Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

I haven’t been diagnosed nor have I been to a doctor; but this past year has been a difficult one for me.  I’ve hit some rock bottom lows that has lead me to think about some dangerous situations.  Luckily for me I do have people I love dearly, and I can’t ever imagine hurting them in anyway. Especially when it comes to something so selfish as taking my own life. There is more to life than myself which is why I choose to live.
Note from Broken Light: We encourage people to please contact a doctor or mental health professional when you feel so low, or call a crisis helpline such as 1-800-273-TALK.

    Great use of DOF; I could read more into it than necessary, but I prefer to simply enjoy it.
