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 conversations are welcome!* Hey everyone! I'm Krishanth. I'm back here after taking a much needed break. While I was on a break I realised something really important.. I believe life is not about making money, working hard and doing it all by yourself. My belief is something as this "You go out, you seek for people who need your help and you make their lives better." I'd like to become a sponge that absorbs all the negativity and become that person who can emit those beautiful vibes and positivity. When I realise that I have changed someone's life and because of me this person didn't give up, that is the day when I live, always! I'm positive, together we can see the world from a different perspective. I'd be more than happy to be a part of your journey and hold your back throughout. Please do not hesitate to send a message, if I'm offline kindly leave a message and I'll get back to you at the earliest.  Hey? I'm looking forward to talk to you, beautiful soul!

Hello, and I hope you are having a wonderful day! If you are, then I'm happy for you! If you aren't, then I'm here for you. I know times are tough right now, but I promise things will get better, and I will be here for anyone if you need it. And please don't be afraid to reach out; this is a judgement-free zone for all of us to grow. Please approach me for support at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Please remember that no matter who you are, I genuinely wish nothing but the best for you! Love,The Good FairyP.S.  I am on the ace spectrum as well as a survivor of r*pe.  If you identify with either of the two, please come talk to me and I will 100% empathise and be here for you.  However, I have gotten quite a few members coming to me to talk about the act of s*x and an addiction to it; please understand that I am both inexperienced in and triggered by that line of conversation.  So as much as I wish for you to get the support you need, if the conversation goes down that line of thought, I think another listener can do more for you than I can.  Thank you for understanding.

Quote: "You have three choices in life. Give up, give in, or give it your all. So remember that falling down is part of life and picking yourself back up is part of living."       Especially in this time of crisis, its easy to find yourself feeling stress, anxiety, sadness, and negativity. I know what that's like. But no matter how many obstacles the world throws at you, find another way, because the only way to get to tomorrow is by living today. And if you ever need someone to help you get through today, know that I'm here. I'm listening.

Note: Due to the high workload associated with my current roles, and my continued focus on self-care, I am unfortunately unable to take on any new Member chats. 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 a Trainee on the Leadership Development Program (because of this I may not be able to respond to your messages even if I appear online)I am an Intern Mentor (I am currently on my trial period)I host a listener quiz/game night in the Friendship Room every Friday at 12pm ETAvailability (Compare to your local time here: https://time.is/compare)My timezone is GMT / BST (London, UK)Online: 1pm - 3pm (Weekdays)This is when I try to be online and active on 7Cups.
