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.

Hi, I'm here to offer my help and support to anyone struggling with the challenges that life often presents us with. I have overcome anxiety and chronic illness in my own life and am open to sharing any of my experience if it may help you. I'm also interested in spirituality/consciousness and philosophy if you find yourself asking some of the deeper questions in life and would like to chat about that type of thing.

Hello, Everyone. I am the Cosmic Ishan. I vow to practice giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration, and wisdom to fulfill my purpose to aim of attaining Enlightenment for the sake of all beings. I have come to this app because I have seen the suffering around the world and how everyday people are constantly ablaze with the suffering of self-harm, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. It's just my goal by helping others find peace and them finding peace myself maybe the world would be a better place. I am powerless to do any miracle so I give my best to help and be grateful even if one person finds their peace there will be more peace in the world. The world is filled with hatred, violence, and anyone who is suffering right now could cause suffering in the lives of people around them and their negative action would cause a cycle of hatred that will devour so many people in hatred. So if I help at least one person find peace, they can be a positive impact on the life of people around them and the world can be a little better place. That's my goal because I don't wanna make anyone go through what my Precious has gone through. I am not a Buddha or anything. All I can do is give them a conversation. I need to realize that there is suffering in the world and I will be a listener for the victims of those suffering who can join and get helped. But nobody can carry the world on their shoulders and erase the suffering of everyone, that is simply too heavy of a burden to carry for a single human being, but if we join together probably we can have a more peaceful impact. A simple easy act of kindness that is within my reach, maybe having created an account of a listener could be a good start for me. It won't save the world, but that's okay, it's still a wonderful thing and it'll bring a little joy for both me and the members we are trying to help. I will try to be as kind as I can to the people whose suffering and to understand what kindness really means. I will try to keep my heart open and to recognize the suffering of all the members; I will try to recognize what makes them suffer, which is usually pain. Part of my path is looking at these members' pain that makes them clam up, shut down, and collapse around their concerns. The other part is being inspired by the possibility of dissolving their suffering. My way of assisting others on the cessation of suffering is by being mindful; I must understand their words with care and consideration, I must tend to their actions with grace, and assure their thoughts do not become tainted. While I cannot make a mystical fix for the universe and make everyone causelessly blissful, I will spread the ways I understand from experience on how I overcome my Obstacles.  Knowing the truth is a domino effect because everything is interconnected and nothing is separated. To use this blessing existence of mine to attain liberation from habitual limitations of Mind, and to penetrate the nature of reality and experience it without the mind grasping the reaction with being hurter, To activates the functions of great compassion and wisdom so I can attain true understanding and freedom from suffering where I can share the experience with others. By reaching the state of complete bliss, liberation from the limitations and desires of the physical world, and the end of the cycle of pain and suffering.  It is a vehicle, after all. The taste of truth. A path to the pathless land I choose to walk.
