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 Janice, a 59-year-old woman who suffered a deep depression after losing her younger brother five years ago. Janice buried her feelings of despair and loss by caring for her parents in their time of grief, only to have her own feelings and emotions overwhelm her at a later time. With care, support, and physicians help, she is working to overcome and deal with depression and periods of OCD.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken in my backyard. I went to sit outside to relax after a bad morning and when I saw this web it took my breath away. How determined this little spider was to create his web made me realize that determination and perseverance can make such beautiful creations in life. I hope in my heart to make more beautiful moments in my own life as a human being!”
