    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

    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

    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!

    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

    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 There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It seems like you are going through a really difficult situation right now.
    We are not legal experts but if you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home.
    One option to consider is to talk with your school counselor about what is going on in your life. Sometimes it helps to have a person to vent too and have support. Also you could see if any family members or friends would allow you to stay with them for a few days.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here to help and here to listen 24/7. Best of luck to you!

    I want to get out of the house, but I'm only 14 I can't stand my parents and I have at least enough money to make a start living on my own and stuff. All I want to go live anywhere but my parents how, they drive me insane and they won't stop telling me how much of a disappointment I am (or at least implying it). Help maybe??

    Hello There,

    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a pretty difficult time right now. It is great that you seem to have a plan, but you are right in general in most states the legal age to leave home is 18 years old. If you were to leave and the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. If you need a safe place to go you can call us and we can help you look up shelters. You can also consider talking to a school counselor about what is going on, they may be able to help you explore options.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support.
