    my friend is being physically and mentally abused at home by her parents, and has been from a really young age. it has seriously affected her mentally and she potentially may be suicidal. I don't know what to do because I know that telling someone could potentially mean she gets put into care and I don't want to ruin her life because she has so much potential and I fear she may just get lost in the system and not get the help she needs.

    Well does she have anyone she can stay with? You can call the police, and let her stay with you. That is not ok and you have to tell someone, hope you consider this :)

    Please tell an adult you trust, the best person to tell is a teacher or a childline counsellor or the police. If you tell a teacher or the police they can make sure that you don't have to live with your stepmum and family anymore. I am so sorry this is happening to you, please tell a teacher or the police I promise they will help. I completely understand if you are scared, yes your life will probably change if you tell someone but it would change to get so much better. Your brother will not be able to do anything to you because if you tell someone you will be safe. If you are worried you will have to keep living with your family for a bit, tell a friend first and ask if you can stay at their house for a while if you need to. Please tell someone, and come back to childline because it's always here for you.

    The best thing to do for her is to tell someone, especially if you think she is in danger. She will probably move into a care home or get fostered or adopted, but if you are worried she will get lost in the system then is there a friend she can stay with? Would she be able to stay with you? If you're not sure, try asking your parents like "if I had a friend who was in danger and needed somewhere to stay would you let them stay with us?" If you're still worried, ask her how she would feel about an adult knowing and if she would prefer living in a care home/with a foster family. See what she says. But the best thing is probably to tell someone.
