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.

Not accepting any new member chats at the moment, due to my leadership roles and personal reasons. Please use the link below to find other listeners. Thanks for understanding. Browse Listeners   Hello there. :) My name is Vic. I'm a 17 year old boy from India. I've been through a lot of issues in my life, ranging from family stress to depression and loneliness. Thankfully, I've overcome these issues now. And now, I wish to help you do the same.😊   It may seem like nobody will understand your issues, and people will judge you or make fun of you. But I promise you, I will be here for you, and I will try my best to make sure you feel heard and supported. You have nothing to be afraid of from me. I won't hurt you. ❤   I can relate with a lot of issues, and I keep learning and expanding my knowledge on different types of issues and disorders. I can support you best on the issues listed on my profile, but it doesn't mean I can't help you with other issues. There are some things I still have no idea about, and maybe, I might not be the right listener. Nevertheless, you can expect me to listen to you non-judgementally, and make an effort to understand your issue from your perspective.   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.    I hardly ever keep my status 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). My availability on 7cups is really random and unpredictable, but please feel free to send me a message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. My maximum response time is 24 hours. It can take me even longer at times, especially when I'm on break.   I take chats that last 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.😊   Please don't reach out to me if you want to pass some time, or if you're bored. I'm not here to entertain you.   Please understand that 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. I have no triggers, but I do have my limits.    Conversely, if you feel that I'm not a good match for you, or if you don't feel comfortable talking with me about your feelings, feel free to talk to another listener. I understand that not everyone will feel comfortable talking to me, and I can't help everyone who comes to me. I want you to get the best help possible 😊   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 of my roles on the site ༻━≾ ->Verified Listener  ->Teen Chatroom Star ->Chat Supporter ->Peer Supporter ->Doorkeeper  ->Chatroom Moderator (Newbie Hub, Events Team, Healthy Living) ->Project Agent for Events Team ->Listener Sharing Circle Host - every Wednesday at 8am ET ->Events Team Host - every Friday at 11am ET ->Listener Chatroom Supporter   My past involvement on 7cups : Room Supporter for Support Plus, Sharing Circle Assigned Host   My listener twin is @SofiaStardust.
