We're excited to be launching Talk Club at KCL.Talk Club is a male mental fitness movement that started at the University of Bristol.
This session will be facilitated by Dominic from King's Counselling and Tommy from KCLSU Sport but in future, they will be led by students.
Sessions will be small with a maximum of 8 students attending. You will be invited to share but you will never be forced to. We do ask that you put cameras on. Find out more about Talk Club below and check out their website here.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 49. In the UK, approximately three-quarters of all suicides are male. TALK CLUB was created after one of our Founders, Ben Akers, lost his childhood best friend, Steve Yates, to suicide in 2014. Struggling to process his grief, Ben set out to make ‘Steve’, a documentary about male mental health. TALK CLUB is a legacy of that project.
The power of talking and listening
TALK CLUB is a behaviour-changing movement aimed at getting men to talk more openly about their thoughts, feelings, worries and day-to-day gripes (and all the positive stuff too!). We want to create as many safe and confidential spaces across the UK where men can meet regularly to talk, and listen to each other. We are here to encourage and support men across the globe, to set up their own TALK CLUB.
A community that is always here
The groups are relaxed, informal and non-judgemental - a place where men can simply go in and get off their chest what's been happening in their week. We all experience life's highs and lows and, we believe, TALK CLUB can be there for both. We have set up a thriving online Private, Men-only Facebook group. It's a fantastic welcoming community of men simply getting stuff off their chest daily.
