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 Annie, a woman living with PTSD, anxiety, depression and dissociation. Annie lives with her feline companion, Zoe. She enjoys reading, writing, walking, and meditation.

About this photo: “Shocked and saddened by recent world events, I turn further inward and reflect….
Reflect on what, if anything I can do. 
I can’t change what happened.

A wave of hopelessness overcomes me.

So I meditate….
How do I become a light in this darkness?

    Yup. This image says it all for me. I didn’t know how the count was going on Election Night, but I woke up in the night intuiting that It was not going well. And next morning…shocked and saddened, indeed. Thank you, Annie.
