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.

Photo taken by a depressed wife and mother. When I feel like I can’t pick myself up off the floor of depression, I look at this photo. I may be a few steps behind, but maybe I’ll catch up some day. In the meantime, I’ll watch with awe, amazed that this is my family and they somehow find a way to love me when I can’t even love myself.

    I know the feeling. Love from others when we let it in…is such a special gift.

    It’s a simple photo of a man and a child together but behind this photo is a wonderful story of how love and family can affect someone greatly in a very good way. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the photo and the story behind it. Every picture tells a story, but sometimes, there’s more to the story than can be seen in the photo. Merci!

    I can relate. Another way to look at it is that the caboose has perspective and views that can’t be had at the front of the train. Prayers for continued wellness. ~ Kate
