My name is Ida Väisänen. After training as a journalist I found myself in my first job in northern England, a whole new chapter in front of me.
However, things didn’t go as planned. Only a few months later I became increasingly ill with depression. As my health deteriorated, I began to self-harm, attempted to take my own life and was finally hospitalised for almost three months.
Then and only then did things come to a halt. I had two choices, either get better or die.
From that decision, the journey towards recovery began.
This photo was taken soon after my suicide attempt and two weeks before I was hospitalised for 80 days.
