physically hurt or mentally abused in their home. You should feel safe and protected in your home, and it is clear that you do not feel safe. It is brave of you to contact us for help.You have a right to report this abuse directly to Child Protective Services to learn more, you might reach out to Child Help: 1-800-422-4453.

    If you feel more comfortable reaching out to someone you trust, whether a counselor at school, someone at church or friend’s parent, there is help available. If you are being injured at home, people can investigate your home life and recommend a safe place for you. If your mom is in a rage and you need help, it is also possible to call the police. The police are trained to calm people down and could also stop you from being hurt. The behavior you describe makes it sound like your mother might need some help to deal with her anger and losing control, so another adult could also help her.

    We also have a 24 hour phone line, if you have questions or would like to talk with a real person. Sometimes it is helpful for us to learn more about your situation and for you to have someone to talk to. It can take a bit of courage, and some privacy, to give us a call, but our callers often tell us that they feel better after talking to us. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929), so feel free to call us anytime.
