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 Jackie in California. She is mother to a child with mental illness. No matter how strong a family may be, mental health issues are difficult on everyone, not just the individual struggling. Family and friends can suffer terribly throughout the process as well.

About this photo: “This is a snapshot of my daughter who has blossomed despite the interruptions in her life from her sibling’s mental illness. Chronic Mental Illness can take a family down financially and emotionally because of it’s unpredictability and severity. Our family will not be defeated in life because what is the option?”
