Need to talk to someone?

More Filters

It can sometimes be difficult to find support from family members, friends, or like minded people. While you might have a best friend or a support system and network such as groups on social media, you might want to seek support without any social interaction.

Our listeners provide emotional support through active listening. Active listening helps process your emotional distress. The following page can be filtered to seek listeners who provide long-term help and support. You can also browse listeners according to your preferred language as well as for different topics amongst other filters.

7 Cups is a chat site/app that has different options to find a good listener. You can meet new people and text chat with other individuals going through tough times - you are not alone! Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their lives and we are here for you. Whether you are facing relationship problems, panic attacks, struggling with substance abuse, loneliness, depression, anxiety, or any other mental health issue, our site/app is a safe space based on confidential, anonymous support.

A good idea is to consider what form of support you would like in the first place - we have plenty of options to explore and one of the best ways is to give them a try to find out what works for you. We understand that different people have different needs and preferences. All these support services are appropriate for different situations.

This page can help you seek a trained active listener to talk to through 1-on-1 conversations. These listeners come from different walks of life and all are ready to offer a compassionate listening ear to people who would like to talk to someone else. You can select their username to view their detailed profile page with their shared bio and other information such as whether they have lived experience of mental health conditions or topics, their reviews, as well as their training and other badges. While our listeners do not provide direct advice, their support can help you vent your feelings and concerns in a safe space and you can work together to figure out healthy coping tools.

Listener conversations can vary in duration according to your listener's and your personal availability. Some listeners have the option to schedule chats with them in advance. You can always browse for listeners and leave them a message so that they can get back to you with their availability.

There are several other ways you can find someone to talk to at 7 Cups. These include the group chats and subcommunities. We are glad you are taking the first step towards support!

Our group chat rooms are online chat rooms that serve as different support groups where you can send text messages 24/7. We are a global community with people from all over the world. Some chat rooms include the Sharing Circle room, which is a non-judgemental safe space based on the traditions of AA and similar support groups. This space can prove helpful if you need a group of people to talk to who can listen and get to know you over a long time. Sharing your feelings and experiences as well as listening to those of others can help feel supported. You can expand your support network and make online supportive friends and connections!

On the other hand, if you would like to interact with people and talk to someone over forums, we have dedicated subcommunities for over 45+ topics covering a wide range of mental illness support topics through various sub-forums. Our subcommunities provide support, awareness, events, as well as opportunities to participate in light-hearted icebreakers.

Apart from the above mentioned mental health services at 7 Cups, we have affordable therapy options allowing you to seek online therapy for mental health problems with an online therapist, licensed psychologist, and other mental health professionals. This support is affordable as compared to other online and offline services or other options like support through insurance companies. Therapists are also available to talk to throughout the week on working days.

While our community can help support you after you have lost someone else to suicide, 7 Cups is not to be used in the state of active/passive suicidal thoughts - for such cases, please visit helpful resources such as the Samaritans or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For a complete list of helpful resources, click here.

If you would like to gain further insight and helpful information about different mental health topics, you can visit our Community Questions and Answers pages, or read our Expert Mental Health News and Advice articles. Other main features you can explore include our self-help guides and growth paths based on treatment protocols available for free!

The bottom line is, you are never alone - 7 Cups is a community aiming to provide compassion on a global scale. There are various ways to talk to someone at 7 Cups. These include 1-on-1 conversations based on active listening and support through trained listeners, group chats with support discussions and Sharing Circles, and the subcommunity forums. Other features that you may find helpful include the growth paths, community questions and answers, as well as expert advice sections.

I deal with relationships/breakups only. All other categories should be referred to another listener. PLEASE NOTE: I do not do sex chats or chats of sexual nature. Such chats will be blocked and reported. I am a volunteer here. Please do not substitute this for therapy or counseling. Due to heavy personal request rates, I will not be able to take every personal request. If I cannot take your request, please choose another listener or you are free to request me again at a later time. I am open-minded but will not sugarcoat as I feel that will not help you. However, I'm also very understanding and empathetic. It will be my pleasure to help and listen however I can.

Quick note: I'm not always online during the day but feel free to hit me up and I can get back to ya. I can sometimes leave chats or not respond, but that's because of my ADHD. I'm really trying my best, and I will do my best to reply :] she/they (happy pride month everyone!!! shoutout to all the closeted and questioning peeps!)  Hey y, all! I'm crystal, a chill and positive person that wants to help you out and support you. I know how it feels to be alone, and I'm here for you and ready to listen to whatever you have to say. I am also a steve fund listener on here and your fun and friendly neurodivergent bisexual ;]  And I really do love talking to yall, you make my day worth it. You are never alone. While I can't solve your problems or fix your pain, I will be there for you every step of the way. I have personal experience with ADHD, LGBTQIA+, racism and POC issues, mental health struggles, and eating disorders. about me: I use every part of my brain to resist quoting cliche movie lines, falling asleep, and singing the pokemon anthem.  - if you give me food or coffee you will be my new best friend (sending coupons is also appreciated)  - Snorlax is my spirit pokemon and marceline is my spirit girfr- human - I love talking to humans (except when I'm eating then approach with caution) FYI: Please read what I am ok and not ok with discussing before you pm me, I want to be able to help you in the best way possible. These can be found under my profile titled "categories". You can still talk about the other categories with me, but I may not be very knowledgeable about those experiences. I'm not ok with talking about these at all:  please don't ask about them when you pm me   -sex (sexual trauma, sexual health, etc.)    -weightloss management  - exercise - weight motivation    But to all the survivors on 7cups, You are valid and strong. You should know that whatever happened to you was not ok and that it happened. You have the right to feel however you feel after the incident and tell your story to whoever you feel comfortable with.     "100 bad days make 100 good stories" - AJR

Hello, I'm Lin! I have gone through many chapters in my journey and still going through them now. I see each chapter as a lesson (opportunity) for me, whether positive or negative as they open and close. I learn to be more empathetic, positive, active and great listener/life coach. My goal is to help you visualize and feel into what you are going through, then we can figure out what you want to do from there.  I love people, running, singing, dancing, tai chi, cooking, creating new recipes, meditation, reading, talking and listening to people. So how about working together: multiculture/multilevel relationships, struggles, health and wellness and etc.   Thanks for viewing my profile.

If for some reason my status is green but I am not responding: It has been determined that there is a current problem with my status in the search results; it shows me as always available. Please refer to the chat window for my current status and understand that I am unable to control the errors that occur on the website. Generally speaking, I do not provide support for relationship issues, domestic violence, sexual trauma, discussions of incest and/or other non-consensual sexual experiences. I do not provide detailed discussions of sexual desires, fetishes or sexual dysfunction in biological men; if you need help in these areas, I recommend working with a professional.I cannot discuss self-harm, suicidal ideation/events, or abuse events. Please seek support from another listener if you need this kind of help, or reach out to suicide.org My name is Lynn, and I'm glad you've found me! I'm a trained listener with a degree in English and psychology as well as professional training in peer counseling. I am NOT a professional psychologist, and I cannot provide therapy services. My primary study in the psychology field focused on abnormal psychology and human sexuality; I am current working on a book addressing human memory. I am GLBTQ+ friendly. My professional training has focused mostly on sexuality, anxiety management, and autism spectrum disorder. In my free time, I enjoy writing, movies, and MUSIC!!! Feel free to reach out to me anytime I'm online. If I'm not currently available, you are free to write a detailed message discussing your concerns after you've completely reviewed this profile. I generally do not reply to messages that provide no detail and/or indicate that they didn't review my profile. Please read previous member reviews before connecting with me. If you're a fellow listener, I appreciate your interest, but I will hold you accountable to the listener agreement and will not provide emotional wellness support outside the parameters of that agreement, no exceptions! I am, in general, an acute situation listener. I focus on accountability support. This means I'm not likely to "just chat" with you. I am an active and engaged listener who will reply and ask challenging questions; if you're looking for a place to simply vent to someone and are not interested in a discussion regarding active choice and personal responsibility for your outcomes, I recommend you work with another listener first.I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.  I am also a person living with ASD. My vocabulary and style of speech has been labeled as mean, harsh, aggressive, you name it, I've heard it. This is because I speak matter of factly, in detail. My messages will not have hidden meanings; I say what I mean. Sometimes this is difficult for members. However, I find that respectful communication can go a long way to resolving these difficulties. My style is to talk about progressive approaches and necessary steps, whether or not they "feel good"... I'm not one to try and package up harsh realities in fuzzy packages. I firmly believe that every adult has the ultimate responsibility for their feelings and their response to those feelings, so a discussion with me will be about accountability, self-honesty and can sometimes be a "rude" reality check. My expectation for members that talk to me is that they have read this description and accept that this is what they will get from me; that I expect them to be a grown adult, able to speak about issues with maturity and a desire for affirmation and change, and will understand that it is up to them and them alone where the power lies. I am simply a facilitator in your own conversation with yourself; if something I say is sharp, hits home, there is a reason. As any listener on here has the right to do, I reserve the right and ability to set conversational boundaries and protect myself as an emotional being. If at any time I feel that either involved party is at risk during our conversations, I will advise as much and do my best to direct the member to the best path. While I have professional training and education, I cannot provide therapy services or fill in as a replacement for your mental health professional.
