Charity and Mental Health Work
Lobella Loves is all about breaking the taboo attached to mental health issues, particularly those suffered by mothers. We are all about fighting the stigma and helping to provide support to those in need. Together, we can make mental well-being part of the national conversation. Together we can make a difference.
Lobella Loves is proud to donate money from every single sale to Cocoon Family Support, a charity supporting families suffering from perinatal mental health issues.
Our #DepressionWearsLippy campaign started after an Instagram troll told Jo she couldn’t possibly have a mental health condition because she looked too groomed.
This spurred Jo on to challenge what the ‘face’ of someone with a mental health condition looks like, Jo says “mental health problems don’t discriminate and neither should we; you can be rich, poor, young or old, have lippy on and wear nice clothes and still be suffering. What we see on the outside is not always a true reflection of what is happening inside our heads.”
The campaign went viral with hundreds of women across the globe sharing their lipstick selfies using the hashtag #DepressionWearsLippy as a sign of solidarity with those who have suffered.
