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.

Hey guys and gals! Happy you found you me. Here on 7 Cups of Tea, I'm a trained active listener and I love to listen, take time and support people. I enjoy many things like, Snowboarding, Martial Arts, music, and just hanging out with friends! After going through a lot of issues and standing tall at the end I can relate to a lot of peoples situations. Sometimes all a person needs, is a voice to talk to, once they know that they have people to help its a great first step into overcoming these situations. This is why I'm online and please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Feel free to message me, I'm here to help by talking to you!

Read Here First Please Please don’t send a message that only says “Hey / Hi''. Please let me know what you would like to talk about. I'm not available Thursday after noon until Monday morning. (I use Cups / EST time) This is time for myself and my family. I don't take on chats about sex, sexual abuse, or someone in crisis.  I can't help from this side of the screen, so an adult in real life is better suited to help support these areas. If you are in crisis please contact the resources in the following link: https://help.7cups.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026238093-Crisis In order to make the most of our chat time, please keep in mind that I try to keep chats between 30 minutes and no more than an hour.  What to Know About Me:* I try to look for solutions instead of dwelling on problems. * When I say "I understand", I truly DO understand.* I love learning, exploring and growing and I like to share this, if it can help someone else. * I don't give advice*  I can share with you what has helped me. It may spark an idea of how you can help yourself, but the decisions and choices must come from You.My Twin (and better half) is musicalHarmonyOur Friendship SongMy Mentor and Teacher is LuLuRings

Heya, My name is Leo and I love to help people. I know that the going is tough but so are you. I also know how intimidating it is to reach out for help and I am here to support you through your trials. These trials however long they are will make you into a better and well rounded person in the end. This is a open and safe place for you to express anything that you have on your mind. This can be little things to big things and I will not judge one bit. We are all going through so much so not judging is the least I can do for you in this time! I ask to respect my boundaries. Although I would love to help all the time it is not possible!! I hope you understand!! I will try my best though! A little about me! As I already stated my name is Leo but my family calls me Lee, so whatever works. If you really don't feel like learning my name then you can just say hey you and I will respond haha!! I am currently 18 years of age and am in college for HVAC work. My hobbies include, robotics, trades, and the fact that I love Rubik's cubes! Fun fact!! I actually currently have 555 Rubik's cubes and that is a lot of them!! Now that is enough about me!! If you need support please reach out!! I have been on many different walks in my life, some good and some bad. I am here for anyone that is looking for support as I would like to share some of my cup to fill others up! Hope to talk soon! "You are a work of art, not everyone will see it, but the ones who do, will never forget about YOU!"
