Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition, as 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. However, everyone is affected or impacted by mental illness through friends and family.
Throughout May, we work to raise awareness for mental health. Each year, we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.

Depressed Cake Shop
The Most Delicious Mental Health Awareness Event of the Year
This May, bakeries around Central Texas are joining forces with NAMI Central Texas to “change the conversation” by featuring special Depressed Cake Shop items in celebration of Mental Health Month. Depressed Cake Shops feature specially decorated baked goods that have an element of gray to signify the gray cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health issues. Bright colors inside the dessert represent the hope that always continues.
It's not too late to join a nationwide effort to increase awareness and encourage mental health conversations in Central Texas.
