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.

Notice: I am slowly easing back into the 7 Cups community following a break, so I am now taking chats, although not at a large amount. Please respect that if I redirect you to another listener for support.I can now also do some peer support requests!The following bio is outdated. Please refer to my above message for contact.I am 100% open to talking to new people! If we haven't talked before, feel free to reach out! I'd love to meet you.About me! :)Hey! I am Kira and I’m 17 years old. I'm on 7 cups because I'm passionate about being there for people and listening when they need someone to talk to. I might not be the best listener for you, but I'll always try my best to understand you and support you, even if I don't have personal experience with your topic. Although I am more comfortable talking about certain topics than others, if you really need me, I'm willing to listen to all topics. I always provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for you whenever we talk. Feel free to reach out to me at any time and I'll try my best to get back to you when I can. ❤️Note for listeners: Along with being a listener, I do also provide peer support! I'm not always available, so if it's urgent, I would suggest messaging in the TL for peer support, but, if you'd like to talk to me and you're willing to wait (if I'm not able to talk immediately), my pms are always open and you can message whenever! I'll get back to you as soon as I can.What do my status colors mean?Note: My status is normally on red so the color breakdowns aren't always applicable. If you message me, I will get back to you when I can!RED - I am not active on 7 cups at the moment. Feel free to leave me a message and I'll reply when I'm able. Typical response rate is 24-48 hours unless I state otherwise. Note: My response rate is slower due to school.ORANGE - I am currently active although I am occupied. If you message me, please be aware that I will have a slower reply rate (possibly 2-7 minutes). That doesn't mean that I don't care about you, I am just busy. Nevertheless, you can message me and I'll respond as I can. If you urgently need a listener, it might be best to go to https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/ and find a different listener there!GREEN - I am active and taking requests! I can't wait to talk to you. ❤️Roles on 7 cups Verified listener ⭐️  Peer support Care team Moderator (newbie hub, events) Support room host Safety patrol team member If you have any feedback for me, don't be scared to tell me.

Feel free to reach out and talk to someone-it helps.For members seeking support- I'd love to talk to you sometime, please feel free to pm me or book a chat here<3 I take live chats (personal requests) when my status is green, or you can pm to do an offline chat. Quick note for CT guides- I have stepped down as a leader from the Care team. I'm around as a guide but if you want to ask/inform to a leader about something then please message the sweet @MelodyOfTheOcean Please see- I am sorry if I am unavailable while you are reading this, so please talk to another listener if you want support now.

If you want to talk about your parents and a messy relationship or something, that's okie with me.) I can talk about any other topic.Members- Please go through the first part of my bio before sending me a message/request (I've indicated till where). If that seems like a lot you can simply read the highlighted and underlined portionsI chat for not more than 45 minutes at a time. I am here to listen compassionately and without judgement. The chat will be confidential.💜💜I am uncomfortable chatting about self harm (due to personal reasons) If you want to talk about it please contact another listener. Also if you are thinking about doing it now then please contact a crisis resource 7cups.com/crisisI am uncomfortable talking to members who are under the influence (of alcohol or any other narcotic substance)I am comfortable chatting with neurodiverse members and DID/OSDD systems. I do take chats about sexual assault, PTSD and LGBTQ+ issues💜💜I do take chats on sexual health (but I am very selective here). Please don't ask me to control your urges or for any inappropriate "help". Please keep in mind that this website is for emotional support, and I would appreciate it if you can be respectful and considerate.I may be unfamiliar with some of the topics you may want to talk about, but I can read up on them during the chat or in-between chat sessions...since sadly I can't know everything (though I wish I did). However if I didn't mention a topic, I am comfortable talking about it.My triggers- Self-harm (and related descriptions).(Edit- Hugs no longer trigger me, we get over triggers with time hehe)For all members- before reaching out to chat, please check my status-Red(offline)- I am offline and not replying. However you can still drop messages and I will get back to you later. Response time 48 hoursGreen(online)- I am online, free and open to your chat requests…Orange(Busy)- I am here but I already am talking to too many people here or busy somewhere on 7cups so I am unable to give you the attention you deserve. I recommend you to look for another listener by clicking here.... Response time 3-4 hours max. Note for all membersPlease note that if I am in the chatrooms and my status is offline, that means I am not currently available for chatting in the PMs.(Usually it means I am about to log out soon and therefore can't chat). In that case you can send me a PM and I'll get back to you in 48h.I do care about you a lot because you are an awesome person...I'll do my best to support you!! If I am unable to do so for any reason, please feel free to reach out to another amazing listener here. You may not be comfortable with me, and I totally respect that and want you to get the best help possible. My PMs are a safe space where you can talk about things, and I am here for you. I care for you all💜💜I have been facing memory difficulties which are really worsening lately, so I may not always remember details about what you tell me, or sometimes I might lose track of what you are talking about. I sometimes might also miss out on tags or messages for the same reason, in which case you are very welcome to follow up with me or tag me again within 2-3 days. Please bear with me on that, and remember that I am here for you, and I am trying my best. My sincerest apologies for the same.*💜sends lots of love for you💜*Please note that I do not check in regularly (since I find it hard to keep track of that), so my listening style is more like you can peek in anytime you need support. Members whom I've spoken to before are welcome to drop a message when they need support as well💜. Important note- I am a trained listener but I am not a professional therapist so I will be unable to give you advice and/or therapy-like support. You can still drop me a message if you want to talk about what you're struggling with, I'll be here to listen to you. If you are looking for professional therapy (paid) here at 7Cups and you are an adult then please click here Unfortunately 7Cups doesn't offer therapy for teens but I hope you get the support you need and deserve.Please note- I am unavailable for casual chats with anyone- be it listeners, members or friends due to time commitments.If you want to talk to me, poke my PMs anytime and I'll surely get back to you!!*💜sending comfy vibes💜*If you are willing to live chat with me, but can't spot me online, you can schedule a chat with me by clicking here or going to https://lavenderhere.youcanbook.me Looking forward to speaking to you!Please go through the part of my profile above this before sending me a request! Some Quick resources for emergenciesCrisis link here or you can chat anonymously for crisis support here.For Self harm urges, alternatives hereFor panic attacks- here are grounding techniques, more grounding techniques, breathing exercises (Youtube or Gif) and muscle relaxation   A little bit about me ;)If you have lots of extra time, then maybe you may want to read my full bio-You could call me Lavender but everyone just calls me Lav. Some people like to call me cool nicknames like Little Lav, Lave, Lavy, Law(?), Empa, or even Lab (short for laboratory- I love lab)- so if you are too lazy to type Lavender and are bored of Lav then you can call me all that.  The lovely @courageousheart96 dedicated an emoji to me (I'm so honoured hehe)- the lav heart💜💜💜💜You can use pronouns they/them for me💜💜I am an ace (asexual) and an ally for the LGBTQ+/MOGII community.Languages- I speak English, French (well I don't "speak" French well- bad pronunciation but I can write and chat in French) and I am trying to learn basic Korean. I also speak (but won't be chatting in) HindiMy trigger- self harm💜Hugs are no longer a trigger for me💜I said a lot already so I would prefer it if you don't come up with very personal questions (and please don't ask any personal questions for a second time). Please understand that is because I love my privacy and you should love your privacy too! Also I run a snack-shop here at 7Cups, so there are cookies and cakes and all sorts of awesome stuff for everyone💜As of now my primary focus is on supporting listeners on the site. Due to personal reasons it is not possible for me to be available regularly for live member support chats. I do live member chats on-and-off and I always update my bio accordingly. I am, however, always open to new members via slow pace chats.  Members are always welcome to seek support from me by exchanging offline messages with a maximum response time 48 hours from my side.My favourite place on 7Cups is the PMland- so feel free to text me anytime and I'll surely get back to you within 48h. And my PMs are a spam-friendly space for all :) 💜💜I generally reply to all PMs within 48 hours. If I'm on a break or unable to reply timely for any reason I'll surely add that to the top of my bio. If I did not reply within this time, it does not mean I'm angry or anything, because of memory issues or technical glitches I may sometimes miss messages. My sincerest apologies for the same. So in that case please feel free to send me another message. Also response time may be a bit delayed on weekends but I'll try to ensure it's within 48 hours. 💜 My roles here-💜First and foremost- I am a verified listener which means I am someone who will try their best to listen to you. Members if you want to connect with a verified listener you can click here💜I am a listener verifier, which means I can help other listeners here to get verified. So if you want to get verified, or have any queries about being verified, drop me a message! I am also a mentor leader for the VL team.💜I am a Care team Guide here. We reach out to listeners and we are basically like a buddy you can talk to- a friendly face in the PMs.So if you want us to reach out to a listener (yes that can be you too) please click here.

Sometimes the weather is not good- sometimes it is sunny and sometimes cloudy and rainy. Sometimes the rain is a storm that destroys everything. The storm felt never-ending and overwhelming. However the storm has calmed down, and is not scary and risky anymore. The sunlight comes back, but all you can see is the damage from the storm (post-trauma effects). The damage looks terrible but you can't look away from it. Here- I'll remind you- look how far you've come- you've survived the scary storm. That's amazing. There will be damage and that's totally ok. Remember you can make it through- since you survived the storms you are strong enough to slowly clean the mess and heal. That is sad as it will remind you of the storm, and the mess is huge. It takes time to clean up, but you can do this. I know you can.And to those friends of mine whose storms aren't over yet- I see you, I hear you. I know you too are doing your very best and did nothing to deserve this. It might feel like the storm will never end- it will be here forever. But the storm will be over. One day things will get better. And after that you might have to do the post-storm cleaning (or post-traumatic healing) and that is hard, but you got this. One day you'll look back on everything and be really proud of yourself- how hard you tried and how far you've come.If you feel like you are trying but tired, and scared and worried, I hear you. It is tiring to manage everything, and sometimes it is hard to talk about it. But if you want someone to be there for you- I am just one PM away. Come talk to me about it (or any other listener here). We are all here for you, and you can do it because you are amazing and brave.The end of my bio;)This bio is so long, smh so I'll stop here. Sending lots of healing beams for you, yes you amazing fairy!! You deserve love and support💜💜Please see- I am sorry if I am unavailable while you are reading this, so please talk to another listener if you want support now. Or if you want you can drop me messages and I'll reply within 48 hours. I am here for you!! My PMs are open at all times for both members and listeners! If you are an adult (listener or member) and can't PM me, you can tag me in a forum post anytime (by typing "@LavenderHere ") that way I'll get a notification and reply to you!Also random people lurking in my bio- you're welcome here (I spotted you hehe) *💜sends cookies💜*Also before I forget-💜💜Congratulations on reaching the end of my bio!!!💜💜*💜special cookies for you💜*

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, a student. 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.
