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.

• Connect anytime, anywhere with listeners who care
• Speak your mind without any fear of being judged
• All listeners trained in active listening
• Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

We start you on a “growth path” that will encourage and support you as you take daily steps to become stronger.


Founded by a licensed psychologist, 7 Cups has been featured in LifeHacker (“Technology can help you find someone to chat with about your problems to, or even connect you with a professional that can offer lasting, long-term help”), Medical Daily (“Talking therapy for people on-the-go”), and TechCrunch (“One of the top 8 startups from Y Combinator’s Summer ’13 Demo Day”).


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.

Bridging the Compassion Gap with Ease & Clarity


Rarely do i find an app so straight-forward in its mission. It takes less than a minute to sign up and connect with a verified “Listener,”—someone who’s job it is to listen without judgement, and support you in whatever you’re going through.

You can also use tools within the app for easing anxiety, lifting depression and much, much more.

Really well-done and precisely meeting a huge need to connect in Compassion in this cockamamie world we live in. Love it.



I am Thankful for this app it’s truely beneficial, Covers so many different issues which is very helpful to someone such as myself that has a dual diagnosis because I can focus on the issue I am struggling with at the moment.. Example sometimes my anxiety is way up and my mental illness or addiction is not affecting my daily task My anxiety can come from elsewhere so it is really good to be able to go into that room and perhaps get helpful solutions that I may have not thought of on my own..

Great tool, convenient


Talk to a trained “listener” or a Licensed Therapist all in one place. Great app that connects you to someone when YOU need it. As a licensed therapist who provides therapy here and in person, I see great value in this process. In addition to one-on-one listeners and Therapy plans there are also many available group chat rooms for people who are trying to manage life with some of the same challenges as you. Great multiplayer approach to helping people THRIVE!
