We caught up with Dr Moore to see why she’s involved with #LUYB2019
Why have you been locked up?
It’s an opportunity to get involved with a community initiative and raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing and the importance of suicide prevention.
How are you going to get enough support to post bail?
My team and I are going to undertake a range of fundraising activities and utilise social media to raise awareness of this campaign. Plus my husband will hopefully bail me out.
Have you set a bail goal? Any unique fundraising strategies?
Yes, our target is $700 but we are aiming for higher than this amount. We are still planning our fundraising activities, but will include morning teas, a crazy shirt day, possibly a session with a Personal Trainer to encourage movement and the links to mental health and wellbeing.
How important to you, and/or your organisation is mental health, and why?
Mental Health and Wellbeing are core to our business. We are focused on promoting the mental health and wellbeing of our community and individuals.
