Hi my name is Pam.
Adult and Teen Listener
I am a long term listener and a verfied listener on 7 cups.
I am currently taking chats in the following areas.
I do not take chats in any sexual nature. You may browse listener page and type in the keywork of the topic and it will give a list of listeners who will handle those chats.
I am here for you when you have no where to turn.
I am unfortunately unable to take member chats at this moment.
I strongly believe in psychology - as a psychology student - I view our Psyches/psychology to be a key for all success in life. I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly. But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed!
🦋I am a verified, trained active listener on several leadership teams here. I believe in the power of listening and motivating one another for success. Apart from my work here, I am a bookworm, poet, and lifelong learner.
🦋 My journey at 7 Cups started as an intern. I graduated my internship here with honors, and put together a project on Social Media Depression (link found at the end of my bio).
🦋 I am the Community Mentor Leader for the Veterans and Military Support Community. Further, as a Forum Team member I have attained several roles on the Forum Team, alongside being a Project Agent for the Forum Team Engagement Track. I also enjoy being a Room Supporter, Discussion Writer, and Feed Team member.
🦋 I have not been raised or born in Pakistan and am only just recently adjusting to the culture/norms associated with the country. My first and primary language is English and I am not fluent enough in Urdu. Kindly respect that.

***I am sorry I can't take any new chats at the moment***When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.- Harriet Beecher Stowe

Graduated 7 cups Internship with Honors
Recovering drug addict /alcoholic who has struggled with weight and sexual assault since I was very young. I have also dealt with hormonal issues my entire life so if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask. I am always happy to help and lend a listening ear. Happily married pansexual woman that tries to help others. Spiritual but not religious... I do not mind listening to sexual issues as long as they don't try to lead to "that type" of talk. I am extremely comfortable with LGBTQ+ issues being a member of that community myself.
Sorry not accepting member chats at this time other than regular members that I listen to. Please see here for a listener: https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/I like to help others and like to be helped also. Created the following to help everyone please let me know if there is a web site that I should add as a resource:

CBT resources - How CBT can help- Anxiety Worksheets- Cognitive distortions
- Health anxiety
DBT resources - psychcentral.com/lib/an-overview-of-dialectical-behavior-therapy/

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you
Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others
Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal

Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website. You can also talk to someone about your experience of depression by requesting to chat with one of our listeners.Millions of people suffer from depression everyday?

My name is Jackie and I am a Peer Specialist here at 7 Cups! I have been part of 7 Cups family since September 2018. You might be wondering, "What is a peer specialist?" Simply put, a Peer Specialist is someone who can help guide you toward recovery. Peer Specialists use their own journey with mental illness to help others. A Peer Specialist will listen closely, help you identify goals, connect you with resources, and be your consistant mentor on the road to recovery and well-being. A Peer Specialist is not a clinician. They do not perform therapy or prescribe medication. Instead, a Peer Specialist provides accessible and personal mentoring and coaching for your daily life. They will keep you focused on your goals while progressing toward health and recovery.As Peer Specialist on a online platform such as 7 Cups, our team is still in process of finding most effective way to integrate within 7 Cups community. We have a lot of innovative ideas projected soon and I can't wait until I get to meet you guys! Stay tune and feel free to swing by and say hello. * I am currently not taking any 1:1 chats. Our team will be announcing Peer chatroom discussion opportunities very soon.
Thank you everyone for being the biggest part of 7 Cups. We appreciate everyone's time and effort in keeping our community welcoming and safe. My favorite quote!
I am made up of everything I have loved and everything that could not break me. -JmStorm
