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.

Sorry not accepting member chats at this time other than regular members that I listen to. Please see here for a listener:  https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/I like to help others and like to be helped also.

If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood: Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal  Coping skills -  Alphabet of Stress Management and Coping Skills -  Adult Pleasant Activities -  Adult Pleasant Events -  99 Coping Skills  Books -  5 love languages and then discuss it-  Mindfulness for borderline personality disorder  Contacts -  Cancer-  Cahoots-  Doctor Reviews-  Doctor Specialists-  Acupuncture-  Chiropractor-  Dermatologists-  ENT – Ear, Nose, Throat-  Find A Hospital-  Find A Physician-  Find top rated doctor in my area-  GI - gastroenterology-  Gynecologists-  Doctor search-  What to expect from visit-  Hospital Reviews-  How To Find A Doctor That Accepts My Insurance-  How To Search For Doctors That Accept Medicaid-  Massage-  OBGYNs-  Ophthalmologist and Optometrists: Similarities and Differences-  Types of Doctors-  Urgent Care-  Find a Trusted Mental Health Treatment Center for You-  Hourglass-  Mission-  NAMI-  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 800-273-8255/Text 741741 (Text Start)-  Pleasant activities list-  Couples-  Find a therapist-  Open Source Counseling-  Optometrist-  Psychologytoday-  Types of Therapists-  List of suicide crisis lines-  befrienders.org - helps you find helplines by country-  imalive.org - an online crisis chat service, for anyone anywhere in the world.-  Psych Central Common Hotline Phone Numbers-  suicide.org - List of suicide helplines-  suicidestop.com - helps you find online chat, emergency numbers and crisis hotlines for many different countries in the world-  Warmline-  White Bird-  WomanSpace  Self-help guides -  7cups  Other Links -  Abortion-  Advice for Teens-  Alcohol-  Anger and Aggression-  Anxiety-  Bible Study-  Breathing Exercises And Techniques -  Detox Local-  Exercises for Relaxation-  Problems-  Problems: Causes, Tests, and Treatments-  Coping with Depression-  Crisis hotlines the recovery group-  Depression - A majority of people experience depression at least once during their lifetime, but they may or may not be aware of it. Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website. You can also talk to someone about your experience of depression by requesting to chat with one of our listeners.Millions of people suffer from depression everyday?

   --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

Hi, I'm Melody, and am a Verified Listener here on 7 Cups. I understand how helpful it can be to have someone listen and support you, in a non-judgemental way, in particular because it has helped me though difficult times in the past. I am not currently taking one-on-one chats, expect in rare circumstances where I may reach out to you.I have currently just joined The Lightship Team - where we are reaching out to people via social media. I am doing this in order to help reduce stigma, and to be supportive of those with issues I can understand because of my own struggles; and also when appropriate I may refer them to 7Cups if I feel that it would benefit them.

   Please book me here:                                             “Breathe. Let go. 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 have been honored to be a listener since June 2016. If I have the chance to support you in a chat, 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. If you feel like you're in crisis (Suicidal, homicidal, self-harming), please check out this helpful resource. Since the chat is for your support, I would prefer not to talk about myself. I am in my late 20s. I work long 12-hour shifts and do school full time so my availability can be limited at times. Due to this, I prefer to take general requests. If you need immediate support, I recommend you browse for a listener who is online or if you’re capable of waiting for a response, we can chat in an offline approach. If you have been specifically sent to me, feel free to PM me.Community Centered Moderator for Newbie Area, Healthy Living, and LGBTQListening Share Circle HostQuality Mentor Safety Flag Team MemberAL 2 Grader -  please do not message me asking me about your test.Chat Support + Peer Support + Listener Room Supporter + Listener Coach By the way, my favorite color is Blue.
