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.

Casual and simple chats only for now. All sex chat attempts will be blocked and reported. I have been here for a very long time and I have enjoyed helping many but it's time for a bit of a mental break so I'd like to keep conversations simple and casual.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ________________________________________ Hi welcome to 7 cups i am Sarah Marvel. Before you continue on reading my bio, i have to say i sometimes do not respond right after the acceptance. Because due to having internet connection issues or a private issue. But that doesn't mean i won't respond, i will respond as soon as I can. I will always try my best to respond and i will try my best to help you. And it may or may not take time but i promise you i will be there as soon as i can. And please feel free talking. Thank you! Now you can continue on reading my "Not Perfect bio": I actually don't know how do listeners make their bio look so great, but i will try to make it different in my own way. "believe in the impossible" I am an ordinary woman who is very sociable and very friendly to anyone. I don't like anyone to get mad or even get sad about anything in life. And that is one of the reasons why I came here.  I love to read books, write songs, singing, listen to music, cook, bake, talk a lot, i like to make videos, play basketball, watch movies and tv series, be a big fan of harry potter, a big fan of the flash aka Barry Allen, i have a 3 year old cat who likes to scratch me every time he sees me, i love pets, i love to sleep a lot, eating chocolate. I have never went on with life without helping. I never rejected a hand that came for help. I never thought of leaving anyone who came to me for help i thank them that they did. I came here as a listener to make peace and to make someone happy who came here to share their story which is a great courage.  I promise to respect anyone and never make someone unhappy during a listening session. It actually makes my day knowing i helped someone.  i also get active max hour but if it serious i might stay up till i satisfy you. Okay that is about me.  I am not a quick responder but is respond as soon as i can. I might make an excuse during a session, but it is always a personal important thing which comes in times that aren't suitable. But that doesn't mean that you can't ask me to help. My chat is always open 24/7 even if i am gone you are welcome at anytime to text or chat here.  There are topics that i won't agree for discussion which is : religion, racism, personal information, culture issues, bad behaviors, sex chats, bad language, hate on arabs, terrorism, etc. i will not allow also if someone tells me to do something that is not in my intention.  i will not let any one speak bad about any type of religions or about the prophets. Thank you for reading my bio. Hope you have a great day and a happy life. Please don't feel embarrassed to write a feedback down there 👇. Thank you! Special thanks to everyone who is supporting me to be a better listener.  ✋🏿✋🏾✋🏽✋🏼✋🏻 ________________________________________ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I'm just here to listen. I know how important it is to feel like you're being heard. I don't have all the answers but I think we can work together to help you feel better. While I do believe compassion is important, and I will shower you with empathy, I will also be honest with you. Sometimes the hardest person to be honest with is yourself (I have no idea who said that). I'm not comfortable with sexually related conversations but I'm here for anything else.
