Default Friend wants to run away from emotional abusive family.

So one of my close friends has a bad family who is constantly emotionally abusing her. She goes to therapy, and at a first glance they seem like good people but I realised that they weren't good at all after talking with them for about 3 minutes. Her parents say they do the best the can do but say if there is a treatment or something that could help her, her parents turn down and yell at her. Recently she told me that she wants to run away soon and she might wait for them to kick her out because her brothers and mother have told her she should just leave before. The only advice I could give her was that she needed to earn cash and made sure that she had a plan. She has a small plan and has people she could go to, like her boyfriend and maybe 3 friends. Her parents have threatened that if she left her parents would call the police and she would be sent to a mental hospital which she has been to before and didn't like. What advice do I give her? She has a tablet but it probably got water damaged and doesn't work and she is 14, turning 15 this month.

Social services are probably the best people to talk to about this stuff.

If she doesn't want them to get involved, she could see if an aunt/uncle would take her in until school finishes, and then they can work out a plan from there.

Whatever she does, you need to be there before, during, and after for her. You need to convince her not to run away, as that can cause more problems than it solves, and you need to try and help her figure out what she could do instead, possibly even ask your parents if she'd be able to stop for a month or two, to give her at least some time away from her parents.

She wants to get away from her entire family. And my parents probably wont let her stay with us for a number of reasons.
