Be compationate, kind give a listening ear don't judge. Put yourself in their shoes and be the friend they need.
Simply listening to another person online is enough to allow them to release some tension and emotion and to move some energy positively. So not much need be done, simply listening well as per the 7cups professional instruction is enough truly to make a difference, albeit sometimes an unnoticeable one! :)
You can help them by joining this site! or if you know people in need just be there and message them.
the best thing you can do is listen to their issues and showing them their not going to be judged and they can always come back and talk to you whenever things are getting on top of them.
There are many online counselling portals through which you can help people online. 7 Cups of Tea is one of the popular & free site.

I try to be as empathetic as I can and treat them like they are the most important person in the World.
listen to them carefully, try to identify there problem and how severe their problem is . Incase of very severe level give them the help line numbers
You can listen to their problems and be their mental support and helper. Being an online helper is hard because it needs very much multitasking and going through alot of things in life, but I highly recommend you to do it.
You can help them by being there for them. Being a friend and listener at the same time. There is not much we can do directly, but we can always be there for them with open arms.

In a world filled with people it's astonishing that so many feel alone. Social media is a great way to reach others and make a difference. From listening to validating ones feelings, it is possible to make a difference. I am personally here to provide empathy and support any way I can.
I've tried to do this for years, on random chat sites, on social media, all of it. I really have to say that the most efficient way is to become a listener on 7cups. Plus, this is also where my efforts have shown the best results. Thanks for caring. You're awesome.
Be empathic and try to understand them. Ask them questions in a friendly way and show interest, that will help.
When you're 16 or older you can sign up here to become a listener. If you become a listener you will be helping people who come to this site for help, it's always great to get a new listener
This site is a great forum to do exactly that! You can become a listener, if you are not one already.
Show empathy and be willing to be by their side, show that you care. And, try to relate if you can.
You can try offering them advice and letting them know that you, yourself are offering an open heart and an open ear. Try to show empathy and compassion as well.
I can help people online by listening to them, trying to understand them and taking the time to listen and empathise with their situation. I can help someone work out what they feel they need and work with them so they get where they want to be. I can help people by just being their support.
Try to understand their situation and be kind, always be open minded no matter what the situation is.
Hey...we can help people online by telling them their importance.. By showing them new brighter ways to cope their problems. By listen them by motivate them and changing their negative views into optimistic approach😃
The best way, which is one of the few ways a counselor or a psychotherapist would do in their own training, is to actively listen and embody what the other person needs.
The most important thing is to show them that you are there to listen to what they have to say. Maybe they're in a situation there is nothing you or they can do about, but the support you're giving them is always helpful.
You can help people by just being there. It may not sound like a lot but to that person it may mean the world.
There are many ways you can help, you can for instance become a listener on 7cups and be there for people and listen to them, you can read through forums and give your opinion on the matter :)
There are lots of ways to help people online in need. Firstly you'd have to figure out who they are and secondly what they need help with. This is why I use 7cups. It's a convenient and wonderful site where you can help people online through a secure platform. The most important thing to consider when dealing online is, after all, security.
You could just be there for them by listening to them, talk to them... Sometimes, feeling that someone cares about you is what makes you continue in life.
There is only so much that you can do when it's someone online. If they are in immediate danger, ask them to call 911 (or their country's emergency number). Besides that, you can recommend that they talk to a listener, refer them to a suicide hotline, crisis hotline, etc., and give them other resources. There's not much more that you can do though, sadly.
It is best to let the person know that you are there, and are willing to listen to them. Here on 7 cups, we do not have much power to help them fully but by just listening, you are helping in a big way.
