Talk Club comes to KCL

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 a fellow male King's student and is open to all male-identifying 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. 

Find out more about Talk Club below and check out their website here. 


Why Talk?

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!).  The sessions are informal and non-judgemental, you can participate as much or as little as you'd like.

If your student group is interested in collaborating with KCL Talk Club or you have any questions beforehand, you can reach out to
