  • Do I contact police about my mother abusing me? What happens if I do?

    I’m a 17 year old girl, two months from turning 18.
    I have a video of my mother breaking my bedroom door down along with the frame off of my wall to throw me down on my bed to slap my back, and photographs of scratches down my face and neck.
    She chokeheld me against a wall and yanked my hair until I was down on the ground. That I don’t have a video of, but my older sister who’s 28 says she overheard my mother threatening to kill me. She chased me down the hall with a screwdriver.
    I called my father to come home and help, and he diffused the situation. He’s begging me to not tell my therapist or child protective services, and says if I do, I’m burning a bridge with him. He came home and fixed my door + door frame.
    I am so close to being 18, and my dad says that he’s sure that my mom won’t have an outburst like that again before I leave. But how can he be so sure?
    I really want to tell my therapist. I’m scared.
