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 hello to first-time contributor Matt Floyd, a 40-year-old man based in West Sussex, England. Matt is recovering from depression after a series of losses and dealing with past traumas all came to a head. The recovery has been hard work, but it is going well. Counseling has helped a great deal, and he is now coming to terms with his depression. Matt spends his time looking for employment, running, and taking photos.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken on a misty winter’s morning in Cuckfield, England.

Find more from Matt at his web site.

    The mist covered trees in the background look like reflections of the clouds above.

    I had depression years back . I was under tremendous stress and what got through it all was Jesus Christ , prayer, counseling , medication for awhile and support from those with understanding of the situation . great piece of work
