Sunday, May 19, 2019, 8:00 PM


Depressed Cake shop Portland is popping back up! Get a sweet t-shirt too. Check out what it looks like here or see above! The Depressed Cake Shop is a different kind of cake shop. It’s a one day pop-up bakery to raise awareness of mental illness through the sale of special cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other treats donated by local bakers. The baked goods are gray on the outside and sometimes colored on the inside to symbolize hope – all to encourage conversation about mental health issues.  The Depressed Cake Shop offers a unique platform to talk about mental illness. With 1 in 5 people affected by some type of mental health issue, we all know someone who is struggling. Whether it’s a family member, friend, or co-worker, we’re all touched by it. Baby Blues Connection focuses on providing free support for mothers and families coping with perinatal mood disorders- depression, anxiety, stress related to welcoming a child. “We’re always working to reduce stigma and create a dialogue where parents can express - in a supportive and non-judgmental environment- exactly how they are feeling without shame or blame,” said Angie Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of Baby Blues Connection. “We’ve partnered with Depressed Cake Shop, a worldwide grassroots movement to raise awareness about our common struggles. No one should suffer alone, be it from Postpartum Depression or any other mental health condition.”The Depressed Cake Shop started in the UK in 2013 and has since become a worldwide grassroots collective with Depressed Cake Shops popping up all over the world.
