    Hi there,
    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 being harmed. 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. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    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.org (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
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe,
    NRS

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your situation with us.

    It sounds like home has definitely been over whelming and stressful for you, but reaching out for help is a great first step. Having a support system can be important when you have a lot of stress to cope with, so it is frustrating your mom is trying to cut you off from contacting your girlfriend. Your situation might seem helpless, but there are people who care about you and resources that can help. If you are ever thinking about suicide or need someone to talk to you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or go to suicidepreventionlifeline.org. You can also text “CONNECT” 741741 if you wanted to talk to a crisis counselor. You can also reach out to RAINN the national sexual assault hotline at 1-800-656-4673 or go to rain.org. Trevor Project which is a LGBTQ youth suicide lifeline may also be a helpful resource to provide support for you. You can call at 1-866-488-7386 or go to thetrevorproject.org.

    We are not legal experts but from what we know if you were to leave without your mom’s permission she could file a runaway report. Running away is not illegal, but if police find you they could take you back home. You mentioned that your girlfriend’s mom would be willing to take you in, so you could try talking to your mom about living somewhere else. If you were interested we can help you talk to your mom by doing a conference call with both of you on the line. If you wanted to file a child abuse report and have Child Protective Services involved you could call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453.

    If you want to talk more about your situation or explore options you can call or chat us at 1-800-786-2929, www.1800runaway.org.

    Best,

    NRS
