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.

To change your world, change your heart. "Mera Ghaflat mein Dooba Dil badal Dai" - Transform my heart submerged in heedlessness.My 7cups Experience and Words of Encouragement for All Cupsers:Listening is beautiful, helping another helps oneself. -This is the idea which sums up what 7cups has been for me. I feel much greater joy in being a giver than in being a receiver, for the simple fact that when you go out to receive help you are often carrying expectations and expectations often lead to disappointments and sorrow. It is good, in fact awesome, to reach out for help. It shows courage, it is an act of self-love. But I'd suggest that when you look for help, expect the least and that's how your amazement knows no bounds when you sometime unexpectedly receive a kindest of support from someone. And always look to offer a smile, a listening ear, a kind message from the heart, whatever feels natural to you and that which can be sent out from a genuine and sincere heart. And if someone expects something from you which you do not have at that time, smile and politely enforce boundaries.My interest areas at cups: I find one-on-one chats most satisfying overall, and I love to contribute ways for improving quality of listening on the site.My interest areas off cups: I learn and teach Sanskrit language and literature. I have put together this Smile growth path to help put a smile on your face expressing through your heart:Smile Growth Path With Wishes and the Quote Below, Fristo."Your heart becomes as big as a tank when it embodies kindness, any pinch of misery then, does not alter the taste of the tank."

Hello! I joined 7 Cups back in April of 2021. I do keep certain time/personal boundaries to ensure I am also taking care of myself, so please don’t take offense if I need to end a chat for the day. I take on almost any topic but if I feel I am not the best fit to help you I will refer you to our other listeners here. If you feel like you're in a crisis, please check out this helpful resource. I am a student who is very understandable to all situations of life. I have many disabilities that has shown me that we are all unique, we all live/cope different in life. None of us are the same and that’s what makes our community amazing! Forum Supporter for Disability, Support Plus, and 7 Cups InternshipPeer Supporter7 Cups Intern GraduateLeadership Development Program GraduateGroup Leadership & Dynamics Development GraduateCare Team Guide + Listener Coach By the way, my favorite song is 10,000 Hours by Dan + Shay.
