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.”

Remain 100% anonymous. No one will ever know who you are—not even your listeners or therapists.
LISTENERS WHO CARE:
Our listeners are volunteers. They aren’t getting paid; they’re here because they want to help.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
People are encouraging self harm in groups
I downloaded this app because I have a lot wrong as far as mental illness, but being someone who struggled with self harm for years and having it took me years to stop when I entered a group chat to talk and maybe feel better just to see “just cut a little” “don’t let anyone see” as if self harming is healthy definitely made me feel much worse. I understand why people do it, I did it, but it’s still not healthy and if you’re trying to help people get better you either need to monitor the group discussions for things like this or do away with them and only have listeners, but as is it takes forever to get a listener, if you get a listener, and most disappear on you in the first few messages. This app has a lot of work to be done if you really intend on helping, because if i had stayed in that group and said how I’ve felt recently, I wouldn’t only feel worse but likely have intentions to do something harmful to my self because I would have been told “do it, its okay, it’ll make you feel better” by the others in the group. The only really useful aspects is that you can pay to have a therapist (which not everyone can afford making the app near useless to them if they really need help), the small but beneficial activities to fill your cup, and the bots which only listen but are very useful when all you need is to vent because it literally does practically nothing besides listen.

Not Real Therapists
At first I was genuinely in love with this app after I had heard it was free therapy in which real therapists or volunteers would willingly and professionals help people with serious problems. But no, when I used this app, I was given 7 random users to choose from (who were teenagers) who simply chose the “listen” feature of the app. The app says that it respects your privacy, but the random users hardly agree to such. When I finally was assigned a user after waiting a week, I explained all of my problems to him in 1 short paragraph about my issues with focusing and maintaining motivation and a good mindset. He told me “clear your head and just study,” which is completely useless because I obviously can’t. And when I told him that didn’t help, “it’s just not that simple,” he replied with a sad-faced emoji. His 3 word responses showed little interest and professionalism.
The app also made me take a quiz about ADHD and the help hotlines kept popping up on my phone, that was it. No professional was linked to these quizzes to help prevent any suffering, but linked to a randomly chosen teenager.
As my final statement, no one should ever rely on this app for help because the user may respond with 🙁 and leave you on read. If anyone were in a state of such emergency in need to call the suicide hotline, this app would worsen the conditions in which the struggling user would already be sick of; being ignored and feeling helpless.
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!
