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.

Hey there. :) I'm AK from India. Call me Vic/Victor. I'm 17, but don't let my age fool you. I have wisdom way beyond my years, because I've personally witnessed and successfully overcome a lot of different issues in my life. I intend to use my knowledge to help you as best as I possibly can. Reach out to me if you want to let out your feelings, or if you want to share a recent happening, or if you need a friend to talk to. I'm there to listen to you and help you figure out a solution for your problem I hardly ever keep my status as online 🟢, so reach out to me anyways, even if my status may be busy🟠 or offline🔴. I don't keep my status offline🔴 on purpose usually, so if my status is red🔴, then I'm most likely not on 7cups at the moment. My timezone is IST (ET + 9½ hours). I'm on 7cups from 3am ET to 3pm ET, usually. I can definitely arrive earlier than 3am ET and stay later than 3pm ET. But, my schedule is unpredictable, so let's just assume 3am - 3pm ET as my availability. In this time period, I may not be consistently available or online, because I live my everyday life in this time period as well, so forgive me if I respond late to your texts. I take chats for a maximum of 60 minutes. Sometimes, I may take them for less than 60 minutes also, depending on the situation on my side. I can extend the time if really needed. But, let's try to deal with your issue as soon as possible.😊 I'm usually not fine with casual chats, so please don't reach out to me if you need to pass some time. I've dedicated my time as a listener to help and support those in need, not to entertain those who are bored. I can always make some exceptions, but that's entirely up to me. (Listeners and members I already talk to are allowed to PM for casual talks🙂) Just note that I have my limits and I can't handle  some extreme conversations. If I feel uncomfortable dealing with/listening to your situation, I will let you know, and refer you to another listener. Please don't reach out to me if your issue is related to sexual abuse. I'm usually not comfortable listening to such issues.Some amazing friends of mine:​​​​​​@lueurspace - My 7cups bestie, friend and elder sister. Thank you so much for being there by my side, and for being my closest friend. Your presence is enough to make me smile and happy. I don't have enough words to describe your value. I love you❤​@SuryanshSingh - My listener coach and verifier. A very lovely and helpful guy. Thanks for your guidance, Surya❤​​​@ItssssMJ - She was my listener when I first joined. One of my closest friends on 7cups. Thank you so much for being there when I needed support, MJ. You're awesome❤Shoutouts: @considerateParadise6717 @fairyava @mamtasha22 @calmingMermaid5761 @Greenchoice1 @Rhlexia520 @sia1325 @Anna706 @kieran000 @jessrabbit7 @shiningSky3745 @ShiningStars1 @EmmaE @KateDoskocilova @Starmedia @CommunityModAnne @CommunityModElliot @CommunityModJennie @richuyulin @Fristo @DonaldDraper @rrretsuko (Some more people will be added soon) Thanks for reading my bio.

I'm on a self-care break for an indefinite period of time. If you are looking for me or wondering why I am not responding, this is why! I am sorry for letting you all know this way, it's nothing personal - I am simply not well enough to be on Cups for long at this time. I will be back by July if not earlier. Please don't mind anything you see below here! This bio is under construction. I am aware that none of the links work (: About Me Hello everyone, I’m Belle. Feel free to call me Taco if you would like, or any other name, as long as it isn't "Bell." I use she/her/hers pronouns and I'm 17 years old. If you ever need someone to talk to I’d be happy to try and help. If you find me unsuitable to your needs during a chat, say the word and I can try to find someone else more equipped to assist you, or change the way I am supporting you to best fit you. You can find a list of things I have personal experience with towards the end of my profile - they are the starred tags. I like to listen and empathize with members if they’re having a hard time, and I will ask a lot of questions to try and understand more. To ensure I fully understand, I will reflect a lot of what you are saying back to you, and use the chance to validate you as well. If you are ever uncomfortable with anything I say or do, let me know right away and I will try to accommodate you. I also use a lot of emojis to try and express myself better; let me know if you’d like me to refrain from doing so, or if you’d like me to use tone indicators. Please consider leaving a review and/or a rating for me, I thrive on all feedback 💜 My Availability I prefer to keep 1-1 chats support based: please find another listener if you would like a casual chat. I host support session open chats from 9-10am ET Monday and 5-6pm ET on Saturday. In general, I am active between 2-4 pm ET every day; since my schedule changes often, I may be sporadically active outside of these times. My status colors: Green/Online 💚 - I'm active and not in many conversations, so if you would like to message me, I will probably be free to chat. This is when I will reply the fastest. Due to personal reasons I will hardly use this status color until at least the summer (for the northern hemisphere - this means June/July/August). Orange/Busy 🧡 - I’m doing multiple things at the same time, so there may be a delay in my responses to you. I promise I still care a lot! If I change my color from green to orange while chatting with you, it may also mean I’m focusing on your chat only, and will not take additional chat requests. Red/Offline ❤️ - I’m offline, or unable to take more one on one chats at this time. There will almost definitely be a delay in my responses unless you see me in group support rooms and specifically ask to private message. 7Cups Resources Browse ListenersConnect NowCrisis LinkHelp CenterThe 8th Cup (credit: @RarelyCharlie)Self Help GuidesCalming GIFsTime ConverterCommunity Guidelines Additional Links International Sui**de HotlinesNYCWellWarmlineHopelineThe Trevor ProjectQuestions before giving upRunaway SafelinePregnancy SupportResource Locator for US residentsJust Healing BLMRAINNLove is respectDomestic Violence LineSelf-Help WorksheetsSH distraction techniques (pdf)SH alternativesSH RecoveryPanic AttacksBreathing ExerciseGrounding Techniques99 Coping SkilsEmergency ComplimentAbout Mindfulness10% HappierThe Burnout BookSelf Care Starter KitDID/OSDD1 info (credit: Jun of @meowsystem)What is sexualityGenderqueer and Non-Binary terms
