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 woman who suffers from bipolar II.

About this photo: This elaborate castle was created by several people working together on Long Beach Island. It represents fun and youthful exuberance, as well as perhaps the impermanence of it all.

    A fun and beautiful post, giving us a chance to appreciate the simple joys in life like building sand castles. Something we all used to do when we were kids with full of dreams.
