    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us 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. It seems your family has always been very strict and now that you are older and wanting to be independent, it has become that much more overwhelming. It is understandable to want to leave and make sure you do not have to contact your family again especially since it sounds like living with them has taken a significant toll on your mental health. There could be resources in your area that can help you with things like housing, finding a job, continuing your education, and basic necessities.

    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. If 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: https://www.childhelplineinternation...pline-network/. You mentioned that you might currently be in the United Kingdom. Here is a crisis line that might be able to help you find resources for where you are living currently:

    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.

    Be safe and good luck,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
