A special meeting of the talk club for men run by Brentford FC and its Community Sports Trust will take place on Saturday. The EFL and its clubs will once again come together with charity partner, Mind, to collectively mark World Mental Health Day on Saturday, 10 October, this year, as announced earlier this week. Encouraging conversations around our own mental health and that of others has never been more important due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the ‘do one thing’ campaign run by Mind, the EFL's charity partner, aims to inspire people to make one small change or take one action to look after their mental health.

The group, with more than 20 members provides a safe hub for men to talk and support each other. There will be a meeting of the group on Saturday. Details are below.
