Overview

What is Black Students Talk (BST)?

Black Students Talk (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 King’s College London.

Who is Black Students Talk (BST) for?

University students at King’s College London who identify as Black (African, Caribbean, Mixed with Black heritage).

Why does Black Students Talk exist (BST)?

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. We want to help make the lives of all Black students at King’s College London as happy, healthy and successful as possible.

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
  • resources designed and delivered by trained facilitators

How do I attend the Black Students Talk (BST) sessions?

BST sessions are being held virtually on Microsoft Teams every other Thursday. No need to sign up in advance. Here are the Term 1 BST Sessions:
