    Thanks so much for reaching out. Being depressed is super hard, especially when you don’t like being at home. We’re sorry to hear that you used to self-harm, and it’s good that you’re trying to figure out other ways of dealing with your depression. If you want to talk to someone about your depression and self-harm, you can contact the organization “To Write Love on Her Arms.” They have a crisis text line. You can contact them by texting TWLOHA to 741741. You can also contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) at 1-800-950-6264.
    Unfortunately, our organization is not a shelter; it is only a Safeline, a place that youth can contact when they’re thinking of running away or have runaway and want to talk to someone. We do not have the ability to house anyone, but we can offer shelter resources if you call us at 1-800-786-2929. We’re also here to talk and listen if you want to discuss your options and reasons for wanting to leave with someone.

    Thanks again for reaching out, and don’t hesitate to give us a call.

    Hello,
    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. It can be very overwhelming to fight with your dad and to feel unsafe. You mentioned that you feel unsafe, if there is abuse or neglect going on we can report it, or help you report it. Also you may want to talk to a school counselor or teacher and if there is abuse or neglect they may help you report it as well. You also mentioned that you can’t be living at home anymore. At NRS we can provide you with numbers for shelters in your area that you may be able to go to. Also if there is any friends or family nearby that you could stay with, that could help you in your situation.
    Again we are really glad you reached out to us, we are here to help you. If you would like to talk more about your situation feel free to call or chat with us. We are here to listen and we are here to help.

    It sounds like living with your dad is very stressful. I’m glad you reached out for help. This is a great first step to explore your options. Remember you are not alone.
    If there is someone at school you feel comfortable talking with, that might be a good person to try talking about what’s going on between you and your dad. They might be able to help you find another way to cope with this stress. Here is a website that could help with your self-harm, its called to write love on her arm (twloha.com).
    You also mentioned that you are wanting to leave your house. One option is to start family counseling services. If you are interested in trying it, we can help you find a counselor in your area if you call in at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at 1800runaway.org. It sounds like you have had enough of living with your dad, it might be better if you can live with another family member. If your dad agrees to let you live somewhere else it’s called an alternate living situation. You can get his approval in writing, if you want something more legal you can call your local non-emergency police number to see if they offer paper work to fill out. If you don’t have anyone that your dad would allow you to stay with, we can help you find shelters in your area if you call or chat. If you do runaway without permission, your dad can call the police to report you as a runaway. We aren’t legal experts, but this is considered a status offense, so it won’t go on your record and you won’t be arrested. If the police find you, they will take you back home. Another option might be to try to get a family member to mediate between you and your dad. That might help him understand your feelings. If you don’t have someone that could mediate, we have a conference call service where were can call out to your dad to help mediate.
    Again, thanks for reaching out. This sounds like you are going through a difficult time at home. I hope one of these options can work for you. If you would like to keep discussing your options and what’s going on at home, please don’t hesitate to call or chat, we are available 24/7. We are here to listen, here to help.

    It is great to hear you have people in your life that make you happy. Especially in the moments when we are feeling upset, angry, or just want someone to talk to. Those feelings are normal and can be hard to navigate alone.

    Please take moment and look into these resources. There is a lot of information, but the important thing to know is that you are not alone and there are people here to help.

    Hello, I'm posting this anonymously to save my indentity. I'm being emotionally abused by my parents, more specifically my mother. I have done things in the past most teenagers do and to this day she still brings it up. She constantly tells me she is going to beat the '******** out of me' one day, she has also told me things like "I wish I was never a mother" and "you make everything worse". She always screams at me and says it's just the way she talks, but she doesn't talk to other people like that. I found out she was doing drugs and is also mentally ill. I understand some behavior coming from that but she also doesn't treat me like a daughter. She's driven me to the point where I started being very disrespectful to the staff at my school and getting physical with other people. She tells my friends and other family members the things I've done. I have been rude in the past such as talking back and yelling back, but only because I'm getting agitated and fed up with the constant abuse. I come home everyday with her yelling at me or getting angry because I simply just want to live life, she tells me as well that I can come to her about anything. But when I express my depression and or school issues she gets angry and blames it on me. I've tried my best on school but ended up failing my 8th grade year because of the suicidal thoughts I had. I have a boyfriend and 3 amazing friends, they have been the only people to make me happy, I have attempted suicde and tried running away but was caught and yelled at for. I was still cutting myself 8th grade year and my mother called me 'emo' I just don't want anything to do with my family anymore. I'm super stressed out and I cry a lot because of the abuse I go through. I'm only 14 and I just wanna leave this home, please help me I can't file a report because I too scared. I wanna be taken into custody into another family who will accept me and love me . Please help me thank you.

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes courage to seek help. We are very sorry to hear that your mom is dating someone that abuses her. Abuse is never okay and she doesn't deserve to be treated that way. If she does decide to leave, she will be accepted at a domestic violence shelter regardless of her charges. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) is a great resource that could help her come up with a safety plan. You mentioned that your home environment is full of insects and bugs. If you don't feel safe at home, you could contact CPS or the police. You may also want to consider asking your mom if she would allow you to stay with another family member or close friend. We hope that this information helps, please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat if you have any questions or just want to talk.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We are not legal experts, but we can tell you that because you are a minor, if you leave home and your parents file a runaway report, you could be returned home. There could also be legal consequences for whomever you stay with for what is called harboring a runaway. If you want a liner to help you walk through other options like us mediating a conference call between you and your parents, thinking through possible adults that you could turn to or could advocate for you, or things like emancipation and legal aid numbers, don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Best,

    NRS
