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 who lives with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, and Dissociation. Annie copes by writing, drawing, reading, meditating, walking when able, and brushing her cat Rumi. She loves photography and feels music is very soothing.

About this photo: “He waits in the window for her to come home—sitting patiently.  She will be back, she always does. He misses her company and she his. She dislikes leaving him—it pains her spirit, they’ve become so close…so quickly.”

    I feel the same about my cat Sylvester. Sylvester is my therapy feline. One day I will contribute one of my photos also.
