Team Talk is aimed at improving the mental health of men in Barnsley. It is a low-level mental health initiative where men can meet, open up, take some time out and talk about issues in a relaxed, supportive environment. It offers a combined approach to suicide prevention drawing together social activities and peer support in a football setting. Team Talk will enable local men to:

  • Build new relationships with others facing similar challenges 
  • Share experiences, tips and coping mechanisms
  • Access and offer peer support
  • Realise they are not alone and support is available   
  • Take a break from their day to day lives

Our sessions are delivered at Oakwell on a Wednesday evening 6pm -7:30pm,  Thursday's at Honeywell Sports Campus at 6pm - 7.30pm, and Thursday at New Lodge Community Centre from 6pm - 7.30pm, where participants have the opportunity to socialise and take part in activities such as Pool, Darts, Table Tennis and exercise.
