    I am 17 yrs old about to be 18 next year and I can’t stand living with my parents anymore they’ve done nothing but hurt me physically and mentally and i can say for once im afraid of staying in this place I want to run away but im scared I might be caught by the police and taken back and things might get worse nothing has happened yet to me physically but they hurt my mental health to a point where im afraid of not being able to wake up the next day or be able to see tomorrow again idk what else to do and I can’t wait until im 18 to move out I don’t want to involve cps in this bc it will make it worse and I won’t be able to since again I have no physical evidence I can provide but I’m scared of staying here much longer…

      Hi, thank you for reaching out. That sounds like a really stressful and overwhelming situation. It sounds like you are being mistreated and abused by your parents and you are wanting to get away from them. It seems like your mental health has been affected by their treatment to the point where you are not sure if you will see tomorrow or not. We care about you and your safety and do not want anything bad happening to you. You mentioned that you do not want CPS involvement for fear that might make it worse, which is understandable, as we cannot even guarantee of what that outcome would be. If you would like to talk more about what you are experiencing or possible options to help, please either call our hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat us online at We hope to hear from you soon.
      Be safe,
