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.

Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Ash, a 33-year-old man recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The doctors are still determining whether the diagnosis will be bipolar type I or II. The diagnosis came as a surprise to him because he never thought much about his mood shifts or activities until very recently. This is also the first time that he has had access to healthcare in over a decade, so that might have contributed to him not being diagnosed until recently.

About this photo: “This is a photograph that I took while being hospitalized for 8 days.
