  • 18 and have nowhere to go

    I'm 18 years old and I don't know where to turn to. Last year I was given medical leave from my high school, I had been hospitalized for suicidal plans and was sent to a boarding school for non-verbal learning disorders. Now I'm getting medical leave from the boarding school for not attending class and cannot go home as my parents no longer want anything to do with me. Ive been struggling with severe depression presenting with psychosis for two years and am not sure what to do with my life at this point, it seems there is no hope left for me.
