Answer:

If you are in immediate danger call 911. If you are being abused you should tell a trusted adult and have them contact Child Protective Services at (888) 767-2445. You may also want to call the Children's Law Center at 602-258-3434 extension 266.

Take a look at the links section of LawForKids.org, as it lists many resources for teenagers.
