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.

You can check the updates threads of each test here AL2 Updates, AL3 Updates, AL4 Updates to know when badges have been last updated.I'm a doorkeeper so I can open/close rooms per request. Feel free to message me at any time. ---------------------------------------------Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.  I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here. I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my close ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. If you are around here and have any question or need someone to chat or you are a new listener and want a long term mentor to cheer on you and be happy for all your success - I'm your gal. Much love, Mel.

Hi there. I'm a listener on here who likes to devote time to one person at a time. I try my hardest to make sure that you feel better, even just by a small amount. If you are depressed, going through a break-up, you have anxiety issues, or just going through a tough time, or maybe you just want someone to talk to, it doesn't matter, just do yourself a favor and try to talk about it. You will feel better. I also work my hardest in putting myself in everything I say, I don't want to sound like the broken record you may have been hearing over and over. You're talking to a person, it should feel that way. So if you still want to talk to me, send me a message, whether I'm online or not. If I don't respond right away don't stress, I'll make time for you.

Hey, I'm Justin. I've been on this site for a while now. I know how painful life can be and I know what it brings. I myself have been through some rough times but I've never let that stop me. You see, I'm a firm believer. What do I believe in? I believe in life, in the human condition. I believe that we are all here for a reason. That we aren't without purpose. I believe that to live life you must live all of it, not just the tidbits of pleasure and happiness. Sometimes life isn't fair. Sometimes we find ourselves in the darkest corners, far away from the light. Perhaps it's the case that we can create our own light. That we can find a way through the troubles of life together.I cannot claim to be able to help everyone. However, I can claim this. I will do all that I can to help you. It would be my pleasure to bring you peace and hope to your life. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Sometimes I may be unavailable to chat. If this is the case I do apologize, I can tell you however that if you allow me the time and your patience that I will get back to you and we will make something work. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------About Me:I'm Justin. I'm 25 years old and I'm originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Currently I am living in North Carolina though. Outside of my life as a listener I am a college student, a writer, and many other things. The thing I enjoy most in life is meeting people. It brings me great pleasure and happiness to socialize with people. I like to learn about the different ways that people live. It gives me structure for my perspective. I find that the more people I meet, the more I understand the bigger picture of our existence. Outside of that, I enjoy writing which I previously mentioned, playing video games, and television. I watch quite a few series on Netflix, Showtime, Starz, HBO, you name it. TV is one of my passions. As a person, I try to live a life without judgments. It can be hard sometimes but I consider myself to be fairly open. I've never been too great at describing or introducing myself though, I try to let my interactions with people dictate to them who I am. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I hope that you have enjoyed my profile. If you would like to talk about anything at all, please don't hesitate to message me. As always, stay well.

"I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do, just call my name, and I'll be there." Thanks for reaching out! That is not easy to do and very brave. I am a trained Verified Listener, member of the Listener Verifier Team, and Peer Supporter. I will not judge you, as I have struggled with being judged. You are welcome to talk to me about real things you face, and I will do my best to ease what can be such great pain. I take most subjects, including specific ones such as airplane/flying anxiety, as I have a lot of experience with flying. One subject I am not great with right now is the fear of death of loved ones. My only requirement in any chat is that it remain unabusive and appropriate. And I like sharing music and lyrics, too! I like a wide variety of genres. :) Music is therapeutic and can help us articulate our own feelings!"In our darkest hour, in my deepest despair, will you still care? Will you be there? In my triumphs and my tribulations, through our doubts and frustrations, in my violence, in my turbulence, through my fear and my confessions, in my anguish, in my pain, through my joy and my sorrow, in the promise of another tomorrow? I'll never let you part. And you're always in my heart."  That's one of my most favorite songs :)"Life's so dark when every day is a struggle / It's not your choice, there's no escaping it / Don't let your mindset become what controls you / Speak right now, and make the choice to grow / Everybody gets high, everybody gets low, life can be such overdose / Up on the mountain, I see down below, it's easy to lose yourself, I know / Can't hear what you're shouting, I'm deaf to your show / It's easy to lose your self-control in the in-between / Why go out and see the world on fire? I won't let pain get in my way, I can't have silence claiming me, we have strength in numbers to get us through the day / This is a war we're gonna win."I'm happy to share all these songs with you and more! Sometimes when we don't feel "seen" or "heard," hearing a song can do that for us. My spirit twins are Kristen Wiig, Kristen Bell, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Underwood. If I could be friends with them, I would jump at the chance! :)
