I believe that being aware of who a person is, will help to make the life better. I help children, adolesences, adults and parents for understanding themselves

7 Cups is not equipped to support crisis situations. We are so thankful you’ve found 7 Cups and the free volunteer Listener program. Our goal is to help support people by offering an open ear and heart for non-emergency situations. In contrast, crisis counselors receive 200+ hours of training and continuing education specific to crisis situations. There are several existing crisis organizations who offer this level of training and support, which is why we choose to stay focused on non-crisis topics and training. If you are in crisis please reach out to a crisis line for appropriate support. Learn more here:

No, 7 Cups is unfortunately not a crisis resource. Whilst we are here to support those in emotional distress, we cannot take cases from people who disclose being in a crisis - the most common occurrence of this being members who disclose being suicidal. It’s important to remember though, that what one person sees as a crisis may be different to another... Therefore it is down to the judgment of your listener to determine the best place for you to receive support. Sometimes it will be possible for you to continue talking on here, but other times you may be referred to organisations such as or The Samaritans - who may be better equipped to help you. If you are referred, it doesn’t mean that we don’t care - it is simply because we want the best for you.
