Radio station Triple M went silent on Monday 1st of July in a stunt designed to promote awareness of men's mental health and support the charity Beyond Blue.
During the "No Talk Day" initiative there were no radio shows, no ads and no traffic reports on Triple M Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Mike Fitzpatrick, head of Triple M said:
“As a network that talks to a lot of Aussie men we feel as though it’s our responsibility to continue to encourage these men to be more aware of not only their own feelings but that of those around them. To reach out if they need someone to talk to or offer an ear to their mates.
We know it’s sometimes hard to talk about your feelings, but it might be the most important conversation you ever have.”
