Pockets Full of Lavender

Pockets Full of Lavender is a blog about mental health and photography. Art has always been so connected to what we know about mental health, whether that is the feelings we try to highlight in photographs or drawings, the lyrics we write, or the jokes we tell. Each post will focus on a different aspect of mental health and highlight a picture or other art piece that connects with the topic of the post. My goal here is not to give advice, but to talk about what I’ve experienced and maybe hear about your story. Please don’t hesitate to email me at hardstylinphotography@gmail.com with any questions you might have, topics you think I should cover, or stories of your own journeys in the worlds of art and mental health. Please remember if you’re ever experiencing a crisis you are struggling to deal with on your own, you can reach the Suicide Prevention Hotline by dialing 988 and hitting that call button.
