Thousands of people use 7 Cups, winner of the Stanford MedicineX Prize for Healthcare Systems Design, every week. Here’s what some of them have to say:

“Talking anonymously with a listener made me feel safe enough to really open up.”

“I can just message on my way home from work and it isn’t inconvenient like scheduling a therapist.”

“I got undivided attention from someone who cared for the first time in a really, really long time.”


Feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed? Having relationship problems? Sometimes you need to vent. Finding and scheduling a therapist can be time-consuming and expensive, and you can’t always open up to friends, family, or coworkers.

Our listeners are volunteers. They aren’t getting paid; they’re here because they want to help.

They care.

Each listener has a profile with reviews and a list of categories that they specialize in, ranging from panic attacks and bullying to eating disorders, surviving a breakup, and more.

When you find the listener you want, connect instantly via chat. Try a new listener each time, or pick one listener and develop a deeper ongoing relationship.

Free therapist-like sessions

I have been using this since 2015 as a listener and I could say the following:
- the easiest way to reach someone to vent to if needed, who is trained to feel like a therapist, but at the same time offering a feiendly space
- since it is global, you can talk to someone at any time you need
- cheap and effective for people who cannot afford a real therapist
- good for people who do not have much time or are too reticent for a in-person meeting with a therapist
- they have materials about how to deal with your issues
- offers group sessions
- becoming a listener doesn't require many criteria, therefore you might encounter people who are not meant for this (eg. cursing, grumpy, non-responsive, etc.) BUT I have met A LOT of great people so it's really worth the wait
- it takes some time until you find a(n) (understanding) listener

Good modality to keep in touch with your therapist when you feel the need

I believe it is the cheapest way to get a therapist and for sure the only way you can write him/her at anytime without any appointment and get daily response also!

Great app!

Everyone should try to open up and I think if you are a lonely person, this is one of the best ways.
