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.

In honor of my friend and mentor MusicalMagic, you are so so very missed. You are stardust born from supernovas that exploded millions of years past. May you dance forever with all the animals and friends on your beautiful island my friend. 💃🏻 🌻I'm here to listen- and i adore it. My listening style is one of being quite direct and honest- tempered with non-judgemental empathy and BIG Love. 🎓i have some formal psychology training- but in my opinion there is no substitute for real life experience.🌻🌻 🔥some important things:  ✋🏼i will not listen if you are abusing other people- including animals- or being abusive to me. Nothing wrong with venting and being angry- as long as it is not directed at me! i am not the right listener for eating disorders, weight management, current incest. If i feel i am not the right listener for you please know that it's out of respect for you deserving the best listener for your needs. 🙏🏼 ➡️If you judge people based on skin color, culture, gender, class, spirituality, sexuality etc. - then I'm not the right listener for you. 💞 i welcome ~sincere~ requests regarding sexual issues- especially from the queer communities and consensual adult bdsm, d/s and fetish communities. 👉🏼 This does not mean inappropriate sexual chatting- i keep it professional. 📆 i do not keep a regular schedule on 7 Cups. i am doing my best to respond to first time inquiries in a timely manner- and due to a site glitches i do not get all messages- while balancing my time with fabulous repeat members and everyday life. ⌛If i am not available and you need immediate assistance, please consider one of the many other listeners available. 🕯️i only do one conversation at a time. This allows me to give my full and undivided attention to you. 👓Me👓 Since i was a child all different kinds of people- from family to stangers at the bus stop - have gravitated to me to share what's on their mind-- their stories, secrets, current struggles, their hurt and joy, tears and laughter.... their truth. It is a humbling and gratifying phenomenon in my life. So when i stumbled upon 7 Cups, i don't think it was a coincidence.... 🌻i am very liberal. If it makes a difference to you, i am a pansexual girl (though i do view gender as a fluid spectrum- as i do sexuality). i have a healthy and unique sense of humor. i have been lucky enough to have lived amongst all sorts of cultures and subcultures, languages, countries and people. My synthesis is simple -  almost everyone just wants to be accepted and to belong, to be loved, not alone nor stigmatized, to be free, fed- and to feel good. We all want to belong.... feel loved and safe. 🌻i don't believe in assigning positive or negative values to emotions. Rather, i believe that all emotions are extremely important and that feeling them- no matter how difficult some may be- is a blessing. i can relate to wanting to feel numb or wanting to crawl out of your skin, to feeling alone, very isolated and misunderstood, confused and betrayed, to feeling overwhelmed by life.... But as i traverse the spectrum of emotions and events in my life, the hurtful and the joyous and all else- i must admit that some of the most painful ordeals that i have survived have been the most influential learning experiences and chances for personal growth. It is truly amazing what We can accomplish if We just talk and listen to one another without judgement or stigma. 🌻i draw my strength from the plethora of experiences and maladies i have had- and have- survived, enjoyed, and deal with still. Lay it on me.... -tcl #biglove 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

I have spent my entire career working with people who are, for the most part unsure of themselves, and everyone of them always declared themselves alone in that search for awareness and discovery. They weren't. The old expression rings true: no one in this life is an island!
