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 Red, from Just a thought, in Texas. Red has been Diagnosed with PTSD, Clinical Depression, anxiety and panic disorders, and also has sons with mental health issues. She fights to battle from both sides of the coin, as a consumer and as a advocate for her sons.
About this photo: I took this photo to use online, it wasn’t until later that I realized there was a tear there as well. Taking photos of myself is a trigger for me and I guess even this innocent photo proves I still have work to do.
