The Depressed Cake Shop is a one-day, pop-up bakery designed to raise awareness of mental illness through the sale of custom-made cakes, cookies, and other treats, all donated by local bakers. These special baked goods are often gray on the outside and colored on the inside, reminding people of the prevalence of mental health struggles: one in four of us will suffer from, or be touched by, a mental health issue in our lives. Counseling Connections is excited to host a Depressed Cake Shop Pop Up. We are grateful to PJ's Coffee for providing a great location to hold this fun event! All proceeds will benefit the mental health services of Counseling Connections. During 2018, we served a total of 910 clients with 6,657 service hours. We provided $237,818 in discounted or free services.
