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.

To change your world, change your heart. "Mera Ghaflat mein Dooba Dil badal Dai" - Transform my heart submerged in heedlessness.My 7cups Experience and Words of Encouragement for All Cupsers:Listening is beautiful, helping another helps oneself. -This is the idea which sums up what 7cups has been for me. I feel much greater joy in being a giver than in being a receiver, for the simple fact that when you go out to receive help you are often carrying expectations and expectations often lead to disappointments and sorrow. It is good, in fact awesome, to reach out for help. It shows courage, it is an act of self-love. But I'd suggest that when you look for help, expect the least and that's how your amazement knows no bounds when you sometime unexpectedly receive a kindest of support from someone. And always look to offer a smile, a listening ear, a kind message from the heart, whatever feels natural to you and that which can be sent out from a genuine and sincere heart. And if someone expects something from you which you do not have at that time, smile and politely enforce boundaries.My interest areas at cups: I find one-on-one chats most satisfying overall, and I love to contribute ways for improving quality of listening on the site.My interest areas off cups: I learn and teach Sanskrit language and literature. I have put together this Smile growth path to help put a smile on your face expressing through your heart:Smile Growth Path With Wishes and the Quote Below, Fristo."Your heart becomes as big as a tank when it embodies kindness, any pinch of misery then, does not alter the taste of the tank."

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 studies in Psychology and Management. I am passionate and read incessantly 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!

My name is Shneur, and I'm currently a Yeshiva (seminary) student working on active-listening skills and trying to help out others :). I really want to work in clinical therapy, specializing in helping individuals suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I personally know how devastating the disorder can be, and I want to do my part to ease the pain of those suffering from it. I'm a proud Orthodox Jew, but I'm still completely comfortable talking with anyone of any faith, or lack thereof :). I love jogging, studying the Talmud, hanging out with my friends, reading fiction novels, learning new languages, playing Settlers of Catan, and watching shows like Cobra Kai and The Crown. Looking forward to chatting with you! Feel free to leave me a message to chat or set up a time to chat :). Feel free to call me Shneur, Z, or ShneurZ - whatever you feel comfortable with! I currently speak/partially speak/am learning the following languages to some degree/fluently (I love casual chats about linguistics, so if that's an interest of yours, I'd love to hear about it!). As a result, I can provide full support in the first two languages (English and Hebrew) and minimal/technical support (such as directing you to a listener who speaks your language fluently) in the other six:I speak English fluently!

Additionally, I am experienced in chatting about OCD as someone who has it and understands how it feels. OCD can be an extremely debilitating and frightening disorder - if you feel you might be or are suffering from OCD/obsessive thinking, I would be happy to chat about it with you :).  שתהיה כל הפעילות שלי כאן לזכר נשמות נחמן דניאל בן אריה צבי ז"ל שנפטר יום ל"ג בעומר ה'תשפ"א ודניאל מאיר בן מרים ז"ל שנפטר בראש חודש תמוז - שיתעלו נשמותיהם בגן עדן במנוחה המתאימה לצדקותם Things that I can chat about: Anything listed in my topic list!  Things that I can't chat about: Sexual Health, LGBTQ+ Issues, and Spiritualiy other than if it pertains to Judaism In Memory of Nachman Daniel ben Aryeh Tzvi z"l, who passed away on April 30th, 2021 and of Daniel Meir ben Yisrael z"l, who passed away on June 11th, 2021 - May Their Memories Be Blessed Important Things to Keep in Mind - You will not face judgment of any kind in our chats - I will respect you and your feelings - I will ensure your confidentiality - none of your details or the content of our chats will ever be traceable back to you, and you can remain 100% anonymous - You are free to share anything and everything you like - save for expressions of bigotry and intolerance, inappropriate sexual talk, and intentionally offensive uses of language - I will not be providing advice - this is because only you know your situation best.

Quotes I Love!אם תירצו, אין זו אגדה - If you will it, it is no mere dream - Theodore HerzlIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -  President Theodore RooseveltEbla estas fortecon trovi en ĉiuj el ni, iuj jam ĝin trovis, aliaj ne, sed brulas fajro en ĉiu homo ke ne neniam estingiĝos, eĉ ne povas oni ĝin senti brulanta - Strength can be found in all of us, some have found it already, others not, but a fire burns in every person which can never be extinguished, even if you can't feel it burning 🇮🇱לדוברי עברית🇮🇱  שלום וברוכים הבאים לפרופיל שלי! קוראים לי שניאור, ואני תלמיד בישיבה בישראל. דעו שאתם לא לבדכם למרות איך שתרגישו, כי אני אנסה תמיד להיות שם בשבילכם! להגיד קצת על עצמי (כדי שהשיחות שלנו יהיו רק עליכם!), אני בן 18, תלמיד בישיבה ומתרגש להמשיך את הלימודים שלי בשנים הבאות ולהיות רב ופסיכולוג! אני יהודי דתי גאה, אבל אין זה משפיע על היכולת והנוחות שלי לדבר עם משתמשים מכל מקום, של כל דת, גזע, או מוצא - כולם מתקבלים כאן! אני מתמחה באלה התחומים הבאים: חרדה כללית, הט"כ (הפרעה טורדנית-כפייתית), רוחניות, חיי תלמיד, לחץ יחסים, ולחץ משפחה. אני יכול לשוחח איתכם על כל נושא שתירצו, אבל אני מתנצל, אני לא זמין לדבר על התעללות/אלימות במשפחה.  הערה חשובה: כמישהו שסבל וממשיך לסבול מהפרעה טורדנית-כפייתית, אני מנוסה במיוחד בשיחות על הנושא הזה. אם אתם סובלים גם ממחשבות אובססיביות או כפיות, אני מזמין אתכם לשוחח עליהן איתי במרחב בטוח ונוח למי שרוצה לשוחח איתי בעברית בבקשה להודיע לי אם את/ה זכר או נקבה כדי שאוכל להשתמש בכינויי הגוף המתאימים לך. תוכלו לעשות את זה בטופס לקביעת פגישות שתמצאו בראש תיאור הפרופיל שלי. אני מתרגש לשוחח איתך :).

Hello! I chose the picture of an apple because it represents to me growth and potential. The apple can grow to become the best apple it can be. I think we all have potential, and I also believe that most people are not solely good or bad- we are a combination of light and dark. That's just human nature. I've been here since 2013, and I am now in my 30s. I have always been told I'm a good listener and person to come to. People have come to me years after talking to them because they remembered I was someone to confide in. I like to think of myself as open minded, non judgmental, and compassionate. I try to be honest, but tactfully so. I find the best people in my life are those that tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and that is something I practice with others. I hope to be here for you, and I will cheerlead you on. I cannot give advice, but I will be a support for you. I take casual chats, so even if you're just bored or need someone to talk to and don't have a pressing issue, I am happy to talk to you.  My strengths lie in the subjects I have listed on my profile, so I will not be the best fit for everyone (and that is okay!). I hope everyone can get the help they need from whoever it is, even if it's not me. If I cannot help you, I will let you know and try to connect you with someone that can. I do the best with chats that can be asynchronus, as my schedule varies and I don't want to promise I can sit down for a real time chat if I cannot. That is unfair to both of us time wise, and time is a precious thing. Updated July 25, 2020 As of July 1, I have joined the admin team as a Quality Specialist for the volunteer community. I am still involved in all the things below, but as I am now involved widely across the site in different ways, if you need to know who to talk to regarding any of the below activities, please PM me and I will direct you to who you should talk to whether it be me or someone else. Activities/Positions I am involved in include: Quality Ambassador, Chatroom Mentor, Forum Key,  Peer Support, Chat Support help, Adult/Teen Listener, Teen Quality Mentor, Group Mod, Safety Patrol Team.

Note: Due to the high workload associated with my current roles, and my continued focus on self-care, I may be unable to reply to your message right away. Members, please feel free to browse listeners here to find another Listener who will be able to support you.About Me Hi! My name is Ethan, I am 19 years old and I am an Adult-Teen Listener from the UK. I have struggled with my mental health for some years now, but I am on the road to recovery. Being able to support people in similar situations to myself is extremely fulfilling and is something I am very passionate about. My 7Cups Journey I started Listening on 7Cups in March 2018, and since then I have worked in various community roles. I went inactive from June 2020 due to personal reasons as the Covid-19 pandemic took a big hit on my mental health, but returned in May 2021. I have worked in the Teen Only Zone as a Forum Supporter, moving on to become a Forum Teen Star and then joining the Forum Leadership Team as a Project Agent. I am also a graduate from the 7Cups Internship, which I completed in November 2019. Following this, I began work as an Internship Teen Star and then Mentor, offering support to other Interns. Around this same time I began working as a Quality Teen Star and then Mentor, and joined the Listener Coaching team. Other roles I have worked in include Peer Supporter and Listener Verifier.Current Roles/Commitments I have been verified as an active and high-quality listener I am an Adult-Teen listener (I have been interviewed and had a background check to be able to work with the teen community)I am an Intern Mentor (If you are an Intern and have any questions/worries or are in need of any support, please feel free to reach out to me)I am an Internship Graduate as well as a Leadership & Development Graduate.Availability (Compare to your local time here: https://time.is/compare)My timezone is BST (London, UK)Online: 4pm - 5pm (weekdays)This is when I am both available and online/active on 7Cups.
