Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital

Photo taken by contributor SJ, a 28-year-old woman who has been diagnosed with OCD, PTSD and psychosis. Photography has given her a focus, and an outlet to express the feelings that she finds difficult to process and explain.

About this photo: “My image is called “One Step At A Time.” The once grand but daunting staircase of an abandoned psychiatric hospital.

Find more from SJ at her Instagram.
