November is National Runaway Prevention Month. It is to show awareness and to help youth safe and off the streets. National Runaway Switchboard celebrates this in order to educate the public so they are more aware and can help prevent youth from running away. Many adolescents run away for various reasons, whether it is problems at home or at school. Many adolescents may feel like running away is the only solution. National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) helps with this issue. They provide many services and resources for those in need of them. Before anyone decides to runaway they should figure out if it is the best choice out there. If it is the best choice, those should call for help especially NRS. That way they can help solve the problem that is at hand and have less people trying to runaway. Running away does not solve all the problems that are there it may make it worse. NRS is and always will be confidential.
