Hi! This is @echosight, a collaborative photo project run by @dannyghitis & @dzalcman taking over @newyorkerphoto for the week. We’ve been collaborating with @1in20, a project that aims to discuss and destigmatize mental health, to produce a series of personal stories dealing with depression, suicide, and mental illness. #1in20 #mentalhealthawareness

The image above combines photographs from Melissa Brown in Plymouth, IN and Sharron Diedrichs from Brooklyn, NY. Melissa said, “September 20th 2013 was the worst day of my life. Around 9:15 that morning, I got a phone call saying that my sister Jill had shot herself….I went into severe depression. She was my best friend…I still grieve the loss of my sister every day. It hasn’t gotten any easier. People need to learn the warning signs. They were all there, I just didn’t see them. If we can save one life, so a family doesn’t have to go through what we had to go through then it’s all worth it.” Sharron said, “One little-acknowledged aspect of depression is that most other people simply can’t imagine how it feels to live with unrelenting despair and hopelessness. This reality means that it is easier for me to put on a social ‘mask’—to smile and act as if everything is fine when I have to function in public. It is only in private, when I’m alone, that I finally take off the mask and break down. This behavior is damaging and isolating, and only worsens sufferers’ sense that they are irreversibly different and broken, and hopelessly alone.”

Photo 20 Oct 20/10/2014. I walk past these flowers each week after my therapy session. After being ensconced in the womb of PTSD for the past hour I guess they are planted to make you feel better. Shame it always seems to start raining as I leave the hospital building. #arttherapy #art #1in20 #ptsd #mentalhealth #mentalillness #therapy #abstract #impressionism #photoreportage #photojournalism #documentary #instagood #instamood #uk #england #echosightsingles #echosight @1in20

Ben arrives from Iraq
Ben: THIS IS YOUR BLOOD! THIS IS YOUR LIFE! This 
isn’t anything you make art with, THAT’S SICK! This 
is your friends, your family, your children, your 
future! WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO YOURSELF?!?! He won’t stop screaming, won’t let go of my arm, shoves it in my face… He’s so angry, and scared. I’ve never seen him scared before.
