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.

About this photo: I’ve been living with Bipolar 1 for over 20 years. As a mother now, I am dedicated to staying stable to the best of my efforts. This bunny was a big part of my most recent manic psychotic episode in fall of 2007, that was triggered by being off my medications to breast feed my baby. It’s my favorite of my child’s stuffed animals and serves as a reminder to have a sense of humor about my mental illness.
