Offering Support

Photo taken by Yessenia, a teenager who has watched friends struggle with depression and anxiety. Photography is one of her passions.

About this photo: This photograph is my own self-portrait. In this photo I wanted to show happiness and grace. I’ve watched friends live through depression and anxiety. They’re my inspiration to live my life to the fullest. They’ve worked through their problems by finding their passions and motivation to get better. To the best of my ability, I have been there for them by offering support and guidance.

    Thank you for the opportunity to see your photographs and read your stories. It would seem that photography would be very healing. It is such a personal pleasure and so emotionally rewarding. I have a friend who suffers from mental illness who might really benefit from your blog. I wish each of you the best.
