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'm Amy! 💭 It's not always easy to talk about ourselves, our problems, or our views, we never know how others will react to what we are saying. It's not easy to feel at ease when opening up to a stranger or finding someone with who you feel comfortable. I can't promise to be the right listener for you, I can't promise a fix to your problems, feelings, and thoughts, I can't promise an answer to every question there is, but I can offer a friendly ear to talk to and to share your story with. We all have a story, we all express our feelings in a different way, we all react to things differently. No problem is small, if it affects you, you have every right to talk about it and feel the way you feel about it. You have every right to share it with someone and it's what I am here for - to listen.  ☑️ Teen pregnancy/ Teen parenting friendly! Any related issues you can discuss with me, I won't judge and I might even understand it more than you think. 🕠 I'm online at least once a week, so if I'm not online, you can leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If I'm online, message away and we can chat. If you would like to schedule a chat with me, you can simply message me and we will work out the best time that works for both of us!Thank you for reaching out to me! 💜

Unfortunately, I have to take a little break right now. If we had contact earlier, I am going to write you back as soon as possible though."You have a wisdom inside you - listen for it.  You have a light inside you - feel its glow.  You have the power to speak and act and make things manifest in the world - let your wisdom and light guide you as you do." - Michael Neill The wisdom inside everyone has always the best answers to every question. We only need to listen to it. And sometimes it is easier to hear it when we talk to someone else and that is why I and many other listeners are here.  Sometimes everything seems dark and we do not know where the light has gone. It has not gone - it is inside of us. Feeling accepted and understood can help us to feel it. I am here on 7Cups for nearly four years now, so I had the chance to gather a lot of experiences I am very grateful for. Sometimes life just does not work like we would like it to, but the conversations showed me again and again that we are always close to our solutions. We as human beings are incredibly resilient and we can grow so much during difficult times. If you would like to talk to me about something that is bothering you, feel free to write me a message.  If my status says online, I am waiting to listen to you. If it says busy, I am online but talking to someone, chatting in a group support chat, or doing a training. If it says offline I am unfortunately not available at the moment. Please leave me a message if I am busy or offline. I will write you as soon as possible. I try to support people on 7Cups with the following roles: I am a trained, vertified active Listener, a Quality Mentor, a member of the Care Team and the Profile Safety Patrol, and a part of the translation team.If you would like to help me improve my listening skills, you could do that by leaving a review after we have talked together. Thank you! If I am suddenly offline during a conversation, it is because I have lost my connection. In this case I am very sorry, I will write back you as soon as possible.

Please read before messaging: I am not taking on 1-1 member chats as I am putting my primary focus on leadership roles. I may take up general requests however depending on my availability and emotional capacity. If you find me around in group chats, it is not an indication that I am available to personally message with you. Please keep from texting me for chat support if I haven't indicated my availability to you. If you are a listener looking for mentoring or want to get verified and need more information on it, you are free to message me personally and I will get back when I come on here! Please do be respectful when in chat with me. I especially appreciate qualities like that of punctuality, and sincerity.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding!My roles on 7cups: - Quality mentor - Anonymous evaluations team - Chat support - Safety patrol flagging team - Listener verifier team My listening style: You will have a safe space to vent out and speak your mind. During sessions, my attention will be solely on you and you only. I like to start out each conversation by drawing out a plan so as to keep the chat centered towards your needs. There will be no opinions, judgement or advice from my side and my goal will always be to truly listen and show understanding. I am very resilient and open-minded, nothing shocks me or makes me panic and I am hoping to bring these aspects in my role as a listener. If you feel lost or stuck, I would be very happy to brainstorm ideas with you.My availability: I am not checking cups regularly, and so my response time could be a bit delayed. Do not hesitate however to leave offline messages.
