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 have a moment if you do, also. I like to share that moment over coffee and listen to the friend across the table. Pull up a chair and join me as I am here to support you. Sure, I'll be drinking my coffee (two cream and two sugar please), but I'll gladly hear of your troubles with anxiety, relationships, mood disorders, and other life stresses. The chair is available for you to take a seat and pull up to the table. I'll be here.Please note, that I am a bit less comfortable supporting the following topics at this time and thus would encourage another listener for these subjects: Self-harm PTSD Alcohol / Drug Abuse

Hey Peeps, im Juzzy, Let me introduce myself a little, I've suffered from depression and anxiety for many many years now, thankfully they are both things ive overcome in my own ways and after a long time of fighting it. I'll admit im a gamer at heart and as a gamer myself i locked myself away from the world for years when i was suffering depression and gaming was something that had actually helped me out of it, as well as the people i met online, years later and here i am, doing much much better thankfully, also as a positive i do a lot of video game ingame photography (Using Nvidia Ansel & Photoshop) also into table top warhammer 40k tho more the hobby side. I will admit that if your looking for a professional tick all boxes listener chat, then that is not me, i am australian so our curse is we're pretty down to earth, if you need someone to vent to, to sit there and say nothing and just let you scream it all out then you couldnt of found anyone better then myself, so be it venting or just help in general to where you feel like your talking to your best friend, then swing me a message :) im always here to help.                                                   Avaliable - Avaliable and Willing to help anyone, drop me a line                                                          Busy - Will be slow replying but will definately get back to you                                                       Offline - Feel free to leave me a message and ill get back to you ASAP  Members, Listeners or Guests my door is always open to you  Note: i am back from a good 6 month break! so bear with me if im a bit rusty D:

I don't have to be an expert. I just have to care. It's a sign of courage and wisdom to ask for help and accept it.  I am a parent of college students, a husband, brother, son, and friend. I'm also an Entrepreneur, Activist, and Photographer. We are all trying to be the best we can be given a variety of circumstances and environmental factors. Our highest self is found when we can authentically and lovingly connect with ourselves and others. Once we have mastered this, life becomes more meaningful and joyful. I have overcome many challenges and am committed to my own growth and that of others. I'm happy you are here, brave one.Meeting Notes:Our time together will likely be productive. I will challenge you in developing your own solution(s). I don't chit-chat and rarely give advice. I will chat with you in a timely manner and give you my undivided attention. I expect the same from you. If one of us does not respond within a couple of minutes or so, I will end the chat and we can attempt again later. My chats usually last about 30 minutes but will go longer if needed. Short texts are best. :)

Please read my entire profile text before requesting a chat!I only take one-time member chats when my status is set to online (green).I am available for returning members and members who are in search of a long-term listener. Drop me a message and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.I only listen to the general topic of abuse. Please have a look at the various subtopics I listen to before you contact me. I will not take chats on other topics!I am a chatroom mentor, listener room supporter, and project agent for chatroom outreach. I also offer peer support to fellow listeners and serve on the safety patrol team.A little bit about me:I have had difficult years due to abuse. I managed to get out and have since been struggling with the emotional repercussions. Among others, I have personal experiences with emotional manipulation (as a victim), anxiety disorder, and self-worth issues. I'm a freshman in college fending for herself. I'm here to listen to others who feel that I may understand them. I hope to be able to offer validation and affection.
