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.

Hi, I like to talk to people, listen to people, help people, get to know people. Everyone is different and has something unique that I and the world can learn from them. I know that things are often less than ideal, and often painful and lonely. I would love to listen, support, and care."Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”-The Talmud

Please read at least first paragraph before messaging me!Welcome, I'm glad you're here! Topics I DON'T take: career & financial stress, politics, religion, spirituality, cheating, polygamy, labels (sexuality and gender), chronic pain, disability issues. I am also happy with casual conversations or to keep you company! Or if you want some funny/cute YouTube videos.Things I have experience in: relationships/people, depression, alcohol and drug addiction, apathy, violence, managing emotions, narcissism, guilt, kinks, incest (consensual), night terrors, parenting, anger issues.Things I DON'T have experience in: break ups, dating, anxiety, lack of motivation, dwelling on things, LGBT issues, being sensitive, financial issues, strict parents, seeking validation/approval, insecurities.My chat style: I'm very patient, down to earth, I try my best to understand everything and prefer a friendlier instead of a robotic approach, but am mostly practical and logical. I don't give fake validation or tell you what you want to hear. I never disappear mid chat and reply as fast as possible. I am also quite talkative, so you can feel free to ask me anything!✰ I'm very direct and don't like to beat around the bush, so please keep that in mind if you are very sensitive. I prefer a tough love approach to life, if you get triggered easily then I'm not the listener for you. And don't be afraid to message me anytime even offline, I am very open and friendly! About me: My name is Alexis but you can call me Lex or Alex! I'm not a female. I'm 23, study medicine and worked part time as a nurse. I'm very extroverted and active with a lot of hobbies and obligations! I train gymnastics, play the violin, design clothes, paint, run workshops and I'm a big fan of horror movies and have a lot of pets. I love to travel and learn new things, meet new people. I've been through a lot in the past so I have quite the experience with many issues and people. I'm happily married to my husband and am a proud parent.✰I am fine with sexual, taboo and embarrassing issues as well, and won't judge you. But please don't make any advances towards me, ask me for my social media or demand a solution from me. I'm just a regular student doing their best, and not a licesened therapist.Thank you for reading, and I hope I can be of some help! FAQWhat's your gender really? - I get asked this so much. I'm male biologically but I just look like a woman. I didn't take any hormones and I'm happy this way.What's your pronouns? - It makes no difference to me, I do not care about such things.What's your sexuality? - I don't have one. I've only felt something for one person my whole life. Anyone else never interested me or will. And I don't see the point of labels.Why don't you take chats related to studies and career? - It's not something I'm really interested in or that knowledgeable. So it wouldn't be a good time for either of us.When can I message you? - You can message me whenever, and I'll respond when I can. But if you'd like a chat please ask me if I'm available first.Why don't you tell me what to do/give advice? - I'm not a professional therapist, I'm not the expert on you or your situation and it is against the site rules. So please don't demand answers or solutions from me.Can I ask you personal questions? - Yes you can, as long as you don't ask me information that could be traced back to me or reveal my full identity. Especially not social media.
