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 Marcines, a 39-year-old who lives in Slough, England. Marcines has experienced both depression and substance abuse, but is now sober.

    Congratulations on your sobriety. Next month, Ggods willing, I will celebrate 27 years of continuous Sobriety
    The last four have been the hardest, yet I am still sober and I have no real desire to drink or use drugs. Continued success to you.
    Warmly, Jim
