The Depressed Cake Shop is the Cakehead Loves chosen charity project for 2013 and aims to raise awareness of mental health issues, and use cake as a universal platform on which this can be discussed. Due to the overwhelming support for the concept this is a dedicated page for all those wanting to take part in, or simply find out more about, the series of events which will be held around the UK and indeed the world.

One in four people will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lives – The Depressed Cake Shop will provide a unique (& delicious cake) platform on which to raise awareness of and discuss mental health issues, whilst at the same time raising valuable funds for various mental health charities. It will provide a valuable platform for discussion about mental illness and to engage with people the myriad of complex issues that stem from this disease. It’s an awareness campaign, as opposed to a fundraising one, so each of the cake shops will be donating money to the mental health charity of their choice.
