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.

Don't be shy, it's really brave of you to be reaching for someone here!I believe that every single person deserves love, care and compassion, and listening is a way to care about people. Being listened to is something really important, and I'd like to let you know that I'm here to listen to you kindly, with patience and to help you become your best self. You don't have to do it alone. It would be a huge pleasure to talk with you, so leave me a message if you want to, I'll answer as soon as possible! Take care, and remember: you are amazing! Important: I won't take any chats related to sexual issues, since I'm not qualified for it.

I may not be able to take any chat at the moment. You're still able to leave me a message!🔴 Offline: I can't take any chat at the moment.

Our conversation will entirely be centred on you. I accept diversity and individuality in all forms, and nothing will ever be too much for me to not be able to treat and respect you as a person. I look at behaviour and identity through a spectrum and acknowledge their fluidity. In listening, I try building a safe place for you where you can freely vent about your thoughts but know that I do not have the solution to your problems. Learn more about what you can expect from a listener here.  I feel that listening sessions are ideal when the member expresses their thoughts without reservation. I am comfortable dealing with negative emotions even if they're directed towards me. I don't want anything stopping you from asserting yourself. I am unable to take long-term members presently because of my commitments (read more about long-term listening here). But I will be glad to follow up with you every once in a while.I need your feedback to get better at what I do so feel free to bring it up during the conversation.Generally available from 2:30 AM-11:30 AM EST (although you can text me anytime- I promise I'll be chill). 7 Cups has a wide range of communities that you can explore here. Various forums cater to general discussion/support, mental health concerns, and a few others. For the forum on general support, click here. If you're experiencing anxiety or overwhelming thoughts, I suggest checking mindfulness exercises here.Happy to answer any questions.

Hey, nice to meet you! I'm Abi :) I’m a powerlifter/personal trainer from the UK.I have dealt with ADHD and anxiety for most of my life, so I am best at discussing these issues alongside anything exercise related. I tend to only accept personal requests. Sending me one of these or dropping me an offline message is the best way to get hold of me. Although my schedule is a little inconsistent, I try my best to get on every day even if it's only for a short while. Note: I do not take topics about abuse, sexual issues or drug use. They are topics which make me extremely uncomfortable and contacting me regarding one of these will result in being blocked immediately.

A curious entrepreneurial spirit.                    !! iitian !! Life is short live to its fullest... Follow your passion and you will have no time left with you to feel sad and depressed... God has a plan for you.... Feel free to share your emotions, feelings,stress and we will try to figure it out together.... Whenever in doubt, just smile😊 Ps:- Don't come up with a fake story because experienced listeners will catch you in a minute. If you just wanna make casual conversation then it's okay as a human we understand emotions sometimes you just need a person to talk , share your feelings and etc. And I truly respect it because it happens with me too often. Cheers 🥂
