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.

Hi there! I am currently on a self-care break. Feel free to Browse Listeners here: https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/ for a listener who is currently available to chat. <3   Hi I'm Solome or Solo for short :) (she/her) My interests: I'm an introvert who likes to be by myself a lot and pursue creative activities, but I am slowly coming out of my shell to try to be more social. I also like being out in nature.  My strengths as a Listener: Life is not easy, but I hope provide a safe haven where I can help you feel heard and supported. I particularly like taking chats on loneliness. I get lonely too so I understand it, and in general I enjoy casually chatting or just listening to someone else. My availability: I am located in CST. I may not respond to messages right away but try to respond within 24 hours. If I am away we can always schedule a time to chat :) My profile picture: I took a few quizzes and it turns out my spirit animal is the turtle, which actually makes quite a bit of sense to me. Overall I take my time with things in life but I can also have productive spurts every so often (turtles move slowly on earth yet are also fast and agile in water). Check back as I edit my pic in accordance with holidays/seasons. 😁 Fun facts about me: On why I chose my username, I have a female ancestor whose first name was Solomé. I looked it up and it's derived from the Hebrew word shalom, meaning "peace." 🥰 I also like to practice mindfulness and meditation.

🌼 Hello there and welcome to my bio 🌼** On break. I am currently innactive. Not answeing pm's. Please don't message. <--- Starting June 15th** If someone asks me if I like myself, to be honest I wouldn't know how to answer. I love myself for who I am yet I fight to earn my spot. I am someone who tries to overcome anything life throws at me yet feels like giving up half of the time. I love iced coffee yet  hates coffee. I am social and love talking with others but I'm shy. I am always changing weather it's my interests or my personality. Even with these difficulties in everyday situations, I know that none of this defines who I truly am. Hi, I'm Émily-Jane! It's so glad to know your reaching out, I want you to know I am proud of you. As a listener and human being myself, I have gone through many things and still do. Life kicks usaround at times and I agree, it can be very hard. But life is like a roller coaster; we have our ups and our downs. And life is like riding a bycicle; to keep our balance, we must keep moving. My story is going to be forever filled with ups and downs. For me, beauty begins the moment you decided to be yourself. When I feel a little down, I put on my favorite music on and dance like no one is watching. Never a failure, always a lesson. You may see me struggle, but you'll never see me quit.  Everyone has a different story. And that is what makes us ourself.  Each story is unique and deserves to be heard. To whoever reading this, I want you to know I am here for you. It's amazing to see that you have taken a step to reach out for support. It takes a lot of courage to do that. I may not have experience with what you have been through, but I know how hard it can be. I will always provide a supportive and respectful listening ear. Take your time <3🌼 About me 🌼 My name is Émily-Jane My pronouns are she\her I am a surfer, volleyball and hockey player I am currently battling cancer  I have anxiety and asthma I speak full fluent in bot English and French My personality type is ISFJ 🌼 My listening style 🌼My listening style is a bit different from others although I can always change it up a bit if you'd like! During our chat, I will provide a supportive and non-judgmental listening ear and a comfortable place to talk. Your story deserves to be heard. I care for you. I may not have direct experience with what you are going through but I can tell you, I know how hard it is. My chats usually range from 20 to 40 minutes depending on the topic. I am not comfortable taking chats about: - sexual health\Sexual assault - alcohol\drug use  - DepressionTopics I am comfortable taking and have experience with are:- Self Harm - Anxiety - Breakups - Cancer - Self Esteem 🌼 My roles 🌼I am a verified listener I am a Chatroom Moderator for the Positive & Gratitude  and Self Harm Recovery subcommunities I am a Forum supporter for the AS subcommunity I am a Peer Supporter which means I can offer support to listeners after a hard chat🌼 My listener twin 🌼@KatieTheBigRockOne - Katie is one of the sweetest person I have ever met. She always brightens up the rooms and brings so many smiles to faces. She is heart warming and very supportive <3 Great person to have a conversation with. @EmikoKokoro - Emi, my twin name haha! Emi is a wonderful person, and always makes me laugh. Emi is a great leader and friend, beyond sweet, kind, supportive and caring! 🌼  Other friends of mine  🌼@bouncySalamander26 @Daf8  @Dino12 @Tami150 @Starmedia  @Listeningsarinn @ashlyntheordinary @Azalea98 @enchantedlove  @cuteOrange213 @DreamTouch @MishiS @TheResilientDancer @SophiaSanae @SuryanshSingh A special shoutout to my loving friend ever, Kayla. You are such an incredible person with a huge heart of gold. Once you set your mind to something, there is no stopping you. And that is one of the many things I admire about you. You are amazing, sweet, lavish, caring loving, much more and most important, you are you. I don't know what I would do without you on my journey!  🌼 My triggers 🌼When chatting with me, please try to refrain from using the word "Oh" or "K" as it triggers me more than anything. Also, please don't call me "hun" or "love" if we haven't talked a lot. 🌼 Thanks for visiting my profile 🌼

I know what it is like to feel alone and unheard. I want to be able to provide a safe place where others can let go and vent about things on their mind without being judged. Reaching out is hard and so I want to make it easier for others and to remind them that it is okay not to be okay. My sole reasoning for joining is to help others and make sure they have someone to talkk to and feel less alone. 🌼⚡️How I listen⚡️- I will be there the best I can. I will have fast response times, and I will validate you. I make sure you know that your feelings are valid and that no matter what you are going through, you are not going through it alone. I will help push you to find ways to cope and better understand your situation, but will not do the work for you <3 I will ask open-ended questions, and will give you the safe space you need. <3My special listeners  My Listener Sibling: @Listeningsarinn My Listener Go to: @EmmaE  My PS Twin @LoveLilly My TQS Twin @sophiasanae  My Hosting buddies: @Starmedia, @vivelespatates, @fairyava, and @roweerainn123 My Listener twin: @dajia215 Other listeners I truly appreciate and won't forget: @AnnaListens06 ,  @EvelyneRose , @whenitsdarklookforstars , @itssoren , @kieran000 , @starmelon7 , @calmingMermaid5761 💘I want you to remember that its okay not to be okay. It is okay to struggle, It doesnt make you weak. You all matter and the world shines brighter with you in it. Sometimes we have to take a step back before we can move forward and thats okay. Life can be tough, but you are even tougher. Recovery may be hard but it isnt impossible.  HOPE stands for Hold On Pain Ends. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are enough. Never forget that. 🔐"If you want to fly, give up on everything that weighs you down."- Buddha💞
