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 Craig A. Miller, an author, speaker, photographer, and suicide attempt survivor from Boston. For many years he struggled with OCD, extreme anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. After a suicide attempt nearly ended his life at age 20, he became dedicated to understanding what led him to such a decision, and more importantly how he could gain control of himself and his life to ensure it would never happen again. He published a book in 2012 titled, This is How it Feels: a memoir of attempting suicide and finding life. He is a member of The Massachusetts Coalition for Suicide Prevention and regularly speaks everywhere from libraries to state conferences sharing his story and the steps he took to move forward.

About this photo: “Lynks has always helped me through tough times. I swear he’s in tune with how I feel.

    What a sweet picture of a puddy! I like cats and call them puddy tats, like Tweety Bird. Your cat is beautiful, physically, but it is what’s inside that counts. That he loves you and comforts you is the gift. I got a cat last year. She is a beauty, but she isn’t into cuddling or comforting. She is more of a border. She does prefer drinking from the tap, just like your Lynks!♥

    What a beauty!! He is definitely a therapy cat… I have a therapy beagle and also a tabby cat. Both have helped me survive. I don’t know what I’d do without them. Animals sure are blessings!! Your photograph is awesome!!
