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.

*Please read my bio before proceeding to message me*I can support you on the following topics: Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Domestic Abuse, Forgiveness, Grief, PTSD/Trauma, Self-harm, and Sexual Assault. All of my chats are 1 hour long and my availability depends on my days off from work. I require scheduling so we can meet on the days I am free.I’m Jenna and I am in my late 20s. I have 4 dogs and 5 cats which basically means I own a zoo! I've been here for 7 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. I enjoy piano and violin music, tacos, Netflix, being outside in nice weather, sleeping, and drawing. I would say my conversational language is assertive and logical in a confident aspect, but I'm still compassionate and empathetic.

Welcome to my profile! I have been a Listener since June 2016. It has been a pleasure being able to support as many individuals as I have on this website. If you have the chance to get into a conversation with me, I try to establish time boundaries and personal boundaries. Our chats will always be based on what you want to talk about, excluding topics of sex, active suicidal ideation, or homicidal ideas. Due to site limitations, if you are in danger to yourself or others, I cannot continue to talk to you but I can link you to the proper resource. I am in my late twenties and I am an actual psych worker. I am also studying to be an actual licensed mental health therapist. Due to my limited availabilities, I am not able to have scheduled conversations nor be immediately available to those who need my support. I recommend if you need immediate replies or have an emergent issue, to discover a listener who is online by utilizing our search system. By the way, my favorite color is Blue. What's yours?

Hello! I'm so glad that you're here! I'm currently completing a Psychology degree within the UK and working for a mental health charity- I definitely do not have all the answers, but we can muddle through together and I'll try my best to support you in anyway that I can:)    We've all been through stuff - you, me, everyone! But that doesn't mean any of us should suffer in silence. If you have an issue, no matter how big or small, feel free to send a message:) If I'm not online, send me a message and we can set up a time to connect! So glad that you're here!

 Heyy there, Welcome to 7Cups and my little profile!  ^_^  It's a very brave step of yours to come here to speak about yourself and find answers.  Lets hold our hands so I can guide you first through my profile and then we sail together our journey over here till the very end and I won't leave you until you're satisfied with my service just like BAYMAX! It's really nice that we met here! And think of me as your close friend; I'll really like to listen to you and help you in any way I can! Feel free to talk with me anytime! Even if I am offline, just drop a text; I will try my best to be there besides you SUPER SOON!! #WARNINGS:1. YOU'RE ABOUT TO SIGN UP FOR FREE UNLIMITED VIRTUAL HUGS!!!!!! 2. YOU WILL HAVE A LISTENER WHO WON'T BE LEAVING YOUR SIDE EVER! NO MATTER HOW LOW YOU FEEL AND GIVE UP ON EVERYTHING.3. YOU ARE BASICALLY GOING TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR "BESTEST FRIEND EVER" WHO IS COMPLETLY NON JUDGEMENTAL, SUPER CARING, LOVING AND AFFECTIONATE! 4. IN SHORT YOU'RE NEVER EVER GOING TO BE ALONE AND ALWAYS LOVED MY BEST FRIEND!Okay! Okay! I guess enough self praises about me already. xD Also needless to say I'll be professional  to the core!  #BASIC INFO ABOUT ME:NAME:   So I'm CHINMAY but you can call that or 'Chin' or "Chinu' or 'May' or basically anything you wish to say!GENDER:  I prefer to be a listener with gender based on your requirement! If you feel free to open up with a FEMALE listener, I'll be a female listener; If it's a BOYS talk, I will be a male listener. Same goes for my AGE!*AGE AND GENDER HINT FOR SMARTIES - IT's SCATTERED SOMEWHERE IN MY PROFILE ONLY. GO BE SHERLOCKS! :PLet's break the old boundaries that only a person from our OWN GENDER can understand us and promote EQUALITY!!!!  P.S. I didn't mention LGBTQ+ because I feel I honestly won't be able help beyond a point, but if it's an 'OPEN EAR' and 'FRIEND' you need, I'll also be an LGBT for you! WHY I BECAME LISTENER: I felt sad of how our life normally revolves around a selfish circle of rat-race and just looing after self. Also I love helping others, making new friends and listening to them; may it be friends, animals and strangers! So when I came to know about 7 Cups, I actually found my SECOND HOME!!!   BIO:Blogger, Writer 📑, इंजीनियर 🎓. Atheist, but finding God. 😇 Introvert, Social Anxiety, Shy, Weird, Nerd, OCD 😰. Pets 🐕, Social Causes 🌈, Music (All) 🎶, Games 🎮, Foodie 🍗. Sarcasm 💙, Curiosity to know everything 🤔, Infatuated Dreamer 😴. Travelling 🌍, Capturing WORLD in my Camera <3, Astronomy 🌌. ​​​​​​Zombies & Ghosts 👻, Marvel & DC 🔥, Coffee & Tea ☕, , Old School 👵 blah blah blah... P.S. #YOLO so want to enjoy life to the fullest while also helping others. 😌       And if you ever feel I am offline and really want to talk with someone, feel free to  these COOL KIDS in the link below!!!        YOU'RE SPECIAL, CLICK FOR LOVE!            CURRENT ROLES:     7CUPS Intern      Safety Patrol Team   *applied*         Your BFF         LANGUAGE:  Apart from the ones I speak, if you still need to converse with me (due to inavailability of listeners or you just wish to talk), I use Google Translate, so language would never be a hurdle in our chats!        My 2 Cups On 7Cups:  *NARRATING LIKE A CENTURIES OLD BOOMER TO THE NEW GEN KIDS*"So in our days 7Cups was 7Cups of Tea and we had different leaders like Washington was once in US!  We used to have something called 'Feed', Yes! you read it right! Feed! We could post and share so many awesome, beautiful, colorful and inspiring posts... There was a followers system, so as 7cups can't save old chats, it was easier to connect with old members as they could be traced in followers menu"Also I lost lots of Listener buddies who I would like to pay respect as I finally end my bio xD : "My young lion cub, and my other side! ": @Chin96 "My only past friend I got in touch who is also a beautiful soul! ": @Gracey     "My Listener twin who has almost everything similar to me and I am glad I met her here accidently!" : @ElectrifyingSoul26     "My Sweetest, Kindest friend and Mentor for life!" : @myNightSky     "My Bestiee for life" : @MyNameIsSelini        "Also currently looking for a Listener Twin. If you came this far and see this kindly adpot me :P"    *P.S. Still sticking to my 5 years old teenage written bio so kindly accept the immature cringe! *

“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra Reaching Out isn't an easy thing, take your time and there's no right way to do it, we will just have to see how it goes from here As a listener I try be patient but I will be honest and let you know when I do not see myself fit to offer enough knowledge/ listening skills on certain topics. And I will politely refer you to another listner with better experience for a particular topic that I may not be familiar with.
