Photo taken by contributor Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle has struggled with an anxiety disorder for most of his life. After a traumatic accident ended his career in health care, his life became unmanageable and he sought out the help that he so desperately needed. As a longtime photographer, when he found Broken Light Collective in an article it instantly resonated. He now runs a photography program at his local mental health association. He has since become a certified mental health peer specialist and advocate. He also writes local editorial and uses his platform to help erase the stigma of mental illness in his community.
About this photo: “I look at the sign and it invites me in. My own reflection however, keeps me on the other side of the glass. What was it that St. Paul said? Something about when perfection comes, then shall we see clearly? Was that it?
Sometimes when I look into that “Glass Darkly”, my reflection is the clearest thing I see.”
