Triple M counts down to No Talk Day


This Monday – July 3 – Triple M microphones across the country will stay silent for the station’s fifth annual No Talk Day.

There’ll be no Breakfast show banter, no announcers, no news or traffic reports and no ads.

Over 12 hours from 6am to 6pm, Triple M, with support from Beyond Blue, will create space to encourage listeners and friends to have a courageous conversation around men’s mental health and suicide.

All 45 stations across the Triple M network, from Townsville to Tassie, Perth to Parramatta – and everywhere between – will be involved.

In addition, between 6pm and 7pm this week, Triple M counts down to No Talk Day, by replacing all announcers for the hour across the country with messaging encouraging listeners to check-in on their mental health and focus on the importance of building mental fitness.

Triple M has also released the long-form mental health discussion called The Courageous Talk Roundtable.

Special guests include Chelsea Frawley, mental health advocate and daughter of AFL great Danny ‘Spud’ Frawley, who was battling depression when he died, First Nations performer Mitch Tambo, clinical psychologist and anxiety specialist Dr Jodie Lowinger, and SCA transgender employee Andrea Cole who has worked at Triple M for more than 35 years.

They talk frankly about their own experiences with mental health, sharing advice on how to best start the conversation with others.

Watch it here.

Shaun Gough, Triple M Melbourne Content Manager and founding No Talk Day advocate, understands it takes courage to talk about mental health.

“Triple M’s No Talk Day is when we ask listeners across the country to ‘check-in’ on their own mental health or someone they care about and think about having a potentially life-saving conversation if that’s what’s needed; to tell someone their story, or genuinely ask a mate how they’re travelling. These are conversations that matter, they can save lives,” he says.

Triple M’s No Talk Day can be heard on Triple M’s 45 FM stations around the country THIS Monday 3 July and via the LiSTNR app.
