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 VIOLA and I am not a robot. I am an active verified listener here who has completed her internship with honors.Here is the link of my internship project https://www.7cups.com/forum/DepressionSupport_52/DepressionResources_214/MyhonorsprojectonDEPRESSION_157207/And since i know about psychology too i understand people's emotions better. According to me half of the problems of people nowadays can be solved by just a random talk with someone. I understand that no one is wrong and it is okay to have perceptions different from anyone else. Here you can talk with me freely about anything you want to. I will try to help you.Remember IT IS PERFECTLY OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY FINE TO ASK FOR HELP.   Lets fulfil the aim of 7cups - to help being anonymous.  My favourites-Love is one thing we are capable of perceiving that transcends time and space - Interstellar Distance doesn't separate people, silence does.

Minden rendben lesz! Everything will be okay! I went through all of the forms of the abuse as a child. Everybody a miracle said that I survived it. I am a survivor, and now human rights shielding, activist.  I am a Verified Support Listener . I am here if he would like to speak. “I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

I only take chats within my topics. If possible please check my profile before requesting a chat with me.   (Not necessary if I took your general request.)If you're in a too bad condition just make sure you want to talk about something within my areas of expertise.Sensory overload warning: If you're sensitive to flashing colors you don't need to read the rest of my profile as it may be triggering. In that case, just drop me a message including the topic you want to chat about. ​Urgency first: If you are facing an acute situation like a panic attack, flare-up, or urgent urge you don't need to read the rest of the text and can just drop me a request. I'll take care of you as soon as possible. If you're not in a situation like that please read on to see if I am the right Listener for you. If yes you're very welcome to contact me but you may have to wait a bit in case I am occupied with an urgent case, especially if my status is set to busy (orange).Hello and welcome to 7cups. I'm a 24 years old female from Germany and glad you're reading this. I had and still have to struggle with some of the things I offer support with and that's why I think I can help you with it. I understand you well and maybe I have suggestions, techniques, or skills to help you. I'm familiar with living with chronic pain, self-harm, and panic attacks. I also have non-epileptic (dissociative/conversion) seizures and I'd like to exchange experience about this anytime to possibly learn from each other when it comes to managing or getting them under control better.In the following, I will describe myself as a Listener and explain in what case I am the right one for you. If you select me as your Listener and I think there is a chance that I might be able to help, I will surely try my best to do so. If I was to describe myself as a listener I would say I'm mostly supportive, reassuring, and encouraging. But despite all my empathy and understanding I still tend to be somewhat challenging. I can assure you that you have my greatest support if you are willing to work with me and I will be here to guide you through whatever struggle you may face. My favorite saying that I took from the saw movies which I enjoy (don't worry, I'm not a creep) is  "CHERISH YOUR LIFE" and I hope I can help you do that too along the way.Send me a personal request by chatting to me or leaving me a message if: - you want to learn to live better with chronic pain, especially such that gets worse in flare-ups or you want to know how to best deal with/ support a person close to you that suffers from this  (1) - you want to manage daily life better with a disability that affects you or a person close to you (autism and ad(h)d included) (2) - you want to stop self-harm (3) - you want to cope better with panic attacks and possibly get rid of them (4)- you want to talk about non-epileptic (dissociative/conversion) seizures (PNES) and possibly gain better control of them or talk about any other kind of dissociation or dissociative/conversion or psychosomatic disorder (5) - you want to chat about (C)PTSD and how it affects your life and find coping strategies that work for you (6)- Parenting: I don't have any own kids and not so much practical experience with education yet but I'll probably be doing counseling for parents, especially for children with disabilities in my future job so I would like to test my skills on this here and gain first experiences (7)​If you send a personal request please start the chat with a code number from 1 to 7 (that you see on the list next to the thing you want to talk about) to show you have read this. I do provide long-term support as well! Let me know straight away if you wish that.Please note: Whilst I do have my own as well as professional experiences with some of these topics I am not a fully trained professional. I am in education for a job where I work with people and help them for example through counseling but on here I am only a Listener and not a Therapist. This means I can't give you advice as to having the ultimate right solution for you. Yet I am glad to provide you with suggestions where I feel it's appropriate and to consider your options together if you want to. If I am offline (red) you can still drop me a message and I will get in touch when I see it.If I don't take your request still feel free to leave me a message because I might have forgotten to log out but will get back to you when I see it.​​​If you read everything: Thanks for your patience and attention, you're extra special :-pIch spreche auch Deutsch. Themen: chronische Schmerzen oder Behinderung bei Betroffenen und Angehörigen, selbstverletzendes Verhalten, Panikattacken, dissoziative Identitätsstörung und dissoziative Zustände/ Anfälle oder Konversionsstörung, Trauma, Genesung/Erholung/Rehablilitation von einer Verletzung oder körperlichen oder psychischen Erkrankung, Erziehung/ Elternberatung z.

Sorry to the delay in responding to messages, I've been fairly sick.  I really hope to be back soon and catch up on messages but I can't promise when that will be. My life has changed while dealing with some health issues. I have learned quite a bit about myself while spending time on doing what I can to keep my body, mind and spirit healthy. I hope some of the things I have gone through can help you out! Areas where I can help: Invisible disability Chronic health problems Chronic disease Physical health problems Fear of needles

Hello, We can connect and talk. I would love to Listen.My usual Time Limit is 45-60minutes. Weekends are usually allocated as my self-care break days so that I can give you my best.A little bit about me- I have completed my degree in Behavioural Sciences with Majors in Psychology and Management.  I have also completed my training in CBT and Mental Health First Aid. I am passionate about Human Mind and Behaviour.My leadership roles include-Listener Coach/Mentor. Chatroom Moderator.I believe in connecting with people and listening to them whilst providing support at the time of crisis. This can sometimes empower and give you the ability to better cope in a difficult situation. This quote resonated with me: At The End Of The Day. All You Need Is Hope And Strength, Hope That It will Get Better, And Strength To Hold On Until It Does”.   I will not encourage abusive, offensive and sexually provocative chats.Have a good day!
