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 SJ, a 28-year-old woman who has been diagnosed with OCD, PTSD and psychosis. Photography has given her a focus, and an outlet to express the feelings that she finds difficult to process and explain.

About this photo: “My image is called “One Step At A Time.” The once grand but daunting staircase of an abandoned psychiatric hospital.

Find more from SJ at her Instagram.
