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.

I'm Amy! 💭 It's not always easy to talk about ourselves, our problems, or our views, we never know how others will react to what we are saying. It's not easy to feel at ease when opening up to a stranger or finding someone with who you feel comfortable. I can't promise to be the right listener for you, I can't promise a fix to your problems, feelings, and thoughts, I can't promise an answer to every question there is, but I can offer a friendly ear to talk to and to share your story with. We all have a story, we all express our feelings in a different way, we all react to things differently. No problem is small, if it affects you, you have every right to talk about it and feel the way you feel about it. You have every right to share it with someone and it's what I am here for - to listen.  ☑️ Teen pregnancy/ Teen parenting friendly! Any related issues you can discuss with me, I won't judge and I might even understand it more than you think. 🕠 I'm online at least once a week, so if I'm not online, you can leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If I'm online, message away and we can chat. If you would like to schedule a chat with me, you can simply message me and we will work out the best time that works for both of us!Thank you for reaching out to me! 💜

You can book me for a chat here: https://izzy274.youcanbook.me/ or pm anytime and I'll reply when I'm online! I may not be able to reply to private messages on Sundays as this is when I host sharing circle and Support Room 24/7. If you have seen me in group rooms and I've not replied to a pm, please don't feel like I'm ignoring you! I love talking to everyone here, and will get around to my private messages when I'm not focused on hosting so my attention isn't split between different people <3 . My name is Izzy (she/her), as my username suggests, and I’m always happy to talk/ listen to you.   A little bit about me: I’m 17, female and from the UK. I have lots of hobbies, including music (I play piano and cello), art ( I like to draw and I’m also trying felting) and reading. I’m currently doing A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and maths, and I am an aspiring medic, so if you’re feeling stressed or worried about school or applications to uni/college feel free to message me ❤️ as I have lots of personal experience in this area. I love meeting new people and finding out about their interests and hobbies.   I became a listener in March 2020, because I wanted to pay forward the amazing support that had been given to me whilst I was struggling with anxiety and depression. It means a lot to have someone to talk to who will actually listen, and it can be so powerful sometimes. On 7 Cups, I want to be able to make even the smallest difference to your day, no matter if it's just a short check-in to see how you're doing. I love getting to know you all over time and growing together to enable you to achieve the things you want to.     I try to be active 7-10 pm British time daily ( I think that's 2-5 pm EST), and respond within 3 days maximum.  If my icon is green  I am currently available and accepting any chats! Feel free to make a personal request and I will be online to chat for at least 30 minutes.  If my icon is orange I am online but busy - feel free to message me however replies may be slow as I am probably already taking a chat, or hosting a support session. I will reply as soon as I am free to though. If my icon is red I am currently offline, so won't be taking any chats. Feel free to drop a message for when I get online though!   Some things I’m doing on 7 Cups:   - Verified Listener: I passed a mock chat to become verified in the community   - Sharing Circle host I host a weekly healthy habits session 3-4pm EST on a Sunday   - Intern I’m have completed a 15 week internship with 7 cups, so feel free to message me if you have any questions about internships!   Room Supporter: I am currently a room supporter for the newbie hub community and the anxiety support community, so feel free to message me if you'd like me to start a discussion in those rooms, and I hope to meet a lot of people there :)   Content development and leadership programme: I am currently undertaking the content development and leadership programme, so feel free to message me if you would like any content created or have any questions about the programme <3   My listening Style: As a listener, I tend to reflect a lot on what you say and use this to guide the conversation through empathising and validating your feelings. I ask open-ended questions to keep the conversation flowing, and always try to follow up after a chat to see how you're doing. I tend to send detailed, quite long messages, which I know can suit some people and not others, so If you would prefer shorter messages just let me know! I'm still learning as a listener, and continuously improve. Your feedback means the world to me as it allows me to tailor my listening style to you which can really help in a chat. Of course, sometimes listening styles just don't mix, and that's okay. - I would always be happy to refer you to another listener if you feel like the chat is not helpful for you (:.    In community rooms my listening style is a little different - I don't ask many questions as there may be things you don't feel comfortable speaking about it the group chats. I also tend to be quieter if a room starts to get busy.    Thank you for reading if you got this far, congratulations ahah (: Feel free to pm me for a chat so we can get to know each other!

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  Coping skills -  Alphabet of Stress Management and Coping Skills -  Adult Pleasant Activities -  Adult Pleasant Events -  99 Coping Skills  Books -  5 love languages and then discuss it-  Mindfulness for borderline personality disorder  Contacts -  Cancer-  Cahoots-  Doctor Reviews-  Doctor Specialists-  Acupuncture-  Chiropractor-  Dermatologists-  ENT – Ear, Nose, Throat-  Find A Hospital-  Find A Physician-  Find top rated doctor in my area-  GI - gastroenterology-  Gynecologists-  Doctor search-  What to expect from visit-  Hospital Reviews-  How To Find A Doctor That Accepts My Insurance-  How To Search For Doctors That Accept Medicaid-  Massage-  OBGYNs-  Ophthalmologist and Optometrists: Similarities and Differences-  Types of Doctors-  Urgent Care-  Find a Trusted Mental Health Treatment Center for You-  Hourglass-  Mission-  NAMI-  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 800-273-8255/Text 741741 (Text Start)-  Pleasant activities list-  Couples-  Find a therapist-  Open Source Counseling-  Optometrist-  Psychologytoday-  Types of Therapists-  List of suicide crisis lines-  befrienders.org - helps you find helplines by country-  imalive.org - an online crisis chat service, for anyone anywhere in the world.-  Psych Central Common Hotline Phone Numbers-  suicide.org - List of suicide helplines-  suicidestop.com - helps you find online chat, emergency numbers and crisis hotlines for many different countries in the world-  Warmline-  White Bird-  WomanSpace  Self-help guides -  7cups  Other Links -  Abortion-  Advice for Teens-  Alcohol-  Anger and Aggression-  Anxiety-  Bible Study-  Breathing Exercises And Techniques -  Detox Local-  Exercises for Relaxation-  Problems-  Problems: Causes, Tests, and Treatments-  Coping with Depression-  Crisis hotlines the recovery group-  Depression - A majority of people experience depression at least once during their lifetime, but they may or may not be aware of it. 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.

Hello :)​​​​​​ I'm katie, happy to meet you! Firstly, I'm glad to be here for you, please feel free to message me  (◍•ᴗ•◍)  and i will get back to you as soon as possible. My response time is under 48 hours, chats typically last between {30 minutes and 2 hours} depending on support required, when chatting with me there won't be a time cap, just talking until you hopefully feel that little bit better <3Please read  through my profile before requesting me  for a session thankyou!💙No Longer Accepting Member Requests 💙​​​​​​​​​​                          ⬇️Availability :  I am typically available from 2pm - 4pm EST ​​​​​​, Monday - Saturday. (though my active time can be uncertain. Feel free to send a message whenever and I will reply to it as soon as possible. Do not expect an Immediate reply unless previously discussed or I am online ​​​​​​) I do NOT take chats on Sunday. -💙I value feedback a lot, please consider leaving a review so I can reflect on our experience💙-Thankyou for considering me to talk to :) before you read on I want to remind you that you are wonderful, beautiful, worthy and 100% deserving of support <3  In my time I have experienced my fair share of issues and Hurts, having experience in tough breakups, relationship stress, family stress, LGBTQ+ issues and relations, general anxiety, social anxiety, depression, self esteem, self worth troubles and ASD (autism spectrum disorder). If you feel most comfortable talking to someone with direct experience about the issues you're facing those are the experiences I have went through in my life ✧。*☆ But I am capable of talking about most every topic, applying those experiences and lessons to better understand you. As your situation is completely unique I appreciate every chat is a new experience, I'd be very glad to listen to you vent, provide support or simply keep a conversation☺️.Although I am capable of most topics I would like to make you aware I do not take chats with the *main focus* of the conversation being disordered eating, drug abuse or sexual health problems as these are triggering to my past experiences and I feel I may not be able to help as much as you deserve to be heard. If you are experiencing these issues you are worthy of support and you deserve to be listened to, though I may not be the best match support is still out there, I hope you can find it 💙 ​​-I will listen  ​​whole heartedly and typically take an active role when listening, so will ask open questions, give in depth responses and tend to reply to most messages though if I don't I am not ignoring you ♡ I am simply allowing you have the floor so I can better understand and hear you (if I give responses like 'mm', 'I see' 'oh?' or 'please continue' it means I am listening and letting you vent. I do care!! I'm just not interrupting you)  ☺️However like a pair of shoes or a good outfit.... You won't always find the perfect match on your first try feel free to keep searching! ☺️ Find more lovely listeners here: https://www.7cups.com/BrowseBrowseListeners Green status:I am online and taking requests /chats, please message me if you find me to be a good match, I'm 100% here for you!!! I am activeOrange status:I am online but NOT actively taking requests or chats (although I will take up chats on this colour, feel free to message and I will hopefully get back to you soon) I am most likely in forums or online in some way! Red status: there's a chance I'm online (but I'm likely not) but this means I am NOT replying or taking chats at all. Feel free to message and I'll answer as soon as I'm back online :). I am not active.  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------Some loving reminders ( ˘ ³˘)♥-♡ You are a lovely person, life can be a hard and difficult journey and at times you can forget how wonderful you truly are I'm here to remind you you're awesome!  ​​​​​​-​​​♡ You deserve respect and care, feeling alone or hurt can be such a painful thing, regardless of where you are in life you deserve respect and appreciation. -♡ You are capable and wonderful, insecurity and harsh people can make you forget what you're truly able to do, look how far you've came you're more than capable :)  -♡ You deserve great things.

Meaning i hosted for a combined of 6/7 months in my time)               - I was an assigned host for the healthy habits sessions before they got discontinued (i hosted every Tuesday since i first joined till the sessions merged with sharing circles, hosting for 9 months)        - At one point i also hosted for friendship room weekly sessions mine was self care Saturday!
