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, and I hope you are having a wonderful day! If you are, then I'm happy for you! If you aren't, then I'm here for you. I know times are tough right now, but I promise things will get better, and I will be here for anyone if you need it. And please don't be afraid to reach out; this is a judgement-free zone for all of us to grow. Please approach me for support at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Please remember that no matter who you are, I genuinely wish nothing but the best for you! Love,The Good FairyP.S.  I am on the ace spectrum as well as a survivor of r*pe.  If you identify with either of the two, please come talk to me and I will 100% empathise and be here for you.  However, I have gotten quite a few members coming to me to talk about the act of s*x and an addiction to it; please understand that I am both inexperienced in and triggered by that line of conversation.  So as much as I wish for you to get the support you need, if the conversation goes down that line of thought, I think another listener can do more for you than I can.  Thank you for understanding.

I think life can be difficult sometimes, and it can help to have someone to listen to your concerns. I hope that my struggles and life experiences can be useful to someone else to get through the hard times.

Hi, I am a student psychologist and have been through many, many experiences. I got through them all and can help you get through it too! I have always been the shoulder to cry on for my friends ever since primary school, so I have bucketfuls of experience. I am caring and offer great advice, as my friends like to tell me. I also happen to be eerily correct about nearly most things. (:

When we go through hard times, sometimes the best help is simply in being heard, shown compassion, and understood. I recently returned to school for psychology with the hopes of one day becoming a licensed therapist. Being a Listener here on 7Cups is one of the ways that I put into practice what I'm learning.

*** Due to the amount of Members that I am currently supporting, I am unable to take on any new Members.  Thankfullly, 7Cups is jam-packed with awesome Listeners!  Blessings to you in your search for a great connection with one of them! Hi!  I'm Debbie and I love getting to know people! I've just recently left my 20 year career in Special Education.  While I loved what I did, I knew it wasn't exactly where I was supposed to be so I've gone back to school to gain accreditation to be a counsellor.  I'm very excited to be able to take on this challenge and even more so to put it into practice! When someone asks me for help, I feel a deep sense of honour and privilege to be welcomed into their lives and share in their journey of health and wellness.  I do not take it lightly and I hope that I am able to connect with and help those who take the chance to ask for help.  I think it takes a very courageous person to ask for help!  I have a busy life though, so I keep my practice to some firm boundaries with being available for 1.5 hours Monday - Wednesday between 2:00PM and 4:00PM Pacific Standard Time.  Blessings to you as you seek health and healing.
