How can I get emancipated at the age of 17?

For about 3 years now, I’ve been highly stressed in school and outside of school due to the fact that my mother keep on constantly trying to find a way to make life miserable due to her bi-polar mood. She constantly act unprofessional and make me quit my job at last minute. I have been providing stuff to support myself and I currently have a job. She doesn’t support me much with anything I do. I’m basically an independent 17 years old. I need to get out before my head explode from all these stress she’s giving me. I’m perfectly fine everywhere else but in this home.
