Join 7 Cups
We know that life gets hard, and sometimes you can feel that you're not being heard by those around you. That is why the Office of Counseling and Health Services has brought 7 Cups to Drexel. 7 Cups is an online service that connects its users with caring listeners who help provide emotional support for non-crisis issues, along with other functions such as guides on maintaining mental wellness. We know that now is an especially difficult time for everyone in the Drexel community in the midst of this global pandemic. That is why it's so important for you to have access to remote support services like 7 Cups.
Known as the world's largest emotional support system, 7 Cups features trained Drexel listeners — part of a network that numbers over 300,000 — ready to help you. At Drexel, we encourage students to utilize its free 24/7 peer-to-peer anonymous online chat function for support. To sign up for 7 Cups, visit Drexel's 7 Cups page and submit the Drexel-specific password "dragons" to enter the website.
Listen. Connect. Care.
Do you care for the emotions of others around you? Do you want to help people who need someone like you to lend a friendly ear? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you should become a 7 Cups Listener! You understand that Drexel can feel overwhelmingly fast-paced as projects build-up and co-op preparation can be demanding. So, volunteer to be a listener and help other Drexel students cope with the anxiety that can come along with the rigors of college.
As a listener, you will receive training through 7 Cups' Active Listening training program and additional preparation through Drexel's Counseling Center before starting. This means you'll be more than prepared to support other Drexel students with their non-crisis issues in the anonymous one-on-one chat scenarios.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in doing, then consider volunteering to be a 7 Cups Listener. You can sign up by emailing Scott Sokoloski, PhD, associate director of Counseling for Technology and Communication for the Counseling Center, at email@example.com.
