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.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my profile! I'm an empathetic listener who has lead an intrepid and impactful life. I would love to connect to understand some of your challenges, and perhaps even share some of my own personal learnings. I'm of South Asian descent, but have lived in half a dozen countries, so I have a lot of experience dealing with issues around culture and assimilation. My multicultural background makes me feel quite at home in Toronto, where I am currently based. Aside from that, I also have a keen interest in social issues, financial planning and questions of identity and existentialism. If you feel like I may be able to be of assistance to you, please feel free to send me a message. I promise I won't bite =)

We all have a story within us. A story that makes us laugh and cry. One that has it all; romance, love, hatred, discord, tragedy, joy, plot twists, comedy, excitment, thrill, mystery, horror, poetry... Well, whatever genre you'd be able to think of! I, as a humble human being, simply wish to read from the certain pages of each book made available to me; and perhaps be remembered as a happy chapter in a few of them.

Please note that I am unable to help those with self-esteem and related problems (i.e. negative body image, shame, feelings of worthlessness and social anxiety) and those who are struggling with self-harm. Due to a busy schedule, I am also unable to perform recurring chats at the moment. My proficiency is my knowledge of psychiatry, and lack of judgment or prejudice. My name's Katariina, I'm very easy-going and open-minded. The way I say things sometimes can be blunt, so if I'm coming across as insensitive, you're uncomfortable for any reason or starting to feel overwhelmed, please remember that it is helpful to tell me these things, and what you expect from our chat (it doesn't make you annoying). This is your space: you don't need to talk about anything you're not ready to; if you want to suddenly change the topic, that's okay, or if I'm not focusing on the parts that are most significant to you, don't let me lead you off-track! Getting everything off your chest is what's most important, we can always circle back to anything after. I might not be the best listener for the following topics:  Breakups (those looking to move on) and infatuations (e.g. crushes and love-triangles); bullying; eating disorders, body image, and self-esteem issues; envy (or jealousy); financial and work stress; self-control (including anger management); social anxiety; and unwanted/unexpected pregnancy. I do not accept personal requests that pertain to these problems. Please seek another listener that will better complement your needs.Topics I am comfortable talking about, but can help best with:  Mental illness (disorders) (such as but not limited to, anxiety; behavioural and social deficits, like those present in autism spectrum disorders/Asperger's syndrome (ASD) and other developmental disorders (please keeping in mind that I am not comfortable discussing self-esteem); bipolar disorder and mania; delirium and other psychogenic illnesses (neurosis); dissociative (and conversion) disorders, including dissociative identity disorder/multiple personality disorder (DID/MPD); antisocial/dissocial (ASPD), avoidant, dependent (DPD), sadistic, schizoid (SzPD) personality disorders; and psychosis-related disorders, including schizophrenia); sexual health and sex-related issues (such as but not limited to, sexual dysfunction (including lack of, and excess of, sexual desire, and premature ejaculation (PE)); sexual preference (including fetishes/paraphilia) and sexual orientation; and healthy (and satisfactory) sexual relationships); and trauma. I accept all requests dealing with the mentioned, sometimes even when I'm marked as busy. If you're wondering if I am the right listener for you and have any other questions, you're welcome to request me or leave me a message. If you see that I'm online, don't hesitate in sending me a request! If I'm offline, my inbox is always open and I will respond ASAP. :)Post-Scripts  - I accept casual/loneliness chats, but I'm not skilled at leading conversations.  - Those interested to know more about me: my Myers-Briggs personality type is ENTJ, I am a Buddhist (although not a very good one, as I'm always putting off practicing) and I believe that everything comes down to philosophy (so it's something I'm happy to talk about, whether it's making sense of a messy situation or questioning the meaning of life).

Hey there! I'm a listener here on 7cups. I'm a full-blown nerd, I love learning and experiencing new things, but I always make time for exercise. I'm open to chatting about most issues, including sexual, paraphilic and kink-related issues. I've also studied religion in an academic context and I'm open to talk about spirituality if that's an important part of your life. So that's me! Feel free to start a chat, especially when I'm online!

Hello, I'm Lin! I have gone through many chapters in my journey and still going through them now. I see each chapter as a lesson (opportunity) for me, whether positive or negative as they open and close. I learn to be more empathetic, positive, active and great listener/life coach. My goal is to help you visualize and feel into what you are going through, then we can figure out what you want to do from there.  I love people, running, singing, dancing, tai chi, cooking, creating new recipes, meditation, reading, talking and listening to people. So how about working together: multiculture/multilevel relationships, struggles, health and wellness and etc.   Thanks for viewing my profile.
