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.

Hello there! This is Star. Welcome to my listener profile. This is a safe and inclusive space for all. My listening style: You will have a safe space to vent out and speak your mind. Sessions last for about 60 minutes wherein my attention is solely on you and you only. I like to start out each conversation by drawing out a plan so as to keep the chat centered towards your needs. There will be no opinions, judgement or advice from my side and my goal will always be to truly listen and show understanding. I am very resilient and open-minded, nothing shocks me or makes me panic and I am hoping to bring these aspects in my role as a listener. If you feel lost or stuck, I would be very happy to brainstorm ideas with you.My availability: Feel free to send me a text at any time, preferably stating your issue in brief. I am generally slow to respond on weekends (Friday through Sunday) as they are my self-care days. However, you are free to leave me offline messages!My roles on 7cups: - Quality mentor - Anonymous evaluations teamListeners: Feel free to use this link to book a mentoring session with me!

Hello! I chose the picture of an apple because it represents to me growth and potential. The apple can grow to become the best apple it can be. I think we all have potential, and I also believe that most people are not solely good or bad- we are a combination of light and dark. That's just human nature. I've been here since 2013, and I am now in my 30s. I have always been told I'm a good listener and person to come to. People have come to me years after talking to them because they remembered I was someone to confide in. I like to think of myself as open minded, non judgmental, and compassionate. I try to be honest, but tactfully so. I find the best people in my life are those that tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and that is something I practice with others. I hope to be here for you, and I will cheerlead you on. I cannot give advice, but I will be a support for you. I take casual chats, so even if you're just bored or need someone to talk to and don't have a pressing issue, I am happy to talk to you.  My strengths lie in the subjects I have listed on my profile, so I will not be the best fit for everyone (and that is okay!). I hope everyone can get the help they need from whoever it is, even if it's not me. If I cannot help you, I will let you know and try to connect you with someone that can. I do the best with chats that can be asynchronus, as my schedule varies and I don't want to promise I can sit down for a real time chat if I cannot. That is unfair to both of us time wise, and time is a precious thing. Updated July 25, 2020 As of July 1, I have joined the admin team as a Quality Specialist for the volunteer community. I am still involved in all the things below, but as I am now involved widely across the site in different ways, if you need to know who to talk to regarding any of the below activities, please PM me and I will direct you to who you should talk to whether it be me or someone else. Activities/Positions I am involved in include: Quality Ambassador, Chatroom Mentor, Forum Key,  Peer Support, Chat Support help, Adult/Teen Listener, Teen Quality Mentor, Group Mod, Safety Patrol Team. Uhh on
