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.

New: My time zone has changed from Pacific Time to Chungyuan Standard Time.*under construction* Update: I am really sorry, but I am not currently taking any member chats at the moment. In the meantime, here are some amazing listeners, and I hope you will be able to find a listener that can support you best :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~If anyone asks me who I am, to be honest, I would not know what to say. I am a cis female that still questions her own sexuality. I am someone who cares about school, yet I don't. I am someone who loves friends, yet I am not exactly social. My interests are ever-changing, and everything is sort of all over the place. However, despite all the questions in my head about who I am, there is one thing I am sure about: it is my story. Every story is special in its own ways, yet sometimes our stories are not heard, and stepping outside our comfort zone to share is very hard. I am very proud to see that every one of you took the first step and made a member account whether it is for support or just for the sake of having one. I won't pretend to understand what you are going through because I truly don't. I have not been in your shoes and neither have I experience what you had, no matter how similar our stories may be. I won't promise you will feel better and that everything would get better because we really do not know, but from the bottom of my heart, I still hope that I can support you the best that I can. Some topics that I have dealt with are depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+, self-harm, sleeping well, loneliness, self-esteem, and many more in varying degrees. I would love to talk about these issues; however, please note that I will not be sharing my personal experiences with these issues because I would love to focus on listening to your story. My listening space is a safe place for those who would like to talk about any issues from DID to sexual health without any judgement. Each person is different, and my style may not exactly match up with yours, which is perfectly alright! There are also some other wonderful listeners that you may want to check out here! And welcome to my profile. I am Day/Dream, and I am very excited to get to know all of you :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My Availability: Green - I am online for both member and listener-related chats. Orange - I am only online for listener-related chats and may be in-and-out, but I will reply within 30 minutes. Red - I am fully inactive and logged out of the site. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~To everyone:  My private message response time is now 24-48 hours! If I do not respond within 2 days, please send me another message, and I apologize in advance. My account is also prone to several 7 cups bugs, so there will be times where I am unable to send messages, and I usually update in my bio when that happens. Additionally, please note that if I am around in a particular area (chatrooms, forums, or private messages), it does not mean that I will be active in another area. Thank you for understanding!Growth pathways: Love Yourself with BTS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Some things about me: My Pronouns are: she/her/hersAbout my interests: If you have seen me around, you'll know that I am super into music, and my taste in music changes every week and sometimes even daily. I love reading, and I can't express the happiness reading brings to me; it's definitely a place I go to release some emotions or maybe to feel some emotions (if that makes any sense). I am also a huge k-drama addict, and I am a multi-fandom k-pop fan. Something more general, I am very passionate about bullet journaling, animals, and I also swim occasionally.About my personality: I am an advocate and a mediator (INFJ-T and INFP-T). I am a very straightforward and open-minded person. I am the kind of person that takes a while to open-up, so sometimes I may seem reserved. I can also always see the positive aspects of any situation and can understand multiple sides of every story.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Some super awesome listeners: @avagracii - Avaaaa, my listener twinniee :) I want to give a huge thank you to her for always being there for me, especially the beginning of my listening journey, and being her wonderful self. She is really amazing and super compassionate and sweet, and did I mention she loves animals as much as I do?@cocoakrispies121 - Cocoaaa! I really don't know how to phrase it properly, but she is one of the most amazing people I met. We actually joined around the same time, have similar roles, and even take breaks around the same time. She is honestly super supportive, and I really can't say how delighted I am that I met her!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "there is no greater agony than an untold story inside you" ~ Maya Angelou

Hello to the amazing person reading this. I'm here to help total strangers deal with all too familiar problems. If you just want someone to listen to you and understand you, I hope to be able to do that for you. Asking for help and speaking about our problems is really hard. So if you're here, you've already overcome a huge hurdle. So if you want to talk or just need someone to vent to, I'm here .This is a completely non- judgemental space, where you are accepted just the way you are because you are doing the best you can and that makes you all the more amazing .

Temporarily, I will only take chats with members of the Trauma Subcommunity (due to a peak on other 7 Cups roles and responsibilities.)   My name is Marcelo, I am from Argentina. I once bumped on 7Cups, looking for help. Some novice Listeners helped me a lot. I got hooked with 7Cups. I promised to reciprocate the wonderful gift 7Cups gave me. I moved to Listener, and was deeply moved by the lovely people I interacted with. I was also surprised how much they appreciated me talking to them. I since decided that I wouldHELP ALL THAT COME TO ME, TO THE FULL EXTENT OF MY ABILITIES. I am interested in many spiritual traditions, particularly Existentialism, the Stoics, Tibetan Buddhism, Muslim Sufism, Advaita Vedanta Hinduism, Taoism, and Zen (which taught me the meditation technique I use). I am a devoted long term learner. I have studied about almost everything, from Prehistory, Particle Physics, Philosophy of Mind, to Biology, Cosmology. You name it.  I strongly recommend browsing Coursera and edX for the amazing offer of free high-quality courses on all subjects, generously offered by Universities from all around the world. I am very curious about Reality in all its facets. I try to live in wonder, and studying about it helps me a lot. I have sung in choirs all my life (Bach mostly), I paint watercolors, and love taking photos. Love trekking the mountains and collecting rocks along the way.Note: I feel uncomfortable with issues of "Arranged Marriages", so I prefer not to take them.  I cannot tolerate disrespectful talk against women or any kind of hate-speech. I might ask to end the chat under those circumstances.
