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 director of Broken Light Collective.

About this photo: “This is a shot from my last photowalk just before entering a psychiatric hospital last month. Looking ahead, the path was fuzzy, but I was determined to keep moving forward, one depressed step, and one click, at a time.

    Danielle, this is a powerful, courageous, honest, and thought-provoking piece of work and words. I love the p.o.v and beautiful glimpse of nature. It makes me wonder what you’re feeling, thinking and experiencing in those intense moments before entering the hospital for treatment.
