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.

Rhoen or William (He/Him or They/Them) โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹ย I really enjoy listening to others, and I am happy to do all I can to help. I love talking about LGBTQ experiences as I am a transmasculine person and I personally understand the struggles that members of the LGBTQ community have to go through daily. I'm here for you guys always. Feel free to send me a message if you ever need to talk. XOXOย  I'm usually not on, but if you send a message, I will get it as a notification so just send a message if you want to talk.ย  Remember you're valid, and that LGBTQ rights are humans rights.

My name is Shneur, and I'm currently a Yeshiva (seminary) student working on active-listening skills and trying to help out others :). I really want to work in clinical therapy, specializing in helping individuals suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I personally know how devastating the disorder can be, and I want to do my part to ease the pain of those suffering from it. I'm a proud Orthodox Jew, but I'm still completely comfortable talking with anyone of any faith, or lack thereof :). I love jogging, studying the Talmud, hanging out with my friends, reading fiction novels, learning new languages, playing Settlers of Catan, and watching shows like Cobra Kai and The Crown. Looking forward to chatting with you! Feel free to leave me a message to chat or set up a time to chat :). Feel free to call me Shneur, Z, or ShneurZ - whatever you feel comfortable with!ย I currently speak/partially speak/am learning the following languages to some degree/fluently (I love casual chats about linguistics, so if that's an interest of yours, I'd love to hear about it!). As a result, I can provide full support in the first two languages (English and Hebrew) and minimal/technical support (such as directing you to a listener who speaks your language fluently) in the other six:I speak English fluently!

(Esperanto) I specialize particularly in discussing anxiety, spirituality, student life, relationship stress, and family stress. Additionally, I am experienced in chatting about OCD as someone who has it and understands how it feels.ย OCD can be an extremely debilitating and frightening disorder - if you feel you might be or are suffering from OCD/obsessive thinking, I would be happy to chat about it with you :).ย  ืฉื™ื”ื™ื” ื›ืœ ื”ืคืขื™ืœื•ืช ืฉืœื™ ื›ืืŸ ืœื–ื›ืจ ื ืฉืžืช ื ื—ืžืŸ ื“ื ื™ืืœ ื‘ืŸ ืืจื™ื” ืฆื‘ื™ ื–"ืœ ืฉื ืคื˜ืจ ื™ื•ื ืœ"ื’ ื‘ืขื•ืžืจ ื”'ืชืฉืค"ื ื•ืฉืชืชืขืœื” ื ืฉืžืชื• ื‘ื’ืŸ ืขื“ืŸ ื‘ืžื ื•ื—ื” ื”ืžืชืื™ืžื” ืœืฆื“ืงื•ืชื• In Memory of Nachman Daniel ben Aryeh Tzvi z"l, who passed away on April 30th, 2021 - May His Memory Be BlessedImportant Things to Keep in Mind- You willย notย face judgment of any kind in our chats - I will respect you and your feelings - I will ensure your confidentiality - none of your details or the content of our chats will ever be traceable back to you, and you can remain 100% anonymous - You are free to share anything and everything you like - save for expressions of bigotry and intolerance, inappropriate sexual talk, and intentionally offensive uses of language - I will not be providing advice - this is because onlyย youย know your situation best.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -ย ย President Theodore RooseveltEbla estas fortecon trovi en ฤ‰iuj el ni, iuj jam ฤin trovis, aliaj ne, sed brulas fajro en ฤ‰iu homo ke ne neniam estingiฤos, eฤ‰ ne povas oni ฤin senti brulanta - Strength can be found in all of us, some have found it already, others not, but a fire burns in every person which can never be extinguished, even if you can't feel it burningืคื™ื ืช ืขื‘ืจื™ืช ย ืฉืœื•ื ื•ื‘ืจื•ื›ื™ื ื”ื‘ืื™ื ืœืคืจื•ืคื™ืœ ืฉืœื™! ืงื•ืจืื™ื ืœื™ ืฉื ื™ืื•ืจ, ื•ืื ื™ ืชืœืžื™ื“ ื‘ื™ืฉื™ื‘ื” ื‘ืืจื”"ื‘. ื“ืขื• ืฉืืชื ืœื ืœื‘ื“ื›ื ืœืžืจื•ืช ืื™ืš ืฉืชืจื’ื™ืฉื•, ืžืคื ื™ ืฉืื ื™ ืื ืกื” ืชืžื™ื“ ืœื”ื™ื•ืช ืฉื ื‘ืฉื‘ื™ืœื›ื! ืœื”ื’ื™ื“ ืงืฆืช ืขืœ ืขืฆืžื™ (ื›ื“ื™ ืฉื”ืฉื™ื—ื•ืช ืฉืœื ื• ื™ื”ื™ื• ืจืง ืขืœื™ื›ื!), ืื ื™ ื‘ืŸ 18 ืจื’ื™ืœ, ืœื•ืžื“ ื‘ื™ืฉื™ื‘ื” ื•ืžืชืจื’ืฉ ืœื‘ืœื•ืช ืืช ื”ืฉื ื” ื”ื‘ืื” ื‘ื™ืฉืจืืœ! ืื ื™ ื™ื”ื•ื“ื™ ื“ืชื™ ื’ืื”, ืื‘ืœ ืื™ืŸ ื–ื” ืžืฉืคื™ืข ืขืœ ื”ื™ื›ื•ืœืช ื•ื”ื ื•ื—ื•ืช ืฉืœื™ ืœื“ื‘ืจ ืขื ืžืฉืชืžืฉื™ื ืžื›ืœ ืžืงื•ื, ืฉืœ ื›ืœ ื“ืช, ื’ื–ืข, ืื• ืžื•ืฆื - ื›ื•ืœื ืžืชืงื‘ืœื™ื ื›ืืŸ! ืื ื™ ืžืชืžื—ื” ื‘ืืœื” ื”ืชื—ื•ืžื™ื ื”ื‘ืื™ื: ื—ืจื“ื” ื›ืœืœื™ืช, ื”ื˜"ื› (ื”ืคืจืขื” ื˜ื•ืจื“ื ื™ืช-ื›ืคื™ื™ืชื™ืช), ืจื•ื—ื ื™ื•ืช, ื—ื™ื™ ืชืœืžื™ื“, ืœื—ืฅ ื™ื—ืกื™ื, ื•ืœื—ืฅ ืžืฉืคื—ื”. ืื ื™ ื™ื›ื•ืœ ืœืฉื•ื—ื— ืื™ืชื›ื ืขืœ ื›ืœ ื ื•ืฉื ืฉืชื™ืจืฆื•, ืื‘ืœ ืื ื™ ืžืชื ืฆืœ, ืื ื™ ืœื ื–ืžื™ืŸ ืœื“ื‘ืจ ืขืœ ื‘ืขื™ื•ืช ืžื™ื ื™ื•ืช/ืžื™ื ื™ื•ืช ื‘ื›ืœืœ (ื—ื•ืฅ ืžื ื˜ื™ื™ื” ืžื™ื ื™ืช/ื–ื”ื•ืช ืžื’ื“ืจื™ืช ืื• ืขื ื™ื™ื ื™ ืœื”ื˜"ื‘) ืขื ื—ื‘ืจื™ื ื‘ื ื™ ื ื•ืขืจ (ืœืžื˜ื” ืžื’ื™ืœ 18), ื•ื‘ื›ืœืœื ื’ื ืฉื™ืžื•ืฉ ื‘ืกืžื™ื/ืืœื›ื•ื”ื•ืœ ืื• ื”ืชืขืœืœื•ืช/ืืœื™ืžื•ืช ื‘ืžืฉืคื—ื”.ย  ื”ืขืจื” ื—ืฉื•ื‘ื”: ื›ืžื™ืฉื”ื• ืฉืกื‘ืœ ื•ืžืžืฉื™ืš ืœืกื‘ื•ืœ ืžื”ื˜"ื›, ืื ื™ ืžื ื•ืกื” ื‘ืžื™ื•ื—ื“ ื‘ืฉื™ื—ื•ืช ืขืœ ืื•ืชื• ื ื•ืฉื. ืื ืืชื ืกื•ื‘ืœื™ื ื’ื ืžืžื—ืฉื‘ื•ืช ืื•ื‘ืกืกื™ื‘ื™ื•ืช, ื›ืคื™ื•ืช, ืื• ื”ื˜"ื› ืืžื™ืชื™ืช, ืื ื™ ืžื–ืžื™ืŸ ืืชื›ื ืœืฉื•ื—ื— ืขืœื™ื”ืŸ ืื™ืชื™ ื‘ืžืจื—ื‘ ื‘ื˜ื•ื— ื•ื ื•ื— ืœื›ื.ย  !ืœืžื™ ืฉืจื•ืฆื” ืœืฉื•ื—ื— ืื™ืชื™ ื‘ืขื‘ืจื™ืช ื‘ื‘ืงืฉื” ืœื”ื•ื“ื™ืข ืœื™ ืื ืืช/ื” ื–ื›ืจ ืื• ื ืงื‘ื” ื›ื“ื™ ืฉืื•ื›ืœ ืœื”ืฉืชืžืฉ ื‘ื›ื™ื ื•ื™ื™ ื”ื’ื•ืฃ ื”ืžืชืื™ืžื™ื ืœืš. ืžืชืจื’ืฉ ืœืฉื•ื—ื— ืื™ืชืš :). ืชื•ื›ืœื• ืœืžืฆื•ื ืืช ื”ื˜ื•ืคืก ืœืงื‘ื™ืขืช ืคื’ื™ืฉื•ืช ืื™ืชื™ ืœืขื™ืœ ื‘ืจืืฉ ืชื™ืื•ืจ ื”ืคืจื•ืคื™ืœ ืฉืœื™. ื™ื•ื ื˜ื•ื‘ ื•ืื™ื—ื•ืœื™ื ืœื‘ื‘ื™ื™ื! --------ย My Schedule I am guaranteed to be online and available for scheduling during the following time slots and on the following days (excluding individual appointments with specific members).

One of my Fav Quotes: "In many ways the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgement. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth that we critics must face is that in the grand sceme of things the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something and that is in the discovery and the defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gustaeu's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gustaeu's. Who is in this critic's opinion nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gustaeu's soon, hungry for more" Victor Ego Ratatouille
