Please welcome first-time contributor Hannah, a 20-year-old from Vermont. After struggling with depression for several years, Hannah attempted to end her life at the age of seventeen. She is now using her story to encourage others to speak up about mental health.
About this photo: “I’ve photographed anything and everything over the years, but I’ve particularly loved taking photos of birds. Looking back, I don’t think it’s coincidental. I’ve always felt trapped in my mind, so it’s no wonder I’ve always been drawn to a creature who embodies freedom.“
