Are family matters negatively impacting on your life? Reach out to a hotline for free support in United States

Some families are more complicated than others. Separation, divorce, abuse, grief, financial strife and neglect are just a few of the family matters that could be causing you concern. You are never alone. If you are experiencing any of the following in your home or family life, there are 26 in United States where you can get the understanding and support that you need:

  • Family conflicts with new step-parents, step-brothers, step-sisters or step-children.
  • A sibling, parent or guardian who is absent physically or emotionally.
  • Abuse or neglect from your parent, guardian, sibling or spouse.
  • Job loss, financial struggles or gambling and the impact these can have on your family.
  • Struggles with generational, cultural or religious differences within the family.
  • Perfectionism, pressure or abuse from your parent, guardian, sibling or spouse.
  • Drug, alcohol or gambling addiction and the impact this can have on your family.
  • Problems caused by a lack of money for resources such as food, clothing and accommodation.

Without a warm, loving and safe home to return to at the end of the day, life can seem cold, dark and lonely. Home may not feel like home at all to you. Feeling like you need to avoid your family at all costs can be a horrible position to be in.

You may feel alone if you're experiencing family problems. You may think that nobody else has been through what you're going through and that nobody will relate. However, there are hotline volunteers and counselors in United States who care about the challenges you're facing and want to help you.
