What is KCLSU Wellbeing?
Kings College London Students’ Union (KCLSU) Wellbeing works closely with students at King’s to promote positive wellbeing, supporting a range of student-led initiatives and campaigns throughout the academic year. 

Both the initiatives and campaigns led by KCLSU Wellbeing have been created to empower and encourage students to take a positive approach when looking after their physical and mental wellbeing.

All activities and events include a wide range of student initiatives, events and training across all campuses and residences, and are inspired by the ‘King’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing’.

KCLSU Wellbeing believes that good wellbeing is about discovering who we are and what makes us thrive. 

It supports students to take care of themselves and get the best of their time at King’s through the Wellbeing Hub and Peer Support.

  • The Wellbeing Hub is the online space for students to find activities, events and resources to boost their wellbeing and thrive.
  • Peer Support are student-only spaces where students can share, learn and support each other’s mental health and wellbeing. The Positive Peers offer supportive spaces for any student who wants to improve their mental health and wellbeing, whilst Black Students Talk is a supportive space for black students only.

What is Black Students Talk?
Black Students Talk (BST) is a peer support group run by KCLSU, 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.
