Triple M prepares for fifth annual No Talk Day


On Monday July 3 Triple M microphones across the country will stay silent for the network’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 markets across the Triple M network, from Townsville to Tassie, Perth to Parramatta and in everywhere between will be involved.

Triple M Melbourne Content Manager and founding No Talk Day advocate Shaun Gough 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.

In the lead-up to No Talk Day, Triple M will host a long-form mental health discussion called The Courageous Talk Roundtable.

Special guests Chelsea Frawley, 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, will talk frankly about their own experiences with mental health, sharing advice on how to best start the conversation with others.

Triple M’s Courageous Talk Roundtable will be available in the lead up No Talk Day.  The full-length video will appear on Triple M’s YouTube channel and feature as a podcast on the LiSTNR app.
