#RiseUp with Spirit For Liptember

7 September 2018 | Bendigo Spirit news

What is Liptember? 

Liptember is a campaign that is a platform for raising awareness within the Australian community about women’s health. While also raising funds to go towards women’s support programs and mental health research geared towards women – all throughout the month of September.

Why women’s mental health? 

Liptember endeavors to change the way we view mental health. It was discovered after 2010 that the majority of mental health research examines men’t mental health, with findings being applied to both genders. That resulted in prevention programs and strategies unable to fully help the mental health needs of women.


  1. Purchase an official Liptember lipstick from your local Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist or My Beauty Spot store
  2. Register online at liptember.com.au/users/sign_up
  3. Rock your lippy throughout September
