How are you?
Out of 10?
Talk & Listen. Talk & Exercise. Talking Therapy.
Welcome to a mental fitness community for men,
meeting in person and online.
Talk Club is a talking and listening club for men,
offering talking groups, sports groups and therapy to help keep you mentally fit.
Itâ€™s a simple medicine that starts with asking – How are you? Out of 10?
By checking in regularly with yourself and other men,
Talk Club creates a community that we are all missing in today’s world.
"Amazing. Being listened to and listening to others is so empowering, uplifting and provides me a sense of value. No matter what number I enter at it always goes up during the sessions." TC Member

We all know someone affected by suicide which sadly seems to be at an all-time high. I’ve lost many people far too early and itâ€™s important to talk. I’m really pleased to be able to help in anyway with this song and will be partnering with Talk Club on my track â€˜Too Good For Giving Upâ€™ LG x.
So, what happens in a Talk Club talking group?
There are no therapists, no couches and no judgement –
just regular men sitting in a private and safe space,
listening and talking. If it’s a Talk & Run club or Talk & Golf
sharing will happen at different points throughout the activity.
We start with how each man feels out of 10 and share why.
We then talk about what we are grateful for and what we are going
to do for our mental fitness this week.
Itâ€™s a beautifully simple medicine that we rarely give ourselves,
the ability to share how we really feel.
"I discovered Talk Club at a time when my mental health was spiralling downwards and I saw no way out. Talk Club gave me a safe space where I could share how I was feeling without being judged. It gave me a community of men who could listen and try to help each other, which sadly I didnâ€™t have elsewhere. I will always be grateful to Talk Club, it saved my life." TC Member
Talk Club Ten Coffee – A coffee made to get you talking
We’ve partnered with Wogan to create a coffee made to get people talking. Offices and families across the UK are changing their coffee to start a conversation using How are you? Out of 10? and give back to their community with Â£2.50 of every kilo sold going to Talk Club.

Honorary Patron – Georgie Ward / Cherry Valentine
Talk Club is proud to name Georgie Ward/Cherry Valentine as an Honorary Patron. Georgie, who took his own life in September 2022, was a qualified mental health nurse, dedicating his time to helping people with mental health problems. He had an amazing career in drag as Cherry Valentine and was on Ru Paul’s drag race season 2, he loved creating new looks for Halloween and Christmas, inspiring people to be as they wanted to be.
“We chose Talk Club (as a beneficiary) specifically as Georgie unknown to us was battling with his own mental health, he always had a smile on his face and a laugh that was unforgettable. We believe that for men today to be open about their feelings and talk is really hard, which it really shouldn’t be. We can relate to Talk Club because of Georgie and know that this kind of mental health charity is definitely what is needed. We particularly like the straightforward question “How are you? Out of 10?” which opens up that awkward, difficult conversation that all men try to avoid. Georgie loved people’s stories, especially the awkward ones. He used to say that’s when you really open up and get to know someone. He loved parties, music, and being around positive people, he was always about good energy.”
George Ward, Georgie’s father
