Triple M’s No Talk Day back for a 6th year, with Lifeline’s support too

On Monday 1 July, in support of men’s mental health, all microphones across the Triple M network around Australia will be switched off for No Talk Day. The 6th iteration of No Talk Day creates space for listeners to check-in with themselves and their mates with Triple M this year partnering with Lifeline to build awareness and encourage fundraising for this vital national service.

On No Talk Day Triple M pauses all shows, announcers and ads, along with news and traffic reports, between 6am and 6pm. It is a reminder to start a conversation reaching out for help or toward someone you care about. If listeners don’t feel comfortable talking to someone close, they can always turn to Lifeline.

Shaun Gough, Triple M Melbourne Content Manager and joint founding No Talk Day advocate said:

“Triple M’s No Talk Day is an important opportunity to remind our listeners across the country it’s all right to not feel all right, to prioritise their own mental health and to start a conversation with someone they care about. We stop talking to encourage our audience to start talking.

We know that of all the people in Australia who take their own lives, three in four are men*. But we also know that having a conversation matters and could possibly save a life.

With Lifeline on board for No Talk Day this year, we hope to foster more conversations and encourage our listeners to reach out, either for themselves or someone they love.”

Dr Ally Nicolopoulos, Wellbeing Lead at Lifeline, says the service is available 24 hours a day:

“At Lifeline, we understand that every Australian who listens to Triple M will have their own mental health journey and will have their own preferences on how to reach out for support. It’s okay if you don’t quite know what to say, or how to say it. The first step is just knowing that someone is there, and Lifeline is always here.

At any time through the day or night you can call us on 13 11 14, chat with us online at or send us a text on 0477 13 11 14. If you’re not ready to talk just yet, you can visit our Support Toolkit at for a range of practical strategies and support options available to you in your own time.”  

Triple M’s No Talk Day will feature on all 49 network stations Monday July 1, and also via the LiSTNR app.
