  • So I'm 15 almost 16 i have struggled with depression PTSD anxiety and ive been addicted to selfharm. I've been been in nine different mental facilities in the course of ten months I've been home for about six months now and things are starting to go back to the way they were there is a lot of verbal abuse and besides school and work I really never get to leave the house. I've have been starting to have thoughts about self harm and suicide once again the last ten months were very traumatic for me and I would really like to finish school but I fear that the longer I stay here the closer I'm getting to going back. I hope you can help me

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. What you’ve gone through sounds like it was an intensely stressful and traumatic several months. It is no wonder that you are looking for options and it shows a level of strength and courage to be able to ask for help from that kind of situation. It sounds like you’ve done a great deal of work to tackle the mental health issues you’ve been struggling with and that is truly commendable. It must be frustrating that it seems like the other people in your living situation are not helping you create the kind of environment you need to thrive.

      We would be happy to talk to you about the specifics of what you’re going through. We could also talk about what resources might be available to you in terms of mental health or transitional programs. We can talk about coping or how to handle remaining in your current situation. We can also talk about what other options there might be, too. Please don’t hesitate to call us on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

      Take care,
      NRS

      Hello! Thank you so much for reaching out.

      You mentioned that your parents left town, and that they left you in charge with one of their friends. It sounds like you guys had a hard altercation among each other, and your mom has grounded you for it. We want you to know that you are not alone, and we are here to help you in any way that we can. We’re not legal experts, but in most states anyone under 18 is considered a minor. If you decide to leave you mom’s home without her permission, she can contact the authorities and file a runaway report. Whoever you end up staying with, can face charges for harboring a runaway. If there is abuse going on in your home, you can contact the national child abuse hotline at 1800) 422-4453. . You can call anonymous, and if necessary, file a child abuse report and someone from child protective services would be in contact within 48 hours.

      We hope these options and resources have been of some help. If you need additional sources, or want us to call somewhere on your behalf, you can reach out to us anytime at 1800) 786-2929. Best of luck!

  • My parents cause me mental and emotional pain and I want to leave, but i feel that if I live with my friend, their parents will want to know why, and I don’t want to tell them and if I do, they will give me back, and if I tell them and they let me stay, I feel my parents will take me back, I’m only 15 so they have the right to do that

      Hi there,

      You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

      Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

      Be safe,

      NRS
