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.

**NOTICE** I will be scheduling chats throughout the month of July (beginning on June 29th) for a half hour at a time only and in reduced capacity overall. I apologize for any inconveniences. Welcome to My Profile! ברוכים הבאים לפרופיל שלי!You can schedule a time to chat with me by submitting this form ☺ אם רצונך לדבר איתי בעברית, אפשר למצוא את אותו טופס כאן Please read my bio before sending me a PM :)A Bit About Me - ראו למטה לפרטים לדוברי עברית  Hey there! 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! 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! (English)אני מדבר עברית כשפה שנייה (עברית - Hebrew)Yo hablo un poco de Español :) (Español - Spanish)J'apprends le Français et Je sais un petit peu! (Français - French) איך רעד א ביסל יידיש! (יידיש - Yiddish)Ich sprache ein bisschen Deutsch! (Deutsch - German) Я говорю немного Русского Языка, и я могу его читать и писать! (Русский - Russian)Mi parolas multan Esperanton, sed ĝi ne estas flua - mi esperas ke mi baldaŭ povos uzi ĝin kun membroj kiuj parolas Esperanton :)! (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. 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 :).  שיהיה כל הפעילות שלי כאן לזכר נשמת נחמן דניאל בן אריה צבי ז"ל שנפטר יום ל"ג בעומר ה'תשפ"א ושתתעלה נשמתו בגן עדן במנוחה המתאימה לצדקותו 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 will not 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 only you know your situation best. I can ask you guiding questions and we can work together based on them to possibly figure out a proper plan moving forward! - I will listen to you compassionately and attentively. - 7cups is not a crisis resource. If you are in crisis (having thoughts/intentions of suicide or are currently harming yourself), please contact crisis resources here or contact emergency services if you are in an immediate medical emergency. - I apologize - I am not able to discuss the following issues with members: domestic abuse/violence, drug/alcohol use, and anything involving sexual topics with teen members (I am available to chat with adult members about such topics), or Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD - I am still comfortable chatting with members suffering from BPD, just that I am not available to chat specifically about it beyond a passing detail or mention. If you're in doubt, definitely feel free to message and I can let you know if I'm available for you :)). - You can expect a response from me within 24 hours to any and all messages that you send me unless I specifically specify to you otherwise. - I value you, all of you, with your strengths and weaknesses too!Roles on 7cupsQuality Mentor - I am a Quality Mentor (QM), meaning that I work with other listeners, both adults and teens, to improve active listening skills and in general work on improving the overall listener quality of 7Cups! If you would like me to be your mentor, feel free to send me a message and we can get to work.Verified Adult-Teen Listener - I am available to chat with both adult and teen members and have been evaluated as a listener committed to high-quality active-listening. However, I apologize, I am unavailable to chat with teen members regarding matters of sexual health/any topic which involves sexual details (excluding LGBTQ+ topics - I'm good to go with those for anyone!). If that is what you would like to chat about, you can search for a different listener here.Safety Patrol - I flag profiles and forum posts for content which violates site policy. If you know of any such profiles or posts which may  contain such material, don't hesitate to reach out to me or any other member of Safety Patrol!Leader of the Hebrew Translation Project for 7Cups - I submit, edit, and approve all potential Hebrew translations for the site. If you would like to apply as a member of the project, click here. You can subscribe to the official forum thread for the project here.Listener Coaching Team - I am a Listener Coach, and I assist listeners both new and experienced alike with specific requests for guidance in many different areas including but not limited to active listening skills, site navigation, situation management, and site policy. You can submit a Listener Coach Request here and I or another Listener Coach will contact you within five days.Quotes I Love!אם תירצו, אין זו אגדה - If you will it, it is no mere dream - Theodore HerzlIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. 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. -  President Theodore RooseveltEbla estas fortecon trovi en ĉiuj el ni, iuj jam ĝin trovis, aliaj ne, sed brulas fajro en ĉiu homo ke ne neniam estingiĝos, eĉ ne povas oni ĝin 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 burningפינת עברית  שלום וברוכים הבאים לפרופיל שלי! קוראים לי שניאור, ואני תלמיד בישיבה בארה"ב. דעו שאתם לא לבדכם למרות איך שתרגישו, מפני שאני אנסה תמיד להיות שם בשבילכם! להגיד קצת על עצמי (כדי שהשיחות שלנו יהיו רק עליכם!), אני בן 18 רגיל, לומד בישיבה ומתרגש לבלות את השנה הבאה בישראל! אני יהודי דתי גאה, אבל אין זה משפיע על היכולת והנוחות שלי לדבר עם משתמשים מכל מקום, של כל דת, גזע, או מוצא - כולם מתקבלים כאן! אני מתמחה באלה התחומים הבאים: חרדה כללית, הט"כ (הפרעה טורדנית-כפייתית), רוחניות, חיי תלמיד, לחץ יחסים, ולחץ משפחה. אני יכול לשוחח איתכם על כל נושא שתירצו, אבל אני מתנצל, אני לא זמין לדבר על בעיות מיניות/מיניות בכלל (חוץ מנטייה מינית/זהות מגדרית או ענייני להט"ב) עם חברים בני נוער (למטה מגיל 18), ובכללם גם שימוש בסמים/אלכוהול או התעללות/אלימות במשפחה.  הערה חשובה: כמישהו שסבל וממשיך לסבול מהט"כ, אני מנוסה במיוחד בשיחות על אותו נושא. אם אתם סובלים גם ממחשבות אובססיביות, כפיות, או הט"כ אמיתית, אני מזמין אתכם לשוחח עליהן איתי במרחב בטוח ונוח לכם.  !למי שרוצה לשוחח איתי בעברית בבקשה להודיע לי אם את/ה זכר או נקבה כדי שאוכל להשתמש בכינויי הגוף המתאימים לך. מתרגש לשוחח איתך :). תוכלו למצוא את הטופס לקביעת פגישות איתי לעיל בראש תיאור הפרופיל שלי. יום טוב ואיחולים לבביים! -------- 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).

(please read through everything before messaging me ) A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME Hello! I am Parvi or more commonly known as Orange, and I am 17 this year. I hope it's going great currently, but if it's not, my inbox is always open for a chat. In the past, I have gone through a couple of rough patches, but I have learned a lot about myself throughout the journey towards recovery. If you would like to chat with me, it is best if you could use my booking form here, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeG03YJxglhAK1MxnQN-DPHZfeBdxcCT_8vWHn1M1Tpm5gO9A/viewform?usp=sf_link. Thank you! Pronouns: she/herMY LISTENING STYLE  I enjoy asking questions. My listening style mainly revolves around open-ended questions. I love to help you figure out what you need by asking questions that would help. Sometimes we may not be a match, and that's completely okay. Feel free to just inform me if you feel that I may not be the best choice for you, and I would love to help look for another listener that could be a better match. During the chat, if you do feel that I may have mentioned something that isn't right, feel free to correct me on the spot! Also, please do not ask me for my personal information or any advice as those are against the guidelines. If you continue to ask me these things, I may have to end the chat after 3 warnings. MY WEAKNESSES As a person who prioritises quality over many other aspects, I think it's only fair for me to also address my weaknesses and how I am working on them. Firstly, I would like to address my response times. I do have quite an uncertain schedule, so I may disappear in the middle of a chat. I have also recently been facing many technical issues due to my unstable internet connection. On that note, I am trying to improve my response timings as well as I am working on my internet quality. If you feel I may have not responded for more than 48 hours, feel free to send me a second pm. I would also like to note that my status colour is a great indicator of my activity. It is usually on Orange, which means I am around Cups, but I am not taking any member chats. If you pm me while my status indicates I am busy, please do not expect a response immediately. Another aspect I am currently working on is my reflection. I may not be very good at this and if you are looking for a listener with great reflection skills, I may not be the best choice. I am currently practising more of my reflections skills in hopes that one day I could reach the point where I could say I am great at it. MY ROLES  Engagement Teen Star Leader Support Team Teen Star for the Eating Disorder Sub-Community Teen Community Star for the Eating Disorders Sub-Community Safety Patroller Chat Supporter Community Moderator for Safety and Knowledge Sub Community Room Supporter for Student and Career Support Sub Community Project Agent for Around the World Translations Team Leader for the Malay Language  Team Leader for the Teen Listeners Daily Check-ins Project Agent for the Teen Listeners Room Listener Verifier Doorkeeper Group Leadership & Dynamics Development Mentor (under the 7 Cups academy)STATUS MEANINGGreen - Available to chat with members/listenersOrange - Busy doing some work here on 7 CupsRed - Offline and not available to chatMY AMAZING FRIENDS HERE ON 7 CUPS(clickable links) @Rhlexia520 - One of my sweetest mentees, really hardworking and overall amazing listeners!@BrightHeart116 - One of the kindest and the sweetest person that you could chat with. @SunnyLexi - One of the most fun people to chat with on a daily basisCHAT TOPICS I AM COMFORTABLE TAKING Depression, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Bullying, Family Stress, Forgiveness, Getting Unstuck, Managing Emotions, Panic Attacks, Sexual Health, Student LifeCHAT TOPICS I AM NOT COMFORTABLE TAKING Self Harm, Alcohol/ Drug Use, Chronic Pain, Disabilities
