A Kinder Slice, in partnership with Chef Regina Cooks, was created as a way to support communities which are burdened by the affects of mental illness. Our mission is to create healthy individuals, healthy families, healthy communities, and a healthy planet through mental health awareness and supportive services.
Mental health awareness is the ongoing effort to reduce the stigma around mental illness and mental health conditions by sharing our personal experiences. Often, because of misconceptions about mental health and mental fitness, people often suffer in silence and their conditions go untreated. Mental health awareness also a reminder that mental health is essential and that those living with mental health issues are deserving of care, understanding, compassion, and pathways to hope, healing, recovery, and fulfillment.
With appropriate treatment, people can manage their illness, overcome challenges, and lead productive lives. Maintaining a positive mental health and treating any mental health conditions is crucial to stabilizing constructive behaviors, emotions, and thoughts. Focusing on mental health care can increase productivity, enhance our self-image, and improve relationships.
We currently partner with licensed clinicians to offer free or sliding-scale mental health services and culinary therapy programs. Our 2024 goals is to create a permanent retail location to house our sweet desserts and savory pies, a yoga movement studio, and creative space to host culinary therapy classes, as a supportive measure.
