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 everyone, I'm Paradise! I'm an Academy Ambassador here at 7 Cups, along with many other roles. I try my best to contribute positively to the community. Unfortunately, at this time, I do not have the time to take up regular member chats. I do have some occasional times that I might be able to, but my status will be green at that time. But otherwise, my other life commitments restrict me from responding in a timely manner.  Things that you can PM me about but are not limited to: - 7 Cups Academy Programs - Becoming an Adult-Teen Listener

Hello, I am here just to listen and help. I hope my words bring you some comfort and motivation to move ahead. Just know that I'm all ears when I'm with you. I will try my best to create a "happy place" for you where you feel safe. 7 cups is a safe place, a no-judge area. It's on you how much you want to or doesn't want to share. I understand how difficult it can be to trust someone online and I'll make sure that we work together towards building the trust and hence listen to and support you in whatever way I can.  Stay Motivated! Stay Strong! Stay Safe! P.S. I do not take any Sexual or inappropriate chats. I personally never use any offensive or abusive language and will expect the same from you as well. If I feel uncomfortable, I will have to block you after 3 warnings.  Thank you for reading! Have a great day ahead!

Welcome to my page 😊 ✌  Who am I?My name is Gyda, I am twenty-two years old and I’m proud to be here and do my bit to help the world, one little deed at a time. I have been to lots of places and learnt many things, and all my life choices have led me to this place. I’m a passionate volleyball player and an ex-young athlete, and would like to infect everyone with my positivity ❤︎ I’m here for those deep chats and those light hearted ones.   Music is extremely therapeutic, which is why I consider it one of the most important things in my life. My favourite artists are PVRIS and the band The Neighbourhood. I’m a massive tattoo fan because I see this as a way of personal expression and I also support animal rights with all my heart. One of my biggest rolemodels in my life right now is MØ because she believes in humility and encourages people to fight for what they believe in.   Due to nature of chats, I only accept chats related to the following topics:  ★ Anxiety ★ ★ Borderline Personality Disorder ★ ★ Drug and Alcohol use ★ ★ Eating Disorders ★ ★ Self-harm ★  I accept those topics as I have my own personal experience in them and I am not as helpful if I were to take a chat outside my experiences. I’m the ‘B’ on the LGBTQ and also willing to chat to you about coming out or any other light-hearted things.  Please get in touch if I sound like a Listener you’re after, I don’t bite.  What I do  My current involvements are somewhat limited, but I believe we all have a role to play, big or small, and I try to do everything with a lot of passion. My roles:☕ Global Mod ☕ ☕ Quality Mentor ☕ ☕ Peer Supporter ☕ ☕ Verified Listener ☕ ☕ Safety Team ☕Reach out to me if you ever need moderating or peer supporting if you’re a Listener!  Member and Listener info Members – Please consider my chat topics before you message me, I don’t take pleasure in turning away chat topics I am not comfortable with, but I will try my best to find the right Listener for you! If you do have a chat within my topics, please send me a message briefly explaining what’s up. I slot my conversations for 60 minutes at a time, this helps both me and you, since I often lose my focus and attention, but I am more than willing to converse longer the more often we talk.Listeners – I am a Quality Mentor, and naturally I am available to help you out with any Listener-related issues. As a global moderator I am always available for active moderating, as long as I’m online. As a Peer supporter, I’m here to listen to you, but keep in mind if it’s a personal issue, do relog to a member account 😊  “Freedom is being able to live with the consequences of your decisions” Gyda

Welcome to my profile!✨A litte about my crazy journey ✨I joined 7 Cups at the end of 2015. I joined 7 Cups as a listener to help others struggling to find their purpose in our crazy world. However, 7 Cups became much more than just helping out amazing members. I decided to dedicate myself to helping listeners, as well. Since 2016 (on and off for breaks), I joined many leadership roles and projects. Currently, I am a Group Mod (for Depression Support, Teen Support and Self-Harm Recovery), Peer Supporter, Doorkeeper, Quality Mentor (Teens and Adults) and Chat Supporter. I am also proudly apart of these teams/projects: Active Listening 4 Grader, Listener Coach and the Anonymous Evaluations Team. I am an Adult-Teen Listener which means I can support both teens and adults! I am also a proud holder of the 2017 PB Award which means that I showed that I was a huge believer in the 7 Cups mission.✨ A little about me ✨I am 19 years old and currently reside in the sunny state of Florida! I am in college pursuing my degree in Social Work so I can become a therapist. I am a huge advocate for mental health as I personally struggle with Anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Depression. I also have personal experience with Chronic Pain, Eating Disorders, Grief and Self-Harm. I am also a suicide attempt and ICU survivor (please note that although 7 cups is not a crisis resource, there is support out there. Click this for resources).I believe everything happens for a reason and that these battles we fight only make us stronger.✨ Topics I can best help with ✨I try to help with most topics but due to personal experiences, I can best help with Anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bullying, Chronic Pain, Depression, Eating Disorders, Grief, Loneliness and Self-Harm related chats.✨ Topics I do not take ✨I do not take any chats related to sexual manners or relationship chats.✨My Availability ✨I am in the EST timezone and I am usually the most active around 9AM-10PM EST. I will reply to messages as soon as I can! I am taking chats on a limited basis.✨ Resources ✨Crisis ResourcesLive Through ThisProject SemicolonRunaway Hotline✨ Quotes that inspire me ✨"Everybody wants happiness. No one wants pain. But you can't make a rainbow without a little rain." "Even the darkest nights will end, and the sun will rise again." "When "i" is replaced with "we" even illness becomes wellness." "My purpose is greater than my pain." "Just ride the wave."✨Tribute ✨My new journey on here is in Amelia's honor. Rest in Peace, Amelia 💗 Gone but never forgotten.
