I want to run away but I don’t know if I should
From Pat / 03 Feb 2020
Welcome to Ask Pat,
Thank you for taking the time to ask us this question before you decide what you will do.
We would want you to know that we are concerned that you are thinking about running away, as this could put you in an unsafe position and you have the right to be safe.
When we say you could put yourself in an unsafe position, we mean that you might run away to a dangerous situation which could have negative consequences.
We would not be able to give you advice on running away but you could contact us to chat about why you feel you want to run away and we could explore what your options are together.
