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 Lisa, a licensed mental health counselor who believes that we all need a creative outlet to help clear our heads from time to time. For her, it’s photography, and diving. Though she is very proud of being a licensed counselor in 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 love living near the ocean and going to it makes me feel happy.  It helps me find my peace when I need to de stress and can’t scuba dive.  Sitting at the beach, watching the visitors, both human and animal always makes for a wonderful renewal.   No matter how many times I go to a spot, there will always be something changed there.  It reminds me that nothing remains the same and that change is good.”

    great photo. I so wish I lived near a beach. I feel the same way – it helps me to get back into balance, to find peace and to de-stress.
