Triple M Launches No Talk Day 2024, Now In Partnership With Lifeline, In Support Of Men’s Mental Health

Triple M’s No Talk Day returns for 2024 this Monday 1 July, in partnership with Lifelife. The theme for this year is “Check-in with Yourself, check on a Mate.”

Need help with your mental health? Make use of the Lifelife Toolkit HERE!

Now in its sixth year, No Talk Day will see Triple M pause all shows, announcers and ads, along with all news and traffic reports, between 6am and 6pm, as a reminder to make mental health a priority and encourage listeners to start a conversation for themselves or with someone they care about.

Every day, nine Australians take their own life. On average, seven of those are men*.

In support of men’s mental health, on Monday 1 July microphones across Triple M’s 49 radio stations around Australia will stay switched off. Triple M launches No Talk Day 2024 to create space for listeners to check-in with themselves and their mates. In a further strengthening of No Talk Day, this year Triple M has partnered with Lifeline to build awareness and encourage fundraising for this vital national service.

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, understands it takes courage to talk about mental health.

“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,” he said.

“We 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, reminds listeners that they can access support through Lifeline 24 hours a day in a way that feels most comfortable for them.  

“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,” she said.

“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 can be heard on Triple M’s 49 FM stations around the country on Monday 1 July and via the LiSTNR app.

Anytime is the best time to make mental health a priority. To access support from Lifeline, call 13 11 14 or go to
