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 who has experienced episodes of extreme depression with agoraphobia. She is a wife and mother to a little human and a furbaby.

About this photo: “This is an outtake from a shoot I did recently. It makes me smile, and reminds me how important it is to have people in our lives who can make us laugh through the tough times, whether that is family, friends, or even pets. Laughter releases tension and is a great way to distract from what is going on inside, especially when thoughts get dark and twisty.”
