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.

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

I know what it is like to feel alone and unheard. I want to be able to provide a safe place where others can let go and vent about things on their mind without being judged. Reaching out is hard and so I want to make it easier for others and to remind them that it is okay not to be okay. My sole reasoning for joining is to help others and make sure they have someone to talkk to and feel less alone. 🌼⚡️How I listen⚡️- I will be there the best I can. I will have fast response times, and I will validate you. I make sure you know that your feelings are valid and that no matter what you are going through, you are not going through it alone. I will help push you to find ways to cope and better understand your situation, but will not do the work for you <3 I will ask open-ended questions, and will give you the safe space you need. <3My special listeners  My Listener Sibling: @Listeningsarinn My Listener Go to: @EmmaE  My PS Twin @LoveLilly My TQS Twin @sophiasanae  My Hosting buddies: @Starmedia, @vivelespatates, @fairyava, and @roweerainn123 My Listener twin: @dajia215 Other listeners I truly appreciate and won't forget: @AnnaListens06 ,  @EvelyneRose , @whenitsdarklookforstars , @itssoren , @kieran000 , @starmelon7 , @calmingMermaid5761 💘I want you to remember that its okay not to be okay. It is okay to struggle, It doesnt make you weak. You all matter and the world shines brighter with you in it. Sometimes we have to take a step back before we can move forward and thats okay. Life can be tough, but you are even tougher. Recovery may be hard but it isnt impossible.  HOPE stands for Hold On Pain Ends. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are enough. Never forget that. 🔐"If you want to fly, give up on everything that weighs you down."- Buddha💞

🌺 I am really sorry, but I am unable to take new member chats at the moment. You can find a wonderful listener using the Browse Listeners page. I truly hope you find the support you deserve! ☕️ Hi you! Yes, you! The incredible human being who might be struggling and who deserves compassion and kindness. I may not have gone through the same experiences as you, but I can understand and acknowledge that you are in immense pain. It can be incredibly difficult reaching out for support, I am so proud of you for taking the first step to find support. Things may seem difficult or even impossible right now, but you are not alone. You matter, are worthy, and valid. 🌺 Hello hello hello! I am Hope or Jasmine, a teenager who has gone through the ups and downs of this roller coaster we call life. I have also been called the "Queen of Typos," so that probably tells you something about me! I adore coffee, listening to music, playing my violin, obsessing over Hamilton, watching TV shows, and learning about the world! I discovered this site over a year ago, and fell in love with this fantabulous community. I believe everyone has their own story, and I am here on 7 cups because I would be honored to listen to yours. ☕️ My listening style is a bit different from most, in the way that my messages are usually longer and reflect and provide my insight on what you said. It will still be your chat, and you will have the power to direct the topic to what you are looking to talk about. I do not take chats on eating disorders, alcohol/drug use, sexual abuse and sexual health at the moment, thank you for understanding! I unfortunately cannot wave a magic wand and solve any problems you might be having (It would be so cool if I could!) but instead I can provide a listening ear and be there for you. I strongly believe in kindness and respect which I always incorporate in my conversations! During our chat, I will also empower and validate you while creating a safe place for you to talk in my pms. It has lots of cookies, hugs, and any other treats or comfort items you want. 🌺 Projects/Roles I am involved with: Verified listener, Chat Supporter, Teen Chatroom Star Leader, Quality Teen Star, Community Teen Star, Teen Chatroom Star/Mod, Teen Forum Star, Teen Listener Coach, Global Moderator, Safety Patrol Team Member, Doorkeeper, Project Lead/Agent, DJ Team Member, Verifier, Peer Supporter, Team Lightship Team Member ☕️ This is a safe and inclusive profile for all. While there are some topics mentioned above that I do not take due to personal reasons, I will not ever discriminate or judge you. People of all genders, sexualities, race, religions, beliefs, and identities are welcome here! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my profile! I hope you have a lovely day! Click here for a surprise!
