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,Misty here! I am unable to take any new member chats right now, please find another listener by browsing here https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners I hope to be back soon! ......................................................................................... "I am glad you have found me here at 7 Cups! I am happy to listen to you on many topics. I have experience of lots of different areas - anxiety, depression, and mental illness, families and relationships, love, school, college or work-related problems, financial stress, healthy living, food, diets, eating disorders, I can also offer support for chronic pain, illness, and disabilities. I am part of both the adult and the teen listening team, (and yes I can still remember being a teen lol) and I also offer long-term support to those that I can and who are in need."If I am not online then you are welcome to leave me a message -  but please tell me what you want to talk about so we can get off to a flying start. I will get back to you when I am next able, but please bear in mind that I get a lot of messages and I will reply to the most urgent first so if you just say hi, do you really just want a hi back?At weekends my response will be slower as that is usually my time off from 7Cups, and I may not respond to any pm's or new requests till Monday. I  hope you understand that. We all need time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and relax. ONE STEP AT A TIME"We all have different size footsteps that we leave behind on our journey through life.Sometimes we can change the size of our footsteps, the imprint, the impact, the direction.Sometimes our footsteps land on rock and they do not show, or they land on sand and stay for a while,Other times they get washed away by massive oceans or powerful waves.But each and every footstep is important in so many ways.Ways that we may not even know about.Watch your step, think about your steps, plan your next step, and the rest will follow."  Listening ... one step at a timeButterflies are a symbol of hope that we can all change from a smallbrown grub into a beautiful amazing butterfly! One step at a time!Quote of AcceptanceWhen we don't accept an undesired event, it becomes Anger, when we accept it, it becomes tolerance. When we don't accept uncertainty, it becomes fear, when we accept it, it becomes an adventure, When we don't accept other's bad behavior towards us, it becomes hatred, When we accept it, it becomes forgiveness.When we don't accept other's success, it becomes jealousy When we accept it, it becomes an inspiration. Acceptance is the key to handling life well !!Butterflies are a symbol of hope that we can all change from a smallbrown grub into a beautiful amazing butterfly! One step at a time!

*PLEASE READ BEFORE LEAVING A MESSAGE, THANK YOU* MY AVAILABILITY:Online: I am open to taking chats.Busy: I am on the platform, however I will get back to you when I get the chance.Offline: I am not taking chats right now.At times, we all need someone somewhere to talk to. Well... you've come to the right place. I appreciate you reaching out and putting your trust in me to do so. I'm here to empathize with, support, and listen to those who need it the most. My chats are an anonymous, confidential, and safe space for you to vent.NOTES: 1. I cannot offer personal advice (ADVISORS ≠ LISTENERS). YOU are the true expert of your experience, with full awareness of how you've been affected. Although I am willing to hear you out, advising you might do you more harm than good. It is not my place to tell you what to do in matters you're dealing with. 2. I cannot offer diagnoses (DOCTORS ≠ LISTENERS). Only medical and mental health professionals can assess any physical or psychological symptoms, respectively. This ability and right does NOT apply to me as a Volunteering Listener.  Please ensure you check my Categories list below my bio to see if the topic you'd like to discuss is included. If the issue you're dealing with is NOT listed, it's either because I am uncomfortable discussing OR do not have sufficient insight on said topic. Thank your for your understanding.Leaving an honest rating and review of your experience with me would contribute to growth and reassurance of adhering to my role and, of course, be greatly appreciated.🙏🏽

Programs Coordinator I am unfortunately unable to take member chats at this moment. I strongly believe in psychology - as a psychology student - I view our Psyches/psychology to be a key for all success in life. I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly. But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed! 🦋I am a verified, trained active listener with experience on several leadership teams here. I believe in the power of listening and motivating one another for success. Apart from my work here, I am a bookworm, poet, and lifelong learner. I enjoy advocating mental health and have leadership experience and training. 🦋 My journey at 7 Cups started as an intern. I graduated my internship here with honors, and put together a project on Social Media Depression (link found at the end of my bio). 🦋 My current roles include being the Programs Coordinator - I oversee the Content Volunteer Team and the Translations Project. I also enjoy being a Peer Supporter, Moderator/Room Supporter, as well as a forum-worm). 🦋 In the past, I have loved being the CML for the Veterans and Military Support Community and the Family and Caregivers Support Community as well. I have worked with great teams including the 35+ and 50+ subcommunities, and have been a discussion writer and feed team member as well. 🦋 I have not been raised or born in Pakistan and am only just recently adjusting to the culture/norms associated with the country. My first and primary language is English and I am not fluent enough in Urdu. Kindly respect that. 🦋If you are interested in learning more about the Community Projects and the Honors project, discussed above, please click the links below. Thank you!

Hello!  Welcome to my profile. This is river. I use any pronouns.  I'm a trained verified active listener here at 7 Cups. You can expect an open, supportive and judgement-free safe space from me.  I don't schedule chats at all.  All the live chats are 30 minutes long. Long-term support I'm the most comfortable providing support on the topics listed below but I'm happy to take other topics as well. I don't take chats on spirituality/religion, sexual health and weight management. "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." ~ Carl R. Rogers
