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! My name is Kelly! I’m just a average high schooler and I love to help people! My pronouns are she/her. I’m part of the LGBTQ+ community. I have mid-length dark brown hair, hazel chestnut brown eyes and you’ll probably see me wearing a hoodie with ripped jeans and a pair of white sneakers, haha. Many people say that my personality is very funny, kind, compassionate, and understanding. I am a sport athlete so I stay fit. I’m a honors student all my life, not to brag. My dream career is to work at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline as a counselor. Then become a licensed therapist! Profile Status:Green: Green means that I’m online. During weekends, I’m offline because I'm giving time for myself and trying to do some self-care! If you message me during weekends, feel free to still send me a message and I'll try to get back to you ASAP! During weekdays, I’m mainly online from 6:00 - 11 pm CST. If you send me a message, I’ll reply fairly fast during those hours. There are times where I would hop on here and check my messages but I won’t be on for long if it’s not my working hours! Please message me anytime!Orange: Orange means that I’m busy. I usually accept a lot of chatters at once so that they won’t have to wait long to connect with somebody. If I've received my limited amount of chatters, then I would change my status to orange. Orange can also stand for me taking a quick break between my work hours just for a few minutes. Please do keep in mind that if I don't reply as quickly as you expect, please still be respectful and tell me kindly and I will try to fix that for you! Do remember that there are also other chatters that I'm talking to as well at the same time, please be mindful for others too on here!Red: Red means that I’m offline. It’s either I’m at school or I’m sleeping, eating, or just have some self-care time to myself. If you message me while I’m offline, I’ll get your notification but I probably won’t respond to it if I'm not working. Not saying it in a harsh way but if I do seem offline and you really need someone to talk to, please do send me a message and I'll try to get back to you when I'm available!Please don’t shy away from texting me. I’m always here for you. Know that you're never alone in this world. There are so many people here on earth that is ready to give you the support and love that you desperately deserve. We work together as a team, that's more powerful than anything. Know that if I'm not available, there are so many other listeners out there that would love to get to know you too! You are worth SO much and you're here for a reason. Achieve your dreams and goals with a head held high and faith high up. Know that with everything that you're going through... you are not a victim but a SURVIVOR. I'm walking this journey with you, my loves! <3"It's going to be hard, but hard does NOT mean that it's impossible.""The key to success is is to focus on goals, not obstacles"."DON'T judge anyone based on what you heard."You're such a daisy, hmu whenever you need to chat!

I am a 36 year old male with a masters degree level of education. I live with a physical disability which requires me to communicate with people about my needs on a daily basis due to my physical limitations. My physical disability provides me with insight on being "different" and how others react to that around me. I have always loved listening to others, and often find they come to me about issues they are going through in their lives whether it be to talk about relationships, stress in life, family troubles, or many other things. I do my best to be there for them.
