  • 16 almost 17, don't feel safe. Need to leave.

    'm 16 years old and I really want to leave home. I live with my dad and he treats me like ********, he is unreasonable and only cares about himself and not how his words or actions effect others...including me. When I was 11 my mother passed away and it left me extreamly depressed, on top of that my father had also grounded me for two years for talking to a boy that he didn't want me talking to. I was cut off from everybody and was extreamly depressed and I started cutting and I tried to kill myself because of it. My dad didn't help me at all through this, he didn't bring me to the hospital or anything to help. We were on good terms for a while but ever since I graduated high school he's me extreamly rude and mean and its making me feel like I'm falling back into that slump I was in when my mom passed I don't want to get as depressed as I was then, when we fight I get thouse thoughts again and I don't want to hurt myself...I don't feel safe here for that reason. My boyfriends mother agreed for me to stay there and she would care for me and feed me and treat me like her own, I would be giving her money for food and stuff anyways as a thankyou for helping me out. I have a job, a license, I've graduated high school, and plan to go to beauty school in September. I will be turing 17 in early September as well. I don't want to hurt myself and talking to my dad about this isn't going to do any good. I want to know my rights and how I can leave and live with my boyfriend as soon as possiable. Please help me

    Often, youth may reach out to NRS in several different ways to discuss their situation. If a response from NRS is not visible to a bulletin posting it may be that we have already provided services to that individual through another platform we provide such as email, our crisis hotline, or our live chat service (in operation every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST). NRS encourages anyone in need of assistance to contact us through our 24 hour crisis hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY to receive immediate support.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
