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.

- Due to the COVID19 Crisis and self-quarantining I've decided to use my time to rediscover the platform and my love for listening. I hope I can support you through these difficult times :) -  Hey!Great that you found me here on 7cups. My screenname here is MoonlightPrimrose, but you can call me Vic or Ellis if you want. My pronouns are they/them and he/him.I'm currently starting a career in the film industry, I love great images, stories, light, movement and cameras as well as working on set, with as many interesting people as possible. Apart from pursuing film like nothing else ever before, I like to draw, sew for my LARP characters, play DnD, game, eat good food and bullet journal from time to time. I am also very queer. I use a lot of different words and labels to describe myself, depending on people and situations in my life. Some of them are: trans*, non-binary, masculine-of-center, greyromantic, or simply queer.Feeling alone, overwhelmed or sad is something I know, but I also know how much it helps to just talk to someone... It's not always a solution to every single problem, but it's often a relief to know that there are people out there who care for you and who know what you are going through. I experienced some struggles with bullying, school and family stress, anxiety, coming out and other issues of queer (gender) identity myself so I might be able to relate to some feelings you have and help you deal with them.Just send a message if you need to talk about something. I'm currently only available on weekends for scheduled chats, but feel free to leave me a message at any time and we can figure something out that works for both of us!  Never forget: You are not alone. You don't have to do this alone. It's no shame to ask for help. #AlwaysKeepFightingAs you might have noticed: I'm from Germany and German is my native language. So if there are fellow Germans out there who want to talk, schreibt mir einfach, dann können wir natürlich auch Deutsch reden :)- Vic -

I'm a musician, and I have many pets, including cats, fish, and a bearded dragon.  I am currently a full-time psychology student studying to become a therapist (in the future).  I'm here to help!  Enough about me: let's talk about you!  I listen to any topic, but my best topics are: breakups, relationship issues, and anxiety. You can see a full list of topics I have personal experience with below.  Let's talk! *Disclaimer: I am not a professional of any sort, and I am certainly not an expert on your life (but you are!).  For this reason, I cannot offer advice of any kind.  I can, however, listen to you vent, support you, help you analyze your emotions, let you bounce ideas off me as you brainstorm your next course of action.

Feel free to reach out to me at any time and I'll try my best to get back to you when I can. ❤️Note for listeners: Along with being a listener, I do also provide peer support!

I love interacting with people & will be very happy helping people deal with discomformt they are facing. I feel talking to someone anonyms helps you open up on your issues & you get new perspective on your problems. I feel mental health is more important than physical health & talking to someone definitely helps to improve your mental stability & can guide you in your decision making.
