It’s #timetotalk.

To mark World Mental Health Day tomorrow, iRadio will be broadcast live from Shop Street tomorrow evening.

The Hub’ with Dave Duke will go out live from 56 Central, 5 Shop Street, and there’s a stellar line-up scheduled.

Special guest speakers will share their own personal stories and providing helpful tips on how to deal with mental health issues.

Galway hurler, David Burke will be there, along with Choice Music Prize winners, Rusangano Family, Donal Vaughan Joe Caslin and Donegal Rose, Amy Callaghan, who opened up about her anxiety on stage at the Rose of Tralee.

And, it gets better. Irish music acts Fallen Lights and  Stephanie Rainey will be performing live on the show.

Fallen Lights recently embarked on an epic tour across all 32 counties to raise awareness of the importance of mental health.

World Mental Health Day is observed around the world on 10th October every year and the theme for 2017 is “Mental health in the workplace”.

The overall aim is to organise collectively in support of better mental health.

The time around World Mental Health Day gives us all an opportunity to bring awareness to and highlight mental health and wellbeing issues where we work, rest and play.


This year, Pieta House have teamed up with Lyons Tea, with a simple message: it’s time to talk.

#Timetotalk encourages families to put the kettle on this World Mental Health Day, brew some tea, grab some Mikados or Kimberlys and have a serious chat about mental health.

Without talking to each other, it’s almost impossible to know how someone close to you is feeling, which is why talking, and this campaign to promote it, are vital.
