Photographer Laura Hospes launched a powerful self-portrait collection titled “UCP-UMCG,” from a psychiatric unit. She struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts, and thereby decided to expose what it feels like to battle with suicidal thoughts inside a mental hospital.
Lauren shares her story on social media, and openly discussed her ordeal with various publications like ATTN and Bustle.
I hope these photos and quotes help others who are in the same plight.
