Need to vent? 7 Cups of Tea, an online-based talk therapy app, is working to provide support for students as they work through their college careers. The app gives users the option to chat anonymously with a therapist or attend free counseling online.

Users chat anonymously with one of the site’s 70,000 “listeners,” who are trained to help those seeking support. Many of the listeners, who are all volunteers, used the app to seek support before beginning to help others themselves.

The volunteers come from all over the world. Users who do not speak English can look through the database of listeners to find someone who speaks their native language.

Founder and owner Glen Moriarty started the company for people who don’t have someone they trust in their immediate life in June of 2013. Moriarty, who practiced as a psychologist for 12 years before dedicating his time to 7 Cups of Tea, believes that students specifically need the support because of the stresses that young adults going through school face. Over 50 percent of the app’s users are students.

“The lack of staff on college campuses for talk therapy is a chronic problem,” he said.

7 Cups of Tea is available online and can be downloaded for iPhone and Android.
