She looks like the actress Amy Smart! Nice shadows.

I like this image a lot. The only problem I see in it is her face. The expression just doesn't do it for me. Also I agree with the post below about it being too clean.

I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' mycelium. There are some very strong elements here: the location is interesting, the harsh shadows, but it's too "clean" or "bright". I have suffered on and off with depression most of my life, and this image doesn't communicate the hopelessness I feel when I'm in that place. I think your project is a very interesting challenge because the problem with depression is the suffocating numbness, which you must communicate in a visually engaging way. I'm looking forward to watching your project evolve.

Doesn't say "depression" to me, but she's an attractive model with strong features that look like they'd lend themselves well to dark imagery. Great location, too.

ETA: just noticed the cutting. Even so, I stand by my original comment, and as it is, the "cutting" part seems out of place. Too posed, and the model is too aware of the camera. Cutting is not something typically done publicly or for the benefit of viewers. I think you'd need something much more claustrophobic and voyeuristic in composition and mood for this particular theme.
