Not just lip service for mental health campaign

FRASER Coast women have been encouraged to slick on their brightest lipstick this month, all in the name of better mental health.

The initiative encourages women to openly communicate as part of Liptember, a fundraising and awareness campaign run throughout September.

It calls for more research and programs for women's mental health issues.

Chemist Warehouse in Hervey Bay will sell official Liptember lipsticks this month, with part of the proceeds to go to Lifeline and the Centre for Women's Mental Health.
