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.

And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.” ~Oprah Winfrey “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you! Shout loud, ‘I am lucky to be what I am!...’”  ~Dr. Seuss “You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”“The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be.”The Crimson Winter ~PBThe soft flakes that bow down Onto the shoulder that humbly awaits And the eyes that cease to see the light The ears that could never hear its shin shin Still- The snow so pristinely white, adorned in its crimson shade falls onto all The cold and the warmth jiggles down, like the Christmas jingle bells! The tweeting light illuminating even the brightest eyes of Keller. The hands that talk in braille, and dancing fingers painting fragile emotions- The winter brings us together, its virgin tranquility binding us all! Lethal the cold, as many say, and the penetrating darkness that follows. Humanly clan so insanely divided the crimsoned snow versus the massacre’s blood. Still- The snow so unified All from heaven fall onto the Earth erasing the enigma that eclipses love. The snowy bed onto which every finger Like the dancing flames in ecstasy! Summer noon is a spirited spirit, Why is winter the malice’s wonderland? Summer that diffuse us out from home, Winter’s warmth calls thee home! The chained hands around the Christmas tree, Makes winter the Crimson’s abode!Please book me here at:

I enjoy spending time with my kids, all my pets and plants. I am also very crafty and creative in concerns to arts-n-crafts. In my free time I have Netflix going on and typically into my plants or doing 1-2 more things. I have had a very abusive past myself.

I like to share my spare time here and listen to adults/teens on a variety of topics. I can show you empathy, understanding and validation. I however do not feel it's right to give advice to anyone.

I am unable to take member chats at this time.  "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."- Winnie The Poo" I believe that all people need something to do, something to aspire to, and someone to love. I believe that angels walk among us, because God is a really busy person-solving lack of world peace, world hunger, etc.  He sends angels to us even in human form to help the cause.  Look for them...now, look harder. I believe what you seek, you shall find. I believe that we all have something to learn from anyone and everyone that we meet. I believe that happiness is a journey and not a destination. I believe that kindness matters, always Oh well, that's just me.  I BELIEVE.  Enough about me, how about if we talk about you? Roles on 7 cups Trained Active Listener Verified Active Listener Global Forum Supporter Peer Support  Peer Pro Safety Patrol Team 7 Cups Welcome Committee Pop Up Room Co-host when needed Eyes to the ground.

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?
