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.

(not taking any new chats currently) 🌸I'm so happy to have you here with me today! 🌸 Hi there! I'm Rainy Memory. ❤️ And I'm a verified listener, who loves to help others! I'll do my best to make you feel heard, understood, and cared for in our chats. You're already taking the first huge step by reaching out, and I'm so proud of you for that! 🌟 My chats are a safe, non-judgmental space, where we can talk about your problems freely like you're talking with a friend. You're not alone. I'm always here for you. And you can talk to me about anything that's on your mind, even if it's just random thoughts! 😊❤️ I've experienced some issues in my life as well— especially depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, student life and family issues. So I'll do my best to empathize with you and what you're going through, and put myself in your shoes. That goes for any topic we're talking about, even if it's not the mentioned above. ☺️I can usually talk for one hour, and then we can continue our chat the next day. I strictly don't take any chats which are inappropriate or are sexual in nature.  Some fun facts about me: I love watching cartoons, learning about the human mind and behaviours, psychology and sociology. A way I cheer myself up is by writing down what I'm grateful for, what I like about my life and about myself, and also by drawing using soft, pastel colours. I also love hearing about other people's days, their struggles, achievements, goals, hobbies, what they're passionate about, or anything else. 😊 If you've read it this far, yay!! Here's a huge hug for you!! 💕💕💞I would love to listen to you! Feel free to message me anytime! And if I'm offline, I'll reply as soon as possible. ❤️❤️ You deserve the best things in the world! Take care! And I hope you have a wonderful day!! 😄🌻🌈🌸

About Me Heya! Glad you came across my profile! My name is Diandra and I’ve been a listener here for more than three years. I’m a mentor, verified listener, and someone you can reach out to anytime for support. While I’m not always available, I do respond as quickly as I can and I respond in a timely manner if you message me while my status is set to online. If my status is set to offline, I may take a bit longer to respond! If you’re in need of immediate help, feel free to go to Chat → Browse Listeners or put in a general request. Best of luck on your journey to recovery!Guests and Members If you need support for anything outside the categories below I will do my best to give you the best you deserve or find someone who can (I cannot offer support in community guideline exceptions, including but not limited to suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts, or if you are currently abusing humans/animals). My availability is scatteredListeners I spend the majority of my onsite time in the Teen Listener Room (TL) or in my PM's. I am a Quality and Support Room Mentor. Because I am in school, I may not always offer immediate chat help. This is because I do not want to begin helping you and then have to leave for reasons out of my control, but I will typically tell you if this is the case.Not Accepting New Mentees

New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time.  Trying to keep on top of PMs, but apologies if my responses are delayed! My availability varies based on work meetings, but generally I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------  Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out! You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me.  I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you. If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too. "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think" "Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself." "Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day." Much love to all, Anomalia

   --Hello I’m Rumple--Hello I am happy to see you reading my bio So a bit about me. I have a good sense of humor and love laughing with others. I enjoy spending time with my kids, all my pets and plants. I am also very crafty and creative in concerns to arts-n-crafts. In my free time I have Netflix going on and typically into my plants or doing 1-2 more things. I have had a very abusive past myself. I suffer at times with social anxieties as well as some self esteem issues. And of course the daily life stressor's we all have. I like to share my spare time here and listen to adults/teens on a variety of topics. I can show you empathy, understanding and validation. I however do not feel it's right to give advice to anyone. I feel that it robs you of choice and the freedom to figure out what's best for you.CHATS-I-DO-NOT-TAKEI do not take any sexual chats on any topic-nor do I take any relationship chats--MY TWINNIES--MusicalMagic - such a giving heart and so devoted to helping others hereHeatherBug-She is a blessing in disguisePassionatePeyton - wonderful person, is a great encourager and mod buddyfluffyUnicorns84 - my wonderful mentor buddyArwa - is a wonderful and active listener and my Teen TwinnieCaringBrit- She is wonderful to work with and funnyLucy- Has great insite and funny, good to chat withKrinkTheMellowUnicorn- Great motivator as well as teaching me code--THINGS I DO HERE--*** Adult/Teen Listener*** Teen Mentor*** Group Moderator*** Peer Support*** Internship Mentor*** Leader of the QandA Team*** CML for Mindfulness Team*** Forum Supporter*** Safety Team*** Forum MentorAlways Remember These Things.............Always Believe In Yourself    Accept everyone no matter what  Bad days do pass Always give yourself plenty of love,respect,care and passion

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! 💜

Welcome to my profile! I have been a Listener since June 2016. It has been a pleasure being able to support as many individuals as I have on this website. If you have the chance to get into a conversation with me, I try to establish time boundaries and personal boundaries. Our chats will always be based on what you want to talk about, excluding topics of sex, active suicidal ideation, or homicidal ideas. Due to site limitations, if you are in danger to yourself or others, I cannot continue to talk to you but I can link you to the proper resource. I am in my late twenties and I am an actual psych worker. I am also studying to be an actual licensed mental health therapist. Due to my limited availabilities, I am not able to have scheduled conversations nor be immediately available to those who need my support. I recommend if you need immediate replies or have an emergent issue, to discover a listener who is online by utilizing our search system. By the way, my favorite color is Blue. What's yours?
