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 I’m Rumple--Hello I am happy to see you reading my bio So a bit about me. I have a good sense of humor and love laughing with others. 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 suffer at times with social anxieties as well as some self esteem issues. And of course the daily life stressor's we all have. 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 feel that it robs you of choice and the freedom to figure out what's best for you.CHATS-I-DO-NOT-TAKEI do not take any sexual chats on any topic-nor do I take any relationship chats--MY TWINNIES--MusicalMagic - such a giving heart and so devoted to helping others hereHeatherBug-She is a blessing in disguisePassionatePeyton - wonderful person, is a great encourager and mod buddyfluffyUnicorns84 - my wonderful mentor buddyArwa - is a wonderful and active listener and my Teen TwinnieCaringBrit- She is wonderful to work with and funnyLucy- Has great insite and funny, good to chat withKrinkTheMellowUnicorn- Great motivator as well as teaching me code--THINGS I DO HERE--*** Adult/Teen Listener*** Teen Mentor*** Group Moderator*** Peer Support*** Internship Mentor*** Leader of the QandA Team*** CML for Mindfulness Team*** Forum Supporter*** Safety Team*** Forum MentorAlways Remember These Things.............Always Believe In Yourself    Accept everyone no matter what  Bad days do pass Always give yourself plenty of love,respect,care and passion

When you can't look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark. - Hatter; Alice in Wonderland. ✨✨✨✨✨Hello, this is Pals aka Tex, Rabbelion, Bun-bun, deformed Chihuahua, Paul etc etc (feel free to give me a name, if you wish).Firstly, for the uninitiated, I am the "bunny" of 7 cups (on public demand) xDI am pretty chill and relaxed so, by all means, approach me regarding anything as in, a member 1-to-1 chat, a listener 1-to-1 chat, some queries you might have etc. I love hanging out in rooms and meeting/talking to different people, so just drop me a PM (private message) anytime you want to have a non-serious, fun discussion, I won't mind. My roles include:this para is kinda tedious, full of roles and monotonous stuff, hence skip it if you want to.1. Verified Listener: you can find a 'Purple' tick mark beside my username and a 'Verified Listener' badge in my profile confirming it.  2. Safety Patrol member: you can check the same by the 'Safety Patrol' badge in my profile which lets me flag any inappropriate profiles. Please, do let me know if you spot anyone who you feel might hamper the safety and security of the site with an inappropriate profile/username or bio. 3. Sharing Circle buddy: as a former Sharing Circle host, I help new Sharing Circle hosts in conducting a smooth session as a 'Sharing Circle buddy'. 4. Listener Verifier: please confirm the same by finding a 'Listener Verifier Team' badge on my profile. 5. Safety Patrol Outreach Team member: I am part of this wonderfully constructed team of SPOT which allows me to conduct Safety Patrol training sessions. 6. Translator: 'Translator' badge on profile confirms the same. 7. Sharing Circle host: I am a Sharing Circle host as well; confirmed by 'Sharing Circle' badge on my profile. However, currently, not hosting any Sharing Circle. 8. Safety Awareness team member: confirmed by 'Safety Support' badge on my profile. 9. Adult Teen Listener. My Achievements include:1. 7 Cups Intern Graduate: I am proudly a 7 cups intern graduate with Honors. 2. Training guides completion: I have completed all the self-training guides, some of which are 'depression', 'Bipolar', 'Anxiety' etc, with sheer dedication. 3. Completion of Peer training guides: along with completing self-training guides, I am elevated to inform that I have completed all the peer training guides, from one to twelve.  (Note: this doesn't make me a Peer Supporter)4. Tulip badge: I am a 'Tulip badge' holder, if the one who recommended me for the same is reading this, then please know that I can never thank you enough. 5. Completion of AL tests: I am delighted to announce that I have all four AL completion badges, 'Graduate', 'Master', 'Scholar' and 'Rocket listener', which confirms that I have successfully completed all four Active Listening Tests, one, two, three, four, respectively. Before I proceed, let me tell you that I did not list the roles and achievements because I wanted to flaunt them or make myself feel important. That's not why they exist, at least not the roles. I am not a fan of listing them as well.  I did this simply because I have a poor memory so listing these in my bio will help me keep a track of it. Additionally, by listing them I wanted to let you know that anyone in search for information regarding any of the above mentioned roles/achievements can PM me, I would be glad to help you solve your queries on the same or provide you with any information I have. Which reminds me, I want to address a topic I have been meaning to speak about (I will try to keep it short, I promise):Your roles/achievements don't define your 'status', 'respect', or 'position' in this community. I request you to never ever sign up for a role or roles if you aren't interested or just want to feel 'important' in this community. You are important. Every single person in this community matters and is equally significant. You don't need to sign up for roles to prove it to yourself or to someone else. We all, together, make this community a better place and your roles/achievements/chats/cheers/rating don't/doesn't matter.          If you are really passionate about a team or want to join it because you are genuinely interested in it, then unquestionably join it. But please, please don't ever expose yourself to a burn out/compromise your mental health or sign up for a larger number of roles than you can handle just to list it down in your profile or to seem like more 'important'.         I don't mean offense to anyone. I respect people who work passionately on different levels just to keep this site working, I really do respect and appreciate their efforts.  Again: you matter, you are a salient part of this site. Every single one of you. Few lines I read somewhere which I absolutely love:"Even if you are not noticed, you are still valid.  Even if there is no one to read it, you should still write it.   Even if there is no one to hear it, you should still say it.   Even if there is no one to see it, you should still do it.   You are not measured by how people react to you."Lastly, a special mention of someone who has tagged me in their profile:@leafycup: thank you for mentioning me in your cute little bio, Leafyyy :p(P.S: for those who remember it, yes, my self-care has come to an end anddd I am backkk, to attack you guys with cookies and my nomming sessions xD)

Talking with someone might not resolves your issues but It helps you, it calms you down, let go of the burden. It help you clear the fog and see clearly, like a mindmap. It's all messy when it's in your mind with so much informations but when you lay them on a table, it's easier to organize.  Helping someone else makes me feel better. I'm also a talkative person, I can be professional and friendly, anyone you prefer ^_^ I don't take sexual or puberty or sexual related conversations
