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.

Hi! My name is pronounced like John with a T. I am 20 years old and just graduated with a BS in biology and double minor in chemistry and psychology. That does not make me qualified as an actual therapist but I would still love to lend a listening ear. (:

(please read through everything before messaging me ) A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME Hello! I am Parvi or more commonly known as Orange, and I am 17 this year. I hope it's going great currently, but if it's not, my inbox is always open for a chat. In the past, I have gone through a couple of rough patches, but I have learned a lot about myself throughout the journey towards recovery. If you would like to chat with me, it is best if you could use my booking form here, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeG03YJxglhAK1MxnQN-DPHZfeBdxcCT_8vWHn1M1Tpm5gO9A/viewform?usp=sf_link. Thank you! Pronouns: she/herMY LISTENING STYLE  I enjoy asking questions. My listening style mainly revolves around open-ended questions. I love to help you figure out what you need by asking questions that would help. Sometimes we may not be a match, and that's completely okay. Feel free to just inform me if you feel that I may not be the best choice for you, and I would love to help look for another listener that could be a better match. During the chat, if you do feel that I may have mentioned something that isn't right, feel free to correct me on the spot! Also, please do not ask me for my personal information or any advice as those are against the guidelines. If you continue to ask me these things, I may have to end the chat after 3 warnings. MY WEAKNESSES As a person who prioritises quality over many other aspects, I think it's only fair for me to also address my weaknesses and how I am working on them. Firstly, I would like to address my response times. I do have quite an uncertain schedule, so I may disappear in the middle of a chat. I have also recently been facing many technical issues due to my unstable internet connection. On that note, I am trying to improve my response timings as well as I am working on my internet quality. If you feel I may have not responded for more than 48 hours, feel free to send me a second pm. I would also like to note that my status colour is a great indicator of my activity. It is usually on Orange, which means I am around Cups, but I am not taking any member chats. If you pm me while my status indicates I am busy, please do not expect a response immediately. Another aspect I am currently working on is my reflection. I may not be very good at this and if you are looking for a listener with great reflection skills, I may not be the best choice. I am currently practising more of my reflections skills in hopes that one day I could reach the point where I could say I am great at it. MY ROLES  Engagement Teen Star Leader Support Team Teen Star for the Eating Disorder Sub-Community Teen Community Star for the Eating Disorders Sub-Community Safety Patroller Chat Supporter Community Moderator for Safety and Knowledge Sub Community Room Supporter for Student and Career Support Sub Community Project Agent for Around the World Translations Team Leader for the Malay Language  Team Leader for the Teen Listeners Daily Check-ins Project Agent for the Teen Listeners Room Listener Verifier Doorkeeper Group Leadership & Dynamics Development Mentor (under the 7 Cups academy)STATUS MEANINGGreen - Available to chat with members/listenersOrange - Busy doing some work here on 7 CupsRed - Offline and not available to chatMY AMAZING FRIENDS HERE ON 7 CUPS(clickable links) @Rhlexia520 - One of my sweetest mentees, really hardworking and overall amazing listeners!@BrightHeart116 - One of the kindest and the sweetest person that you could chat with. @SunnyLexi - One of the most fun people to chat with on a daily basisCHAT TOPICS I AM COMFORTABLE TAKING Depression, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Bullying, Family Stress, Forgiveness, Getting Unstuck, Managing Emotions, Panic Attacks, Sexual Health, Student LifeCHAT TOPICS I AM NOT COMFORTABLE TAKING Self Harm, Alcohol/ Drug Use, Chronic Pain, Disabilities
