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.

This is a test, a test to see if you are a human. Please note if something applies to you:Have you ever eaten a booger long past your childhood?Have you ever made a small, weird sound when you remembered something embarrassing?Have you ever purposely lower-cased the first letter of a text to come across as sad or disappointed?Have you ever ended a text with a period as a sign of aggression?Have you ever laughed or smiled when someone said something unpleasant to you, and you wondered the rest of the day why you reacted that way?Have you ever put on a pair of pants, and then realized much later that there was a loose sock smushed up against your thigh?Have you ever tried to guess someone else's password so many times that it locked their account?Have you ever had a nagging feeling that one day you will be discovered as a fraud?Have you ever hoped that there was some ability you hadn't discovered yet that you were just naturally talented at?Have you ever broken something in real life, and then found yourself looking for an "undo" button in real life?Have you ever marveled at how someone you thought was so ordinary could suddenly become so beautiful?Have you ever stared at your phone, smiling like an idiot while texting someone?Have you ever subsequently texted that person the phrase, "I'm staring at the phone, smiling like an idiot"?Have you ever been tempted to, and gave into that temptation, of looking through someone else's phone?Have you ever had a conversation with yourself, and then suddenly realized you're a terrible person to yourself?Has your phone ever run out of battery in the middle of an argument, and it sort of felt like the phone was breaking up with both of you?Have you ever thought that working on an issue between you and yourself was futile, because it should just be more natural than this, or this is supposed to happen just naturally?Have you ever realized that very little, in the long run, just happens naturally?Have you ever woken up blissfully, and suddenly been flooded by the awful remembrance that someone had left you?Have you ever lost the ability to imagine a future without a person that no longer was in your life?Have you ever looked back on that event with the sad smile of autumn and the realization that futures will happen, regardless?Congratulations, you have now completed and passed the test. You are human.Want to know who has the best 7 Cups profile? Click here!

*Currently not accepting requests**I can only provide support for my listed support categories - please let me know if you are looking for support in something else and I will let you know if I can help*Hi there! :) I'm really glad that you have come across my profile.My name is Ash and I'm a university student. I want to help, and although I may not be able to all the time, I do promise to listen and I do promise to care.I love reading, writing and meeting new people. I really wish I had someone to talk to, especially when I was younger, so I don't want anyone else to be in a situation where they feel like there's no one there for them, because I am (and many other Listeners are) here for you. Please feel free to send me a message."The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." - Nelson Mandela
