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.

But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we sometimes think the world's problems are so big that we can do little to help. On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine.

I am a university student and student researcher with interests in mental health and neuroscience. I am easy going and enjoy learning about a multitude of topics. I grew up in Northern Ontario and enjoy hiking. During the winter you can catch me reading a book and enjoying a diversity of music. Some of my latest reads include: Julian Jaynes - The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, Nancy McWilliams - Psychoanalytic Case Formulation, and Mark Smith - The Early History of God.I am happy to talk to anyone about a variety of topics. I am also happy to just listen if anyone needs a chance to just let their feelings and thoughts out. I have experience with anxiety, depression, family/school/relationship/work stress, and I have a working knowledge of major mental health conditions. I believe that psychoeducation is important and that with understanding comes strength. No one needs to feel alone and I want to help make that more of a reality for whomever I can.Please note that I am not able to provide professional advice as a listener.

The first step to changing your life?"Stop telling your story as if it is a sad one, and eventually it will stop being one"i have seen many listeners leaving the conversation in between!I have seen many listeners being robotic!I have seen many listeners using this app as dating site!And many more........Sad reality is "End of the day we should stand for ourselves"It may look arrogant but what I feel is "instead of telling same problems again and again, just have some light hearted convo to distract yourself "atleast it will make you feel good for a while.haha and it's completely my opinion!Please don't show up to argue or for debate sessions...

"If you see someone without smile, give them one of yours" I wanna share smiles with you people just text me and let me make you smile even in your moments of great distress. And also if you are looking for a shoulder to cry on, feel free to text me as I know how much it hurts to have nobody to really care for you or understand you. Lastly want to add some advises I have written myself, these might be any help to someone: 🥴🥴🥴           "Worth yourself, people will worth you"             "You will never find happiness in your life, it's something you create" 🍫🍫🍫 and some random quotes from the internet:"If someone makes you miserable more than they make you happy, it doesn't matter how much you love them, you need to let them go." "You can't change someone by loving them Harder" Please cut off everything which is ruining your days and face everything. Sometimes, it is better to face temporary pain rather than having permanent pain.
