    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, it takes great courage to reach out and we are so glad that you have decided to reach out. We are sorry to hear that you got in trouble, that does not mean your family will never trust you again. Sometimes it takes time to build trust, running away may break the trust again.
    We are not legal experts but we do have some information. If you were to run away, your legal guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they would most likely bring you back home. From our understanding you would not face any jail time. You may want to consider talking to your family about building trust back up and options. Also you could consider talking to a school counselor about what has been going on at home.
    We know you mentioned suicide, and we want you to know there is always help out there and always someone willing to listen and provide support. You are important and you are worth living, the situation you are feeling right now is temporary, suicide is permant. If you are ever feeling suicidal please reach out to The National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 800-273-8255.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. Best of luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
