Need to move out, desperately.
Hi everyone! Came here because I am so desperate for advice! This isn't really for me as much as it is for my boyfriend, we're both 18 and he's turning 19 in February. His mum is very emotionally abusive and the house he lives in is basically in disrepair, his bed is broken and has holes in and is stained yellow from how old it is and she refuses to pay for any of this despite him still being in education and receiving money for his care. She often refuses to buy him simple things like food, toilet roll and clothes and I have heard her say on multiple occasions that "her ciggerettes come before everything" . He suffers from ADD, depression and anxiety. With all the constant arguing and screaming going on between his mum and his brother (who's 24) it really is putting pressure on him as he is blamed for basically everything could go wrong and is even forced to clean up masses of mess that they make. What would be his best options for getting help and moving out so he could cut contact? We're really desperate to get him out so he can start to heal. This description is a very brief explanation of his situation, but this has occurred for years. Thanks!
