Radio City Talk to host Mental Health Monday ’24 hour’ Marathon
6 years ago
Radio City is marking officially the “most depressing day of the year” by broadcasting a 24 hour live radio show focussing on mental health.
On Monday 15th January 2018, award winning journalist Mick Coyle will embark on an unprecedented challenge to tackle the stigma around mental health with a full day’s worth of radio broadcasting to shine a light on the issue.
Starting at 9am, he’ll be joined by special guests, politicians and mental health service providers to open the lid on mental health, exploring why it’s still seen as a taboo subject and what can be done to improve services across the UK.
Mental health champion Jake Mills will be with Mick throughout the 24 hour challenge which will be the biggest ever radio show of its kind and the biggest undertaking in the history of Bauer News.
Speaking ahead of the event, Mick Coyle said: “You often hear people say it’s hard to talk about mental health but we want to show how easy it can be by doing it for 24 hours straight.
“Over the last year, our Mental Health Monday feature and podcast has shown there is a real desire for people to hear more about mental illnesses delivered in an open and honest way.”
The full 24 hours will be hosted on Radio City’s talk station – Radio City Talk. It will also be broadcast on Facebook Live with updates across Radio City and Radio City 2 throughout the day.
