Thousands of people use 7 Cups, winner of the 2016 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.

Remain 100% anonymous. No one will ever know who you are—not even your listeners or therapists.


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

They care.

We have over 160,000 trained listeners and licensed therapists to choose from. Listeners provide support across 189 countries and in 140 languages. 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.


The app is free to download, and all listeners are 100% free. After you download the app, you can start a conversation in less than 60 seconds.

Great idea but just doesn’t work

I was excited to see an app that helped offer a free version of help for people who need someone to talk too. However after NUMEROUS attempts at talking to listeners all of them either don’t respond from the beginning or as soon as I bring up what I want to talk about, they stop responding at all and I’m at square one again. I tried both picking my own listener and letting the apps robot pick one for me. This kind of treatment really made it feel like the listeners don’t even care about what I need to talk about. Which for anyone who is probably a more sensitive person than me with their issues might take a bad way of “great even people who are suppose to listen to me don’t even want too, I’m worthless to even people who don’t know me”

Again great idea but there needs to be a way to actually get responsive listeners this app could really be something.

Other than the issues with the listeners I do appreciate the guided steps to fill your cup that have a lot of small and simple activities to help you along your way. Loved those!



Great concept, but could absolutely be done better. You can vent, yes, but more often then not it can take forever to find a listener. And with that, when you do have a listener, all of my experience with them have been extremely poor. They clearly had no idea what they were doing (despite there being a “mini course” you must take and pass to become a listener) and have even left the conversation completely, or had me leaving feeling worse. To make all of this even worse, being a listener is a complete gamble. I decided to try being a listener out to maybe help people that had a bad experience, but even being one of this was difficult! Once my account was fully set up, I right away had requests from charters which I accepted. All of those times, they were just trolls that made explicit sexual comments and remarks which made me feel sick to my stomach. I had high hopes in potentially helping people through this app, but all I got was just a mess of ridiculously easy “training,” sexual harassment, and disappointment. You’re better off just seeing a counselor or finding a friend to talk to.

Saleem's Honesty

An Incredible Site With A Pretty Decent App

It’s hard to talk about 7 Cups without sounding like some paid advertisement, but honestly, this site (and with the conscience of the app making it accessible) has truly changed my life in a positive manner.

I highly recommend anyone who deeply feels that what 7 Cups is reaching out to do sounds like it’ll be something that interests them to definitely check out the site and download the app. Since I have, I’ve truly felt a sense of positive progression and fulfillment in my life which has been seriously lacking for quite a long time.

My only downside for the app would be in the technical department where sometimes navigating to find a specific conversation that I had with someone isn’t as smooth sailing as it should be. The app doesn’t do the greatest job at directing you to the particular reply or upvote that your post got in the Notifications section.

If it does, then perhaps I thought it’d be shown to me how to get there with a simple click of a button like another other Notifications section on a social interaction/communication-based app.

However, the intentions are great and the grand scope results and life-wise reward is beyond satisfying. I cannot emphasize enough that anyone looking to find some form of therapy or just someone to talk to or perhaps listen to may at least want to give 7 Cups a shot.
