Overview

What is Black Students Talk (BST)? 

BST is a peer support group that provides safe, supportive and therapeutic spaces for black* students to meet, share, learn, and manage our mental health & wellbeing at university.

 

BST online sessions are held weekly via Zoom. Each weekly session from 3PM-5PM and lasts 2 hours. 

 

 

Why does BST exist?

As university students we experience complex academic, psychological, social, emotional and financial pressures. Black* students face specific pressures that often affect our mental health and therefore, our university experience and outcome.

 

BST x KCL was set up by Nkasi Stoll (Postgraduate student at King's College London, IoPPN) and Yannick Yalipende (Postgraduate student at University of Bristol). 

 

Nkasi and Yannick worked with the IoPPN Diversity and Inclusion team to set up this group due to their own experiences with depression and anxiety whilst studying at university.  

 

 

What do Black Students Talk (BST) sessions offer?

  • one-to-one/group discussions using culturally relevant/specific psychoeducation
  • help accessing appropriate mental health services within the university and wider community
  • a ‘home away from home’ to connect with other black* students
  • visiting speakers from black mental health organisations
  • BPT resources designed and delivered by trained facilitators

Who is Black Students Talk (BST) for?

University students at King’s College London who identify as “black*” (African, Caribbean, Mixed heritage).
