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.

If for some reason my status is green but I am not responding: It has been determined that there is a current problem with my status in the search results; it shows me as always available. Please refer to the chat window for my current status and understand that I am unable to control the errors that occur on the website. Generally speaking, I do not provide support for relationship issues, domestic violence, sexual trauma, discussions of incest and/or other non-consensual sexual experiences. I do not provide detailed discussions of sexual desires, fetishes or sexual dysfunction in biological men; if you need help in these areas, I recommend working with a professional.I cannot discuss self-harm, suicidal ideation/events, or abuse events. Please seek support from another listener if you need this kind of help, or reach out to suicide.org My name is Lynn, and I'm glad you've found me! I'm a trained listener with a degree in English and psychology as well as professional training in peer counseling. I am NOT a professional psychologist, and I cannot provide therapy services. My primary study in the psychology field focused on abnormal psychology and human sexuality; I am current working on a book addressing human memory. I am GLBTQ+ friendly. My professional training has focused mostly on sexuality, anxiety management, and autism spectrum disorder. In my free time, I enjoy writing, movies, and MUSIC!!! Feel free to reach out to me anytime I'm online. If I'm not currently available, you are free to write a detailed message discussing your concerns after you've completely reviewed this profile. I generally do not reply to messages that provide no detail and/or indicate that they didn't review my profile. Please read previous member reviews before connecting with me. If you're a fellow listener, I appreciate your interest, but I will hold you accountable to the listener agreement and will not provide emotional wellness support outside the parameters of that agreement, no exceptions! I am, in general, an acute situation listener. I focus on accountability support. This means I'm not likely to "just chat" with you. I am an active and engaged listener who will reply and ask challenging questions; if you're looking for a place to simply vent to someone and are not interested in a discussion regarding active choice and personal responsibility for your outcomes, I recommend you work with another listener first.I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.  I am also a person living with ASD. My vocabulary and style of speech has been labeled as mean, harsh, aggressive, you name it, I've heard it. This is because I speak matter of factly, in detail. My messages will not have hidden meanings; I say what I mean. Sometimes this is difficult for members. However, I find that respectful communication can go a long way to resolving these difficulties. My style is to talk about progressive approaches and necessary steps, whether or not they "feel good"... I'm not one to try and package up harsh realities in fuzzy packages. I firmly believe that every adult has the ultimate responsibility for their feelings and their response to those feelings, so a discussion with me will be about accountability, self-honesty and can sometimes be a "rude" reality check. My expectation for members that talk to me is that they have read this description and accept that this is what they will get from me; that I expect them to be a grown adult, able to speak about issues with maturity and a desire for affirmation and change, and will understand that it is up to them and them alone where the power lies. I am simply a facilitator in your own conversation with yourself; if something I say is sharp, hits home, there is a reason. As any listener on here has the right to do, I reserve the right and ability to set conversational boundaries and protect myself as an emotional being. If at any time I feel that either involved party is at risk during our conversations, I will advise as much and do my best to direct the member to the best path. While I have professional training and education, I cannot provide therapy services or fill in as a replacement for your mental health professional. Instructions for requesting a discussion: Review the above content IN FULL *prior* to messaging me. I wrote it for a reason. Take a few minutes to deeply consider what you're coming here to talk about today. 1. What is the primary goal for reaching out? The answer to this question requires a brief explanation (1-3 sentences) of the personal accountability topic/situation you are wantingt to discuss. After confirming that your topic is not one of the excluded pieces above, choose one of the following, providing details:   a. Specific Event/Choice/Decision/Question, skill building, guidance, tutoring, etc. b. Question regarding one of the areas of expertise listed above c. A more casual style exchange, with the understanding that the chat will be lower priority with potentially slower response times. d. I don't know, but this seems to be the most comfortable place to discuss my issue. 2. What kind of support style are you expecting from our interaction? a. Constructive - I will provide the important details to my listener, and would like confirmation of understanding followed by questions b. Challenging - I will provide some details, but want my listener to push me, using difficult questions and providing detailed educational info c. Purely Educational - I want to ask a question, and have my listener explain what they know, allowing for me to ask questions and learn; I accept the information as given is not intended to be exclusive, and that it is up to me to confirm it with additional resources. d. Just a chat - I understand that I still need to identify what I want to speak about, and that my listener prioritizes other chat types over casual chatting. I also confirm that I am not making contact for chat using my own listener account. 3. How will we measure the progress/success we make towards your stated goals? a. Obvious - My goal has a distinct resolution that will be clearly identified, such as question/answer, obtaining a specific piece of information or knowledge, etc. b. Discreet - My goal has a resolution that will be identified by me, and I commit to providing progress updates during the conversation so that my listener is aware of how successful we are. c. Witnessed - My goal has a resolution that can only be identified through the witness of 3rd parties, such as my boss confirming an improvement in my workplace performance after I've implemented the work/information gained through my discussion with the listener. d. Listener-Only - My goal has a resolution that can only be identified and confirmed by the listener. I trust them to provide feedback to me regarding how well I am doing, and accept that my perception of progress may differ from theirs.WHEN LEAVING ME A MESSAGE WHILE I AM OFFLINE OR BUSY, PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR ANSWERS TO THE ABOVE INCLUDING THE DETAILS OF EACH ANSWER. MESSAGES LEFT WITHOUT FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY NOT BE ANSWERED, DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE CORRECTED AFTER 3 CONSECUTIVE CONTACTS WITHOUT DETAILS. ON THE 4TH CONTACT WITHOUT DETAILS, THE MEMBER FORFEITS THEIR ACCESS TO DISCUSSION. If you have any questions regarding the contents of this profile, you are welcome to ask specific and direct questions. I will answer them at the earliest convenience.
