Have you heard about 7 Cups of Tea? It’s a great online support resource which you can use to connect with volunteers who are simply there to listen when you need to talk. These individuals (referred to as “Listeners”) are there to help you anytime you feel like you need to talk but have nobody who will listen. They are not there to judge, nor will they try to tell you what you should do; they will simply provide a sympathetic ear for you to talk. Whether you are dealing with a physical or mental illness, going through a break-up, grieving the loss of a loved one, or simply having a bad day, 7 Cups of Tea is a great way to find someone who you can anonymously talk to and vent your emotions and frustrations.
If you would like to connect with a listener, visit: https://www.7cupsoftea.com/. If you are interested in becoming a listener (its a really great experience!!!) all you have to do is sign up for an account and complete the training course online (should take you no more than an hour or two). Furthermore, if mental health is a field that you want to work in, you can apply to complete an internship with 7 Cups of Tea and receive a certificate for the 8 week (80 hours minimum) program!
It’s a great resource and I would encourage you all to get involved and check it out!
