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 Danielle in NJ, a woman who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II and Borderline Personality Disorder, among other things. Photography is an outlet and coping tool that helps her through the challenging times.

About this photo: “Sometimes if we can endure the thorns in life, there are flowers waiting on the other side.

    May the fact that so many people ‘like’ and ‘comment’ on her beautiful photo encourage her to continue to not only endure but to blossom. 🙂
