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 with severe depression and anxiety attacks.

About this photo: “This is a shot I took of my mother and my daughter at the beach together. Grandmother and granddaughter, hand in hand. So much of the time I feel like a terrible mother and daughter because of my illness. I set too high of standards and can never come close to reaching them. But at times like these, the issues seem to be washed away, and I can appreciate the beauty of things, especially nature, and my loving family. I am very lucky to be mother to a special little girl, and to have a mother.

Happy day to my mother, and all mothers and like-mothers.”
