Mental Health Advocates Call for Psycho Donuts to Do the Right Thing
Date:7/23/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oscar Wright, chief executive officer of United Advocates for Children and Families (UACF), and Kipp Berdiansky, co-owner of the Psycho Donuts shop, participated in an interview and debate Wednesday on KTVU's Bay Area People with host Rosy Chu.

In fact, many people do not seek help for mental illness because of the stigma and mockery they face from the public.

While on air, Wright challenged Berdiansky to meet again outside of the media spotlight to engage in further discussions about changing negative public opinions about mental illness. Berdiansky repeatedly sidestepped the offer saying he would only do so in public. Wright continues to believe that in the end, Berdiansky will find it in his heart to do the right thing rather than insisting on a public venue in which to commercialize his donu
