Teen Depression

Pictures I've taken from various projects, one was of Teen Depression. I used those pictures in a visual argument for my AP English class, saying that:
The pain is an everyday thing. It's a growing problem and it's not always heard. Depression is bigger than just what it looks like on the outside, it's something that lives deep within yourself. Depression is bigger than any of us. And it's not something you can understand. It's not a surface problem. These pictures are supposed to represent the feelings of the people that they're too afraid to let known. People go through life everyday feeling worthless and alone, when in reality, they aren't. And they struggle with finding who they really are.
I created a collage, with pictures surrounding the one picture directly below this.  
It turned  out to be extremely powerful.

 I took about a hundred pictures during class that day and these were my favorites, I have a lot more that I used, of course.
 This one above was actually not an intentional photo but, it still made it in.
                                          Love this one..I'm not sure why but, I really love it :)
                                            It took a while to make this one work..

This project was actually a lot of fun (despite the topic), I really would like to join something like the Montana Meth Project (ever heard of it? Look it up!)

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, you're not alone. Seek help in someone you trust.
You're not worthless. You're not alone. Remember, all of the people who love you.
If you or someone you know is suffering from depression that results in suicidal thoughts please call the National Suicide Hotline immediately: 

Just a message to everyone: you're beautiful! And you will NEVER be alone! :) Please know that!

Love you all
