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.

I am a 36 year old male with a masters degree level of education. I live with a physical disability which requires me to communicate with people about my needs on a daily basis due to my physical limitations. My physical disability provides me with insight on being "different" and how others react to that around me. I have always loved listening to others, and often find they come to me about issues they are going through in their lives whether it be to talk about relationships, stress in life, family troubles, or many other things. I do my best to be there for them.

*PLEASE READ MY ENTIRE BIO BEFORE REQUESTING A CHAT*  *PLEASE READ IT* *SERIOUSLY..READ IT!* "The nature of humanity, its essence, is to feel another's pain as one's own, and to act to take that pain away. There is nobility in compassion, a beauty in empathy , a grace in forgiveness." - JOHN CONNOLLY Days can be hard. I know they can be. The ones where you can't get out of bed.  The ones where you just can't deal with your family.  The ones where the whole world is on your back.  The ones where the number on the scale hates you.  The ones where the grief is overwhelming.  The ones where the anxiety is driving you mad.  The ones where you can't put down the blade.  The ones where your bed feels like your only home.  The ones where you feel all alone, and the world seems so big.  The ones when you don't know which choice to make. The ones where no one seems to understand.  They're so so so very hard. I know they are.  That's why you're here right? So those days can be a little less hard. So on those days, someone can be there.  So someone can listen.  My name is Alexia, and I would love to be that person for you. Eighteen years old, with a lot of life experience in major areas. See for yourself in the list below.  Why don't you reach out? Here are some things that you should note before you do:Green means I'm active and ready to respond to chats. Requests will be taken in a timely manner once they're sent out. Once I have started a chat, I will adjust my status to busy so that you, my member are my priority within that time frame. Orange means that I am in a scheduled chat with another member, or in another session with a member. Due to this, any requests sent out during this time will be accepted, but I may not respond in a timely manner, or at all, depending on circumstance. Red means that I am currently inactive, and most likely busy with school. As such, personal requests will not be seen or responded to during this time. YOU CAN BOOK ME HERE: https://alexia-7-cups-listening.youcanbook.mePLEASE NOTE:  Once you have booked me, send me a message on here, so I know your appropriate member username. I use US/Canadian Eatern time.  I look forward to all of your chats❤  Thank you for reading ❤

Hi, I'm Jason! Every day there are millions of significant events in the world: deaths, births, marriages, divorces/breakups, abuse, buying a house, losing a house, trauma, fired from a job, got a new job, health issues, etc. But for the people involved the events may be new or rare, and it can sometimes be stressful, painful, overwhelming, etc trying to navigate it.  I want to do what I can to help you feel less alone and isolated, and help you understand that there's an empathetic and active listener who is in your corner. Reaching out isn't always easy, and I'm proud of you for taking this step!

(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!! 😄🌻🌈🌸
