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.

English/German Ich kann niemanden dazu zwingen zu reden aber ich kenne die Gedanken und Gefühle wenn alles zu viel wird. Ich werde nicht nur sagen das es besser wird weil ich weiß das es nichts bringt aber ich kann gut zuhören ohne unwahre Versprechungen zu machen. I can't make you trust me I can't promise you that you'll feel better afterwards. But I know how it is if you think there's no hope and I won't only tell you that it gets better.

I am devoted to helping my fellow human beings as best as I know how using my life experience, education, and wacky sense of humor. I'm always open to simply letting someone vent, and if invited, hopefully I can speak to some of my experiences to find a common ground. I'm formerly was a Captain in the US Army Military Police Corps. I currently am an EMT and a caretaker for the elderly and also the developmentally disabled, and I've found time and time again that time spent simply talking about issues, and potentially identifying steps to assist with them is very cathartic. :) I never judge, I'm just here to help. :) "With the world so set on tearing itself apart, doesn't seem lik such a bad thing to me to put a little of it back together". - Desmond Doss

 Compassionate & Friendly Spiritual listening.  Please read full bio before writing me.  I'll be able to tell .......First please don't message me to chat.  If there is not an issue please do not message. One exception is if we are talking about spirituality.I believe our problems are connected to our spiritual health.  If we don't take a look at that then we remain unwell. If you have an open mind about spirituality then you can heal your life. I believe we need to get attuned spiritually & energetically to be able to connect with others. If you reach out to me, I may offer a different approach such a meditation or Reiki.  If you do not have an open mind or a willingness to try new things to improve your life then I am not the one to talk to.  Please consider that carefully before you pull any resources from others who are in need. Any form of sex talk will not be tolerated. If I feel you are crossing a line I will immediately block you. No fetishes, sexual relationship problems or anything that could appear to look inappropriate.Please don’t be offended if I don’t remember details. I’m trying to help a lot of people. May you all be blessed! Love ❤️ and light 🕯 and if you’ve gotten this far, if you chat me directly, tell me what kinds of music you like.  what is your favorite song and why?  If you do then most likely I’ll respond.

Hello. This is monk. There are various events in life which make u question your beliefs, which make u fell helpless. Some questions like - " WHY WITH ME?", " What i have done ". or " How i get out of this", " I tried enough but failed everytime" , " What to change all of these so desperately"... I say , lets talk about it. You have different coping mechanisms, some are at worst level, some doing fine enough to drag u well in day-to-day life. But there is still a vacuum, that emptiness remaining. So lets just speak it up. And bring back the real u in u. Take care and let the healing begin. Trust and honesty is all i have to offer.

If you're looking for someone to pamper you, I'm not the one. Instead, I'm a tight slap. I'll only talk and might show you a path. I am blunt and it could be offending sometimes. I'm wise, kind, sad, cool and cold. I speak truth and understand sorrow. And by the way, did I tell you that I'm funny?
