Just being there for them helps. The right tone is something that plays a important role for them to trust and open up. In turn helping themselves, which is what this service is all about.

You should try creating a virtual environment to make them feel safe, and to allow them to trust you. Moreover ,treat them as if they are really close friends with you.

There is a certain limit on how much you can help someone, be it online or in person. That being said, it realy is not about how much or how you can help someone, more often than not all we need to have is the willingness to help others and that can be done in infinite number of ways. 7 cups is one way where we can extract the benefits of helping others. By being compassionate and empathetic for all the members here who want help. Sometimes all we need is a ear for our words. That i think can be done online as well.

Be a listener here! :) Helping the community may not always be making another seven cups! It can be as simple as taking care that no one in your social circle on the internet is getting bullied or slut shamed or abused in any sense. You can help your juniors in school and at work to set up online in a safe environment. You can make videos or post documents online raising issues about things that threaten the peace of your and our community. Take care. Cheers! :)

Its important to encourage people to get ask for help.. Encourage them to talk to a therapist if they suffer from a mental illnes! Be polite and empathic! Listen to them... You can not solve all their problems right through the computerscreen. But you can support them to be strong and get the help they need.

A great way to help people online is really just to be there for them. When they need your help, or they need to talk to someone, make sure you respond positively. Try to give them the feeling that they can always bounce up from a problem.

I've lived in many states and countries. I've walked with many individuals who I've both helped and learned from. Using these experiences, I believe that I can offer troubled individuals help through communication and problem solving.

Lend an open ear to them and if you are not able to help them yourself then either refer them to another listener or a hotline for their problem.

You can just talk to them and accompany them if you feel like they need it . What i do is, when they talk about their worse situation , i tell them how things can be more worst what you have is nothing. Sometimes i do share my stories to make them feel easy and comfy.
