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.

Hi. I am glad you are looking for someone to speak to in 7 cupsoftea. That itself is the first step. I have been an active listener to both women and children. I enjoy reading and cooking. I also paint a little. I have gone through a lot of changes and challenges over the years. Emotional pains within the family are some of the issues i have worked on and moved on forward. I have come across many good listeners who have helped me accept and move on. I like to return the favour to others who need it as I believe in faith , love , paying it forward and the ripple effect.

Not accepting any new member chats at the moment. Please use the link below to find other listeners. Thanks for understanding. Browse Listeners Hello there. :) My name is Vic. I'm a 17 year old boy from India. I've been through a lot of issues in my life, ranging from family stress to depression and loneliness. Thankfully, I've overcome these issues now. And now, I wish to help you do the same.😊 It may seem like nobody will understand your issues, and people will judge you or make fun of you. But I promise you, I will be here for you, and I will try my best to make sure you feel heard and supported. You have nothing to be afraid of from me. I won't hurt you. ❤ I can relate with a lot of issues, and I keep learning and expanding my knowledge on different types of issues and disorders. I can support you best on the issues listed on my profile, but it doesn't mean I can't help you with other issues. There are some things I still have no idea about, and maybe, I might not be the right listener. Nevertheless, you can expect me to listen to you non-judgementally, and make an effort to understand your issue from your perspective. Reach out to me if you want to let out your feelings, or if you want to share a recent happening, or if you need a friend to talk to. I'm there to listen to you.  I hardly ever keep my status online, so reach out to me anyways, even if my status may be busy or offline. I don't keep my status offline on purpose usually, so if my status is red, then I'm most likely not on 7cups at the moment. My timezone is IST (ET + 9½ hours). I take chats that last for a maximum of 60 minutes. Sometimes, I may take them for less than 60 minutes also, depending on the situation on my side. I can extend the time if really needed. But, let's try to deal with your issue as soon as possible.😊 Please don't reach out to me if you want to pass some time, or if you're bored. I'm not here to entertain you. Please understand that I can't handle some extreme conversations. If I feel uncomfortable dealing with/listening to your situation, I will let you know, and refer you to another listener. I have no triggers, but I do have my limits.  Conversely, if you feel that I'm not a good match for you, or if you don't feel comfortable talking with me about your feelings, feel free to talk to another listener. I understand that not everyone will feel comfortable talking to me, and I can't help everyone who comes to me. I want you to get the best help possible 😊 Please don't reach out to me if your issue is related to sexual abuse. I'm usually not comfortable listening to such issues.≿━༺ Some of my roles on the site ༻━≾ ->Verified Teen Listener ->Peer Support ->Listener Sharing Circle Host - every Wednesday at 8AM ET ->Sharing Circle Host - every Wednesday at 1PM ET ->Room Supporter (Newbie Hub, Support Plus, Events Team) ->Listener Chatroom Supporter (A few more roles coming soon…)Some amazing friends of mine: ​​@lueurspace - My 7cups bestie, friend and equivalent of an elder sister.

"May your inside causes your environment to be beautiful." Hi there, I am fristo, I wish to see you realise and progress in a journey meaningful to you.About Me- I see life as an opportunity, as a vehicle, to realise my true-self. I live to explore and enliven my talents for the welfare of the world and connect to people's hearts. For me, nothing matters above peace, and I know that finding place in others' hearts is what brings me immense peace. So I look to spread positivity, smiles, encouragement, as well as look to create things that could lead people to a happier life. To this end, on 7cups, I worked on creating smile growth path (for both members and listeners) and listener learner path (for listeners only). And I want to use my lifetime to leave many valuable things for the world. About personal relations, I dream of very in-depth soul to soul connections, including kith and kin. I want to live the best human to human contacts possible in this world. Lastly, I value challenges in life. Facing and believing through challenges take me closer to my peaceful-self.   I don't usually take member chats, but if you feel reading my bio that I could be a good match for you, you may describe your problem and bit about yourself in few words, so that I can know if I can be a help to you. My amazing listener twins are: @HealTheHealer @FighterArpi [more will be added]A listener twin is any fellow listener with whom you feel very connected and who has agreed to be your listener twin – it needs to be mutual<3

Hi, it looks like you stumbled across my profile. Well, honestly, I don't really know what I could say in here. I do enjoy helping people in general, so this site is a great opportunity for me. I hope that you (the person reading this) will find me helpful. I don't really have a specialisation or experience with any disorder or illness, mostly because I wasn't really interested in those before but I'm willing to learn. And um yeah. That's pretty much it. Sorry in advance if I seem either selfish or ignorant, I'm really just trying to help.

Please read (at least first paragraph) before messaging me.Welcome, I'm glad you're here! Topics I DON'T take: career & financial stress, politics, religion, spirituality, cheating, polygamy, labels (sexuality and gender), chronic pain, disability issues. I am also happy with casual conversations or to keep you company! Or if you want some funny/cute YouTube videos.My chat style: I'm very patient, down to earth, I try my best to understand everything and prefer a friendlier approach than most listeners, but am mostly practical and logical. I don't give fake validation or tell you what you want to hear. I never disappear mid chat and reply as fast as possible. I am also quite talkative, so you can feel free to ask me anything!✰ I'm a very direct and don't like to beat around the bush, so please keep that in mind if you are very sensitive. I prefer a tough love approach to life. And don't be afraid to message me anytime even offline, I am very open and friendly! About me: My name is Alexis but you can call me Lex or Alex! I'm not a female. I'm 22, study medicine and worked part time as a nurse. I'm very extroverted and active with a lot of hobbies and obligations! I train gymnastics, play the violin, design clothes, paint, run workshops and I'm a big fan of horror movies and have a lot of pets. I love to travel and learn new things, meet new people. I've been through a lot in the past so I have quite the experience with many issues and people. I'm happily married to my husband and am a proud parent.Things I have experience in: relationships/people, depression, alcohol and drug addiction, apathy, violence, managing emotions, narcissism, guilt, kinks, incest (consensual), night terrors, parenting, anger issues.Things I DON'T have experience in: break ups, anxiety, lack of motivation, dwelling on things, LGBT issues, being sensitive, financial issues, strict parents, seeking validation/approval.✰I am fine with sexual, taboo and embarrassing issues as well, and won't judge you. But please don't make any advances towards me, ask me for my social media or demand a solution from me. I'm just a regular student doing their best, and not a licesened therapist.Thank you for reading, and I hope I can be of some help! FAQWhat's your gender really? - I get asked this so much. I'm male biologically but I just look and live as a woman. I didn't take any hormones and I'm happy this way.What's your sexuality? - I don't have one. I've only felt something for one person my whole life. Anyone else never interested me or will. And I don't see the point of labels.Why don't you take chats related to studies and career? - It's not something I'm really interested in or that knowledgeable. So it wouldn't be a good time for either of us.When can I message you? - You can message me whenever, and I'll respond when I can. But if you'd like a chat please ask me if I'm available first.Why don't you tell me what to do/give advice? - I'm not a professional therapist, I'm not the expert on you or your situation and it is against the site rules. So please don't demand answers or solutions from me.Can I ask you personal questions? - Yes you can, as long as you don't ask me information that could be traced back to me or reveal my full identity. Especially not social media.

(please read through everything before messaging me ) A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME Hello! I am Parvi or more commonly known as Orange, and I am 17 this year. I hope it's going great currently, but if it's not, my inbox is always open for a chat. In the past, I have gone through a couple of rough patches, but I have learned a lot about myself throughout the journey towards recovery. If you would like to chat with me, it is best if you could use my booking form here, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeG03YJxglhAK1MxnQN-DPHZfeBdxcCT_8vWHn1M1Tpm5gO9A/viewform?usp=sf_link. Thank you! Pronouns: she/herMY LISTENING STYLE  I enjoy asking questions. My listening style mainly revolves around open-ended questions. I love to help you figure out what you need by asking questions that would help. Sometimes we may not be a match, and that's completely okay. Feel free to just inform me if you feel that I may not be the best choice for you, and I would love to help look for another listener that could be a better match. During the chat, if you do feel that I may have mentioned something that isn't right, feel free to correct me on the spot! Also, please do not ask me for my personal information or any advice as those are against the guidelines. If you continue to ask me these things, I may have to end the chat after 3 warnings. MY WEAKNESSES As a person who prioritises quality over many other aspects, I think it's only fair for me to also address my weaknesses and how I am working on them. Firstly, I would like to address my response times. I do have quite an uncertain schedule, so I may disappear in the middle of a chat. I have also recently been facing many technical issues due to my unstable internet connection. On that note, I am trying to improve my response timings as well as I am working on my internet quality. If you feel I may have not responded for more than 48 hours, feel free to send me a second pm. I would also like to note that my status colour is a great indicator of my activity. It is usually on Orange, which means I am around Cups, but I am not taking any member chats. If you pm me while my status indicates I am busy, please do not expect a response immediately. Another aspect I am currently working on is my reflection. I may not be very good at this and if you are looking for a listener with great reflection skills, I may not be the best choice. I am currently practising more of my reflections skills in hopes that one day I could reach the point where I could say I am great at it. MY ROLES  Group Support/Engagement Teen Star Leader Support Team Teen Star for the Eating Disorder Sub-Community Teen Community Star for the Eating Disorders Sub-Community Safety Patroller Chat Supporter Community Moderator for Safety and Knowledge Sub Community Project Agent for Around the World Translations Team Leader for the Malay Language  Team Leader for the Teen Listeners Daily Check-ins Project Agent for the Teen Listeners Room Listener Verifier Doorkeeper Group Leadership & Dynamics Development Mentor (under the 7 Cups academy)STATUS MEANINGGreen - Available to chat with members/listenersOrange - Busy doing some work here on 7 CupsRed - Offline and not available to chatCHAT TOPICS I AM COMFORTABLE TAKING Depression, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Bullying, Family Stress, Forgiveness, Getting Unstuck, Managing Emotions, Panic Attacks, Sexual Health, Student LifeCHAT TOPICS I AM NOT COMFORTABLE TAKING Self Harm, Alcohol/ Drug Use, Chronic Pain, Disabilities
