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.

Since a young age I have been very passionate about giving back and helping others. I truly believe one of my biggest purposes in life is to try to do whatever I can in my lifetime to help improve the lives of others and try to leave some sort of lasting positive impression on the world. I feel so blessed for this opportunity to connect with people around the world with whom I have so much in common. I have noticed we are all a bit optimistic, we believe in humanity, we believe in kindness, we believe in a better tomorrow.   We are all here because we believe that kind word even from a stranger can make a change. And it Can!   You never know fully what impact you have on another human being! Did you save relationships today? Did you save someone's career? someone's life? health? friendship? We never will know for sure, however, I have certainty that you changed someone's day, someone's life today   Today is (05/12/2021 or whatever the date is when you are reading this). It is a unique day. There will be 05/13/2021 / 05/12/2022,2023 etc but never again 05/12/2021😊 And we had the opportunity to live this day, for one reason or anything. Maybe it is so we can tell our grandchildren about this day, maybe today is the day you start feeling better, maybe today is the day you are finally able to accomplish something you couldn't before, maybe today is the day you finally are able to love yourself exactly the way you are, maybe today is the day you feel completely carefree and grounding, maybe today is the day.................😊   I hope I can help make this unique day better for you, to enjoy this day, to feel loved, supported, heard, understood, and whatever it is you may need to make this day all the more unique and special. The day which will never happen again in the history of humanity So I want to thank each one of you for being here, for giving me the opportunity to listen to you, for having the courage to be vulnerable, honest, and giving me an insight into whatever you maybe feeling/thinking/experiencing, and ultimately giving me the chance to not only be apart of this unique day in your life but giving me the chance to make someone's day better. Each chat I get the  fortunate opportunity to have whether it is with a member or listener is my chance to be present and listen to your valuable, unique, important, and personal story. Remember you are never alone, you matter and are needed in this world.

I’m currently a high school student in India. The reason I want to join this organization is that I want to listen, I want someone out there to know that I’m there and I’m willing to help and I will help! You see, in 9th standard I went through depression and being an introvert I didn’t tell anyone about it which made it worse. Today when I look back all I wish that I had someone to talk to someone who could just hear me out without judging, someone who I didn’t know! I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through so I WANT TO HELP! I WANT TO LISTEN! I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT I’M HERE FOR YOU! Your not alone!!

Hi! I'm here to help people who think they're alone in this world and think that they have no one to turn to. I want to make sure everyone gets heard. I also want to make sure they can have someone to talk to about their emotions and feelings and lift some burden off of their chests. Less active due to school!! But I'll try my best to answer you as soon as possible!!
