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.

Hello, I'm glad you found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I like to help people who are struggling with loneliness, who feel they are intellectually isolated, neglected and misunderstood in this big world.It's all about walking together, hand in hand, down the gloomy bleak streets. It's all about defying together the dreary desolate nights. lt's all about invading together the invincible longstanding spiritual-isolation castle.On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, follow the faraway calling.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, walk as a solitary soul shared between the two of us.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, feel wrapped in the seclusion of the depth of the night.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, stroll beside the appalling towering walls of the night, and under the mysterious roof of its misty gray heaven.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, walk on the same revolting dark asphalt, that cares a little about anyone's hopelessness, or about his miserable feelings.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, walk beneath the same dark trees, and beneath their depressingly dancing phantoms on their tops.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, pass through the ruins of desolated houses, and over the soil of old cemeteries.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, carry our blessed heaven within our hearts.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, feel the glorious triumph of the holy love.       On the same road, we are going to walk together, trust our intuition, know together that the shroud of the dismal night will be, for every carrier of the holy love, the real upcoming daylight.The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, you are over there, still peering behind the curtains of your closed window.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, the walls of your room is still getting thicker and higher, echoing the silence of your confinement.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, your wounds are still bleeding sorrow and defeat.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, your tears are still flowing like a murky river.       The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, your murky river is still watering the trees of your misery and grief.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, you still feel lost amid your familiar roads.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, you are still over there, at the corner of the street, with an immeasurable pain radiating from your eyes.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, your loneliness is still getting worse, and your spiritual isolation castle has become invincible.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me about, the timid moonlight, behind its thick dark clouds, is shyly pointing towards your blocked roads.      The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, you still harbor hope and a dream about a helping hand.    The silence of the night tells me an old tale, it tells me, your waiting for a helping hand, may take So Long.I will be waiting for you at every upcoming dawn.I will be waiting for you in every sunbeam overcomes dim clouds.I will be waiting for you in every secluded shady spot under leafy trees.I will be waiting for you in every child's innocent eyes draw me handsome again.I will be waiting for you on every long road that mocks us and lead us nowhere.I will be waiting for you in every pain and every relief.   I will be waiting for you in every heart's pulse push the despair away.  I cannot draw you except as a flower at my barred window.      I cannot draw you except as a sunbeam passes through the thick curtains of my bedroom and dispels its gloom.      I cannot draw you except as the meaningful thoughts dissolved between the lines of my old thick heavy books.      I cannot draw you except as my only friend that always walks with me on my long way, during my misty nights, away from this world.      I cannot draw you except as a dream that has been materialized into the shape of beautiful eyes which do not radiate anything except love and care.      I cannot draw you except as a tree in an arid land, within its tender branches, accommodates migrating birds, and under its boughs, shades weary travelers.      I cannot draw you except as a homeland and as an awaiting mother's hug, after a long travel of her son.      I cannot draw you except as a love song I always hear it when the moon comes back from its regular journey and shades its silver rays on my high barred window again.      I cannot draw you except as a red heart on my front door, and when my neighbors ask me about the reasons for my love, I will answer them:'' Your Love is my Reasons.'' The loving eyes can give meaning and purpose to every meaningless desolate road.  The loving eyes can plug oozing wounds and heal burning pains.    The loving eyes can rescue the hijacked dignity of the despised soul.    The loving eyes can demolish the prideful monumental depression, and obliterate its many years of imposed defeat.  The loving eyes can shake the deep foundation of the kingdom of darkness,    and its pervasive firmly-established roots are going to be eradicated.    The loving eyes can revive the entombed dreams,    and into their dead veins, can induce their ceased pulse again.    The loving eyes can resurrect the deceased hope under the domination of its grave's debris.    The loving eyes can give us a rebirth, and make us able to walk upright again.    The loving eyes are about to cry out with a loud voice and say: "Lazarus, Come Out!''
