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 Lisa, a licensed mental health counselor. She believes that we all need a creative outlet to help clear our heads of the occasional “gunk.” For her, it’s photography, and diving. She has a personal blog that contains inspirational and travel photos, as well as a professional blog. Though she is very proud of being licensed counselors for both Alabama and Florida, as well as a Registered Play Therapist and Nationally Certified Counselor, she is most proud of the fact that at the age of 47 she learned to scuba dive and has been an avid diver ever since.

About this photo: “I took this photo a few months ago on a diving trip. I have found that being underwater is one of my best ways of just “losing” myself, forgetting the day to day stresses, and just being one with the world underwater. The diver in this photo, my dive buddy, has both a camera and a spear in his hands. The photo was taken while diving a wreck in Panama City Beach Florida.”
