Sometimes the girl who’s always been there for everyone else needs someone to be there for her. These depressed-looking desserts might mean that depressed-feeling people get the help they need. These "sad" but delicious desserts were all created as part of an effort to raise money and awareness about depression and mental health disorders. The organization is called The Depressed Cake Shop, and the folks behind it want to make mental health disorders the topic of conversation, one decadent dessert at a time. Mental health challenges are quite common, but the stigma surrounding them and our failure as a society to address them in the same manner we address physical diseases makes it hard for many people to get help.


I spoke with Valerie Van Galder, one of the people who helps keep the organization going, to learn more. Now, the Depressed Cake Shop community assists people in organizing pop-up shops all over the world. The people who participate in the Depressed Cake Shop events often have experience with mental health disorders, either personally or through relationships with family members or friends they care about. So far, The Depressed Cake has hosted 30 pop-up shops and has helped raise over $70,000 for mental health organizations, and they're still going strong.
The images and messages posted on these sites are a raw look into the thoughts and struggles of many thousands of depressed individuals.


Knowing how much it hurts to be the monster, and to be alone with that feeling, he couldn't bring himself to tell her his name and make her feel as alone as he feels. Like everything that I've posted on here, like staying away from people and putting up walls, he basically told me those things (about me) and really tried to help me. My best guy friend is the only one who can help me, hes been through everything and always cares about me.
