    Basically my family are ****ed up. My mum is mental and I didn't hardly see her until I was 13 when I got kicked out of me dads (because of his emotionally abusive wife) and bascaially the last 3 years have been hell with my mum, she tried to get me into care but because she wasn't considered dangerous I couldn't leave, but now I'm 16 should I leave or just kill my self or something I can't ****ing cope

    Childline 0800 1111 and you can talk it over with them.

    You can also speak to your GP about the stress you are under.

    If you want to leave then unfortunately you will have to contact social services or you could try Shelter to see if there are any young peoples housing charities where you can get a place to stay. theres a place to enter your postcode so you can see if there are any drop in centres near you. Imo you would be better off with a young persons charity, but you will have to google that yourself.

    You cant leave education till 18 unless you find an apprenticeship or a job. Obviously dont do anything drastic, eveb if frustrated as that only harms you.
