Comedian Jason Byrne has said that his mental health has been left “battered and broken” from the pandemic as he launches a new live stream show.

The 49-year-old has created the Mind Your Loaf show, a virtual online event on Saturday 3rd July, with support from Gallagher’s Bakehouse.

Jason said that he wants the event to be an “affordable approach to mental health” and along with comedian Sinead Quinlan, the pair will host a number of keynote speakers and guests to discuss mental wellbeing.

Explaining why he felt compelled to create Mind Your Loaf, Jason said: “We’re all coming out of lockdown, covid numbers are dropping, it's great news. Or is it?

“We are all expected to get back to the way we were, but that will take time and we’ll need help doing it. Our mental health has been battered and broken by this awful pandemic, job losses, loved ones passed away, dogs over walked.

“It's enough to break anyone, and when you’re broken, you need fixing. Most of us, including myself do not have the income to cover ongoing help - our livelihoods are impacted, and therapy comes at a cost that most of us just can't afford,” he continued.

“So - where do we go? The Mind Your Loaf show is designed to help with an affordable approach to mental health, and having fun while doing it!”

“We are all like radio stations, sometimes we just need someone to tune us in. This is where I believe that Mind Your Loaf can help us all.

“Sinead and I can guarantee movement, breathing and barrels of laughter as we tackle mental health and try to make it a healthy journey for all.”

Tickets are priced at €25, which includes a donation to Alone and are available from www.mindyourloaf.com.

The event will remain online for 7 days to attendees.
