Patients at McLean Hospital Express Themselves with EDI

This image was created by a young woman being treated in a psychiatric inpatient unit at McLean Hospital. In her words: “My inspiration for this image was to show how I’ve been feeling as of late.

The patient has since been discharged, and her clinician reports that she is progressing well in recovery.
