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 contributor Danielle, a woman who suffers from depression, agoraphobia, as well as anxiety and panic disorder.

About this photo: “It’s hard for me to get out because of my depression and agoraphobia, especially in the winter. There are, however, certain things that draw me outside, like a perfect sunset. This was one such evening. I stood in my driveway, still in pajamas from the night before, looking out above my garage and neighboring homes at the sky and clouds, melting from pink to orange to purple. It was breathtaking. It is easy to think small when you are stuck in your home, but moments like this make it impossible not to see something bigger.

    This photo you captured is unlike any sunset I’ve seen. Hope you continue to venture out to see something bigger.
