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've been involved with 7Cups since 7th April 2020. I'm quite a busy person outside of 7Cups as well, I've got a life, too (shocking, right?). Please allow 24 - 96 hours before getting a response from me. If that time elapsed, please send another, as messages get lost. Please do NOT spam me in DMs as I wouldn't do that to you. Do NOT try to waste my time, either. Please be considerate and polite to me as I'd be towards you. When messaging me, please state the mentoring you will need and a brief description; I will be less declined to respond to "Hello", "Hi", "How's life", etc. Thank you. To listeners: Hello, listeners! I've been involved with 7Cups for nearly 1½ years. I'd like to say I know my way around. I'm a mentor for subcommunities and I'm a forum fanatic. I've been involved in forums for nearly a year now; I'm a [global] forum moderator and mentor so feel free to message me for support: guidelines, content approval, editing, deletion of posts, guidance, and how to post. I'm also on the listener verifying team - meaning I could give you resources to help you pass the mock chat. I'm able to conduct verifying mock chats to applicants, DM if interested. If you're a mentee, I'd like updates on how you're doing and your progress.To members: Hello, members! I've been a listener for over a year supporting you all in your life in some way, shape, or form. Unfortunately, due to my roles, I am no longer able to chat. This doesn't mean you won't have people to talk to! You're welcome to browse listeners and find one that is well suited for you. If you’ve got a question or concern about subcommunities or forums, don't hesitate to DM me. If it doesn’t relate to the above, I will not answer. If you are my mentee, I would like to receive updates on your progress and what you're up to.(For a complete and detailed list: Click >>Here<<)- Mentor / Teen Star: Global FM / TFS LDP Mentor Teen Community Star- Listener & Member Support LSC Project Agent (PA) SC Host (On-spot)- Team Member: Safety Patrol Safety Awareness 7Cups Translator (Spanish)- DoorkeeperTwin: @compassionateTree4567

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!

1) My response times are slow. Even when I am working on making them faster, if you talk with me please note there will be delays. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 2) I help myself when I help you. 3) This is my 7Cups Gmail e-mail address: (6/Feb/2010 07.09 Arg time: E-mail address deleted from my Profile page since I am not sure if it is OK to publish it here) - Feel free to drop me an e-mail anytime!!4) Some issues with my Username:(4.1) 08/Auguest/2019: On this day, I found out that "ThankYouForLettingMeTryingToHelp"  should be instead ThankYouForLettingMeTryToHelp. It seems first one is grammarly incorrect in English. I am sorry for my mistake. Thank you for pointing it out, @Nada and @DestroyingAngel .(4.2) 18/October/2019: On this day, a 7Cups Member told me this: "Your name is still incorrect. ThankYouForLettingMeTryingToHelp. We all know that if you are "trying" you are not doing. A man should not try his best, a man should do his best. Your name subconsciously sends a message that you will "try" which implies failure is the most likely outcome. ThankYouForLettingMeHelp would be much more appropriate and will send a positive message that you will help."(4.3) 14/November/2019: On this day, a 7Cups Member told me this: "Saying "trying to help" means you will do your best expecting nothing from those you encounter. The way your username is written seems perfect.
