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, a woman in her thirties whose diagnoses include Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. Danielle is a freelance writer, photographer, photo editor, and the founder of Broken Light Collective.

About this photo: “Sometimes I feel like a storm cloud that at any moment will explode with thunder, lightning, and torrential rain. The kind of rain that causes flooding and tidal waves, and ruins lives. I think it can’t get much worse, and then I start spiraling out of control into a tornado or hurricane, leaving nothing but disaster in my wake.

More from Danielle on TwitterInstagramFacebook & her articles/interviews.

    I’m sorry you’re going through a rough time. I am as well. When I’m mistreated by someone or am in sensory overload, I ruin a lot of things, like a bad Tasmanian devil.
