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 a contributor with Bipolar Disorder, type II. She is a wife, mother, writer, photographer and advocate who enjoys capturing the moments between the moments.

About this photo: “Even when I seem together on the outside, I feel like this inside. Like there are many different versions of myself swirling within, distorted and ever-changing. Kind of cool but kind of scary at the same time.
