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 Luis Rosado, a man from Staten Island, NY who has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years. After struggling with an alcohol problem for over two decades, Luis is celebrating six years of sobriety. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken on the beach in Staten Island. I reached my 6th year of sobriety on July 14. Before that I never thought I would reach this bridge let alone go over it. Going over this bridge brought me continued sobriety, happiness and love. Glad I crossed it.”

    Great shot! and even more important is your sobriety. I celebrated 30 years last December and 30 years off cigarettes this July 16th. My 21 year old son will celebrate 3 yeaqrs of sobriety in January. I’m sure it has made a huge difference in your quality of life.
