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 in Florida. Danielle is a woman in her thirties who suffers from bipolar II disorder.

About this photo: “When I am feeling especially depressed or anxious or stressed, I try to force myself to go in nature, even if it is just taking a few steps outside my door. It reminds me that I am so small, and that there is much beauty out there to be experienced in this world, even if I can’t always see it.

    What an admirable reflection! People despite being amidst a condition who still have the courage to battle it with positive attitude have always inspired me. Thanks for sharing

    That leaf looks like Cocoloba uvifera, otherwise known as Sea Grape.

    So much captured in a single shot. In essence; the cycle of life. Brilliant concept.
