Radio silence at Triple M for annual No Talk Day

On July 3, Triple M radio will be silent for 12 hours for its fifth No Talk Day, in partnership with mental health and wellbeing support organisation Beyond Blue.

From 6am to 6pm, the radio network will create space to encourage listeners and friends to have “courageous conversations” about men’s mental health and suicide.

Triple M’s Marty Sheargold, Mark Geyer, Mark ‘Roo’ Ricciuto and Chris ‘Ditts’ Dittmar, among others, will share their experiences about when they, or someone they know, was living with a mental health issue.

Shaun Gough, Triple M Melbourne content manager and founding No Talk Day advocate, said: “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.”

In the lead-up to July 3, Triple M will host a long-form mental health discussion, The Courageous Talk Roundtable.

It will feature a number of special guests including First Nations performer Mitch Tambo, and transgender Triple M employee Andrea Cole, to talk frankly about their own experiences with mental health.

Triple M’s No Talk Day will be across its 45 FM stations, and on the LiSTNR app.
