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.

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. Please keep from randomly messaging me for chat support at any point in time if I haven't otherwise made it clear that I am available to do so. I am not available all the time as I am sure none of us are, so if you are a listener looking for support, please visit the listener support room. I am not around too often these days but you are free to message me personally and I will get back to you 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 teamA note from my end to all listeners: If you have questions in regard to any of these roles that I undertake, I would gladly help you out! As a listener, you could have several questions, be it in regard to the site or in regard to chat situations, or in getting verified. As a part of my role, I would happily contribute in whatever small way that I can in answering your questions. I spend a lot of time in chatrooms providing support to fellow listeners as well so please never hesitate to reach out! My listening style:My listening style varies based on the needs of members. You will have a safe space to vent out and speak your mind and my ultimate goal will be to make you feel understood. During sessions, my attention will be solely on you and you only. I do not like taking more than one chat at a time. I am able to bring in a lot of clarity and wisdom to situations, while showing kindness and empathy at the same time. 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. I take pleasure in bringing peace to my members and in looking out for them in whatever small way that I can. No problem is a small or insignificant problem to me. I am looking forward to being there for you, and working with you on things! 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!

I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly. But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed! 🦋I am a verified, trained active listener with experience on several leadership teams here. I believe in the power of listening and motivating one another for success. Apart from my work here, I am a bookworm, poet, and lifelong learner.
