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.

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light". - J.K. RowlingHappy and sad are perpetual feelings and we all are born with it, there is no escaping from it. When you feel sad, remember this feeling is a part of you, and only a small part of your life.Its Okay. It's okay if your parents didn't understand you. That fight with your sibling disturbs you. Or your friend made a joke that hurt you. Remember, people you grow up with, they have your best interest, even when it's twisted.It's okay if you feel you've no one to tell a funny story to, to not have a friend over for a sleepover, to not have a 3 am bestie. Keep a journal, fill this emptiness with your creativity. Or sleep through your problems.I get it if you're tired of being a nice friend who listens to everyone's problem. You don't owe your life to people you spend your time with. You can just be with yourself and listen to your favorite songs or watch the movie which is your guilty pleasure.It's okay if they didn't text back. Try not to overthink things. Sometimes you got to be patient and give them space too. Even if it's your best friend or the person you like so much.Love doesn't always love you back. There is nothing wrong with you or them. You can only love someone so much. Sometimes, acceptance of rejection is all you need, to love again.Breakups are hard, for you and the other person too. Sometimes the person loosely coupled with you will easily move on, but you feel stuck. And you are not alone, almost every other half of the relationship has to go through this. You need to accept that to start the process of moving forward.It's okay if you couldn't complete that book you'd been excited about if you're lagging behind your studies or your career isn't going as you expected. You have disappointments and regrets. I get it, some things are eating you from within. Write about this feeling, write how you could endure it, and how you can win it over.Things suck, you fail, people leave but life goes on. Things get worse to get better, and then it'll get worse again. Your happiness didn't come to stay, neither your sadness. As they say, this too shall pass, as all things do. This world is a happy-sad place. We all are wanderers, and Not all those who wander are lost. "It is beautiful, it is endless, it is full and yet seems empty. It hurts us" - Jackson Pearce “You're rooted, but you flow. Like all the breeze, flowing. Your own brain is the most unaccountable of machinery. When you consider things like the stars and the moon, your affairs don’t seem  to matter much. This is the most exciting moment you have ever known. Feel your thousand capacities spring up in you" - Virginia Woolf You're unique. No piece of literature can encapsulate you, your stories, or your feelings. You deserve to be heard. So, bring your stories, share your pain, and express your happiness, I'll listen. Let's start the ripple of kindness by hearing each other out. I am not a professional but I can try my best to make you feel heard. So, text me if you feel like talking.Watchlist: https://youtu.be/WPPPFqsECz0  For time being, I am not taking Sexual health issues, PTSD, Infedility, Trauma, Grief, Depression or Chronic mental health issues. Thanks for being here!!

💬 Verified Listener 💬Fluent in : English , Hebrew and FrenchTALKING is one of the fastest, safest and most effective ways to reduce conflict, reduce anxiety, strengthen emotional connection and increase emotion💎Spiritual person with a very open heart and mind. ❤️❤️❤️❤️💎We are all here trying to make sense in this world of who we are , what we want  and how to achieve it. 🙏🙏🙏🙏💎We are all unique creatures and we all need love , kindness and compassion to live healthy meaningful lives. ☀️☀️☀️☀️💎Personal growth comes from listening to people and relating to who they are and what can I do to help them achieve their goals 🎎🎎🎎🎎Finding your Passionate and Purpose in lifeDoes it ever seem to you that everyone around you has found out what their passion and purpose is ?You , on the other hand, feel paralyzed not knowing what you are passionate about or you haven't found your purpose.Maybe you’re not sure what your purpose or passion is?Do you constantly ask yourself if you’re even meant to do something on this  Earth?Vica - versa you have so many interests that you don’t know which you should be focusing on and where to prioritise?If you relate to this and it peaks your interest , know that you are not alone we all have been through this.One of my biggest fears as a young man, I was afraid that I’ll end up living a purposeless life. Hoping that someday, my passion and purpose will reveal itself.What I lacked in my youth to realise back then that nobody will come to rescue me and show me the correct path.It was all up to me to push forward and set up my goals to reach these passions and purpose. Learning to diversifyWhen you diversify your time and derive meaning from different areas such as  hobbies, interests, passions, and purposes you get a bigger picture of leading your path .Your passions will also change as you mature since we priorities different roles at different points in our life.We shift our priorities and focus on what’s important at a particular moment in time. When looking to reach a passion and purpose the most important state of mind should be to do the most you can. In essence that is the very definition of being a really passionate person.It would be more beneficial to generate passion rather than wait for passion to come  knocking at your door.Choose your  passionate by the things that excite you.Put into the project you choose your heart and soul. "We don’t lack things to be passionate about, but we do lack the energy to become passionate without the ability to decide on the right course of action.

*No dm for supportive chats, right now, plz* 🙏 Sometimes people just needs a friendly ear to share their heart, I'll try my best to be that. SO, Let's hear it. No judgements from my side. Please remember I'm not an expert myself so don't ask for advices. Everyone is unique.  Some self-care qoutes 😌 Know your worth  Be proud, you survived the days you thought you won't.  Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today. 🚴 How to keep going 🧗PauseBreatheRepair your universe Proceed   This   Is the beginning    Of loving yourself.   If you are often feel hopeless. Breathe, your anxiety is lying to you. Everything's going to be ok. Don't allow your fear or over thinking to hold you back Just bcz you can't find happiness today doesn't mean you never will. Darkness is not forever, give yourself another chance.  Worry is Like a Rocking Chair, it keeps you busy but gets you nowhere. Repeat after me           - I'm amazing  - I'm loved   - I'm worthy    - I'm magical       - I make the world a better placeSometimes you can do everything right and still fail, and this is lifeज़िन्दगी एक सफ़र है सुहानायहाँ कल क्या हो किसने जाना🙏
