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.

Notice: I am sorry, but I am not currently taking any member chats at the moment. In the meantime, here are some amazing listeners, and I hope you will be able to find a listener that can support you best :)   If anyone asks me who I am, to be honest, I would not know what to say. I am a cis female that still questions her own sexuality. I am someone who cares about school, yet I don't. I am someone who loves friends, yet I am not exactly social. My interests are ever-changing, and everything is sort of all over the place. However, despite all the questions in my head about who I am, there is one thing I am sure about: it is my story. Every story is special in its own ways, yet sometimes our stories are not heard, and stepping outside our comfort zone to share is very hard. I am very proud to see that every one of you took the first step and made a member account whether it is for support or just for the sake of having one. I won't pretend to understand what you are going through because I truly don't. I have not been in your shoes and neither have I experience what you had, no matter how similar our stories may be. I won't promise you will feel better and that everything would get better because we really do not know, but from the bottom of my heart, I still hope that I can support you the best that I can. Some topics that I have dealt with are depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+, self-harm, sleeping well, loneliness, self-esteem, and many more in varying degrees. I would love to talk about these issues; however, please note that I will not be sharing my personal experiences with these issues because I would love to focus on listening to your story. My listening space is a safe place for those who would like to talk about any issues from DID to sexual health without any judgement. Each person is different, and my style may not exactly match up with yours, which is perfectly alright! There are also some other wonderful listeners that you may want to check out here! And welcome to my profile. I am Day/Dream, and I am very excited to get to know all of you :)   My availability: Green - I am online for both member and listener-related chats. Orange - I am only online for listener-related chats and may be in-and-out, but I will reply within 30 minutes. Red - I am fully inactive and logged out of the site. To everyone:  My private message response time is now 48 hours! If I do not respond within 2 days, please send me another message, and I apologize in advance. My account is also prone to several 7 cups bugs, so there will be times where I am unable to send messages, and I usually update in my bio when that happens. Additionally, please note that if I am around in a particular area (chatrooms, forums, or private messages), it does not mean that I will be active in another area. Thank you for understanding!Growth pathways: Love Yourself with BTS     Some things about me: My Pronouns are: she/her/hersAbout my interests: If you have seen me around, you'll know that I am super into music, and my taste in music changes every week and sometimes even daily. I love reading, and I can't express the happiness reading brings to me; it's definitely a place I go to release some emotions or maybe to feel some emotions. I am also a huge c/k-drama addict, and I am a multi-fandom k-pop stan. Something more general, I am very passionate about bullet journaling, animals, and I also swim.About my personality: I am an advocate/mediator (INFJ-T and INFP-T). I am a very straightforward and open-minded person. I am the kind of person that takes a while to open-up, so I may seem reserved. I can also always see the positive aspects of any situation and can understand multiple sides of every story.Some super awesome listeners: @avagracii - Avaaaa, my listener twinniee :) I want to give a huge thank you to her for always being there for me, especially the beginning of my listening journey, and being her wonderful self. She is really amazing and super compassionate and sweet, and did I mention she loves animals as much as I do?@cocoakrispies121 - Cocoaaa! I really don't know how to phrase it properly, but she is one of the most amazing people I met. We actually joined around the same time, have similar roles, and even take breaks around the same time. She is honestly super supportive, and I really can't say how delighted I am that I met her!   "there is no greater agony than an untold story inside you" ~ Maya Angelou

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. To me it seems humble and that you know that not everyone can be helped." 5) Apart from being a Verified Listener and an Intern Graduate, my other roles on 7Cups are OR have been: 5.1) Safety Patrol (flagging of inappropiate Listener profiles). 5.2) Member of the DJ Team (leaded by @Caringbrit). 5.3) Community Leader: Room Supporter -> Healthy Living Support Community; 35 & Over Community Community; Positivity & Gratitude Community  5.4) Forum Suporter. 5.5) Peer Supporter. 6) My 7Cups Diary:https://www.7cups.com/forum/GeneralSupport_28/DiaryEntriesConnections_1597/Mydiary_209578/ 7) Accepting Long Term Members!!8) Some useful Links: (thank you @versatileStrings1578 for your help on the update ofthe list!!)8.1) Inside 7Cups: 8.1.01) Listener Topic Library -----> Manuals on how to handle all types of chats, written by listeners 8.1.02) Listener Suggestion Box -----> Suggest ways to help improve the site, or how to address any problems you see (For any bugs or glitches, use this separate form) 8.1.03) Everything I need to know I learned from my bunny ------> If you ever get disheartened, refresh yourself with some leporine wisdom 8.1.04) Kane’s FAQ -----> Everything you could possibly ask for in a guide to this site 8.1.05) Farheen’s Guide -----> The best active listening guide there is.
