    17, 3 cats, nowhere to go.

    hi I’m 17 and I’m stuck in an abusive household with my mom, she drinks a lot and I just found out the father I’ve never met has been arrested for murdering and torturing someone in 2019. If I leave I can’t leave my pets behind, or they’ll have no where to go too. I’m originally a 4.00 student but that’s all going tdown the drain as I’m mentally deteriorating and considering giving up on school. All I know is I can’t be in this house any longer. I’ve started skipping my meds and as of this moment I feel if I hear my moms voice one more time I may act on my suicidal thoughts, or impulsively run with no destination or place to go. I’m stuck. I have nothing I can do.

      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned experiencing abuse and suicidal thoughts. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

      The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.orgis also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

      Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

      If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.or[/url] (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best.
