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.

"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." ~ Bryant McGill 🌸🤍🌸Please note that I am currently on a study break and will be back in October. I will respond to messages when and if I can but responses may be delayed.  🌸🤍🌸Welcome to 7Cups! My name is Aliqui and I am just but one of the many listeners on this site, who are each trying to make the world a better place, one conversation at a time. ❤ 🌸🤍🌸Please note the following:  My replies to messages may be delayed as I am busy. Please remember that I always make it a point to reply, and I don't ignore anyone, as I am here to listen! My response time is usually 3 days.  I don't take chats about any sexual topics, LGBT+ and drugs and/or alcohol usage.  My chat times with members can vary between 30 to 60 minutes at any given time, however, I am unable to chat for more than one hour at a time. Please speak to me if you wish to chat again at another time. I unfortunately cannot support long term members at this time.  Please note that I will redirect you to another listener if I feel that I am unable to support you properly as I do not want to make anyone feel like they are unheard.  I don't accept listener requests for chats about personal support or any non-listener related topic, kindly login to your member account to do so.  🌸🤍🌸 My schedule does not permit me to be online on 7 Cups all the time. Please note my online status and what it means below: Online - I am currently available to chat, and will respond to messages promptly. Busy - I am currently talking to other members or am otherwise occupied. I will respond to messages as soon as I can. Offline - I am unavailable and offline. Please leave me a message, and I will respond as soon as I can.  🌸🤍🌸 "Listening is often the only thing needed to help someone." As a person who's had her fair share of ups and downs in life, I know that sometimes the only thing we need is not someone to advise or guide us, but rather a person who is willing to listen and understand. Pouring my heart out to someone at the worst of times in my life somehow managed to make me feel just a little lighter. I know very well what it is like to feel like you cannot express your thoughts and emotions and I do not wish this feeling upon anyone. I am hear to make people feel heard, supported and understood as best I can. I have never always had someone to help me in my darkest hour, but I want to be there as a friend to help others through theirs.  If you ever need a shoulder to cry on or just someone to chat to, I will try and be there for you. Feel free to send in a message whenever you need a friend.

I've worked myself out of some pretty hard and dark places so that I could one day try and help those I saw suffering along the way. Now I'm proud to say I feel ready to do so. I've had the opportunity to listen to and work with a wide variety of cultures and issues, and I'd truly see it as a gift to at least hear you out.

*PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ MY BIO BEFORE REQUESTING A CHAT* *PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE* *!!!!!* "People cry. Not because they're weak, but because they've been strong for too long."Hey you, I know it's hard to get out of bed right now. I know it's hard to open up, and talk. I know it's hard to be so angry, so sad, so hurt. I know it's hard to not feel a thing. I know it's hard wishing you weren't here. I know it's hard dealing with the loss.I know it's hard to put it down, to resist.  I know it's hard to feel so alone.I know it's hard dealing with that stress. I know it's hard to cope wuth that anxiety. I know it's hard to feel so ugly, so worthless.  I know it's hard to be unaccepted, to feel unloved. I know it's hard not having anyone. I know it's hard dealing with the memories. I know it's hard, to just keep breathing.   It's all so very, very, very hard. You're right, it is.  You've made it this far. You're here, you're strong. You're fighing. You should be so PROUD. You're reading this? Right.

A story that says: You survived."  "So, perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful." Battling a mental illness, or even suffering generally with your mental health is not easy. It has never been, and never will be.  No-one said it would be.  Having someone to talk about it with, can make it all better, in some small way or form.  That's why you're here, right? So someone can be there?  A listening ear, to support you, to care, and embrace you. See you for who you are and understand you.  My name is Alexia, and I'm here.  Here are some areas that I've struggled most, and still recovering from today: (I take chats on these, as well as many other topics. See above^)-Body Dysmorphia -Eating Disorders (Anorexia Nervosa/Bulimia Nervosa) -Depression -Self Harm -Social Anxiety -Family Stress NOTE: For specific trigger purposes, I do not take chats on general sexual topics/sexual abuse. Green means I'm online and available for chats or any personal requesrs. Any pm's will be answered in a timely manner. Orange means I'm online, but busy, and not able to respond to chats/accept personal requests at the point in time. Red means I'm currently offline/indefinitely preoccupied on the site.
