Behind the Wall: The True Story of Mental Illness as Told by Parents

Rick and Eric

Free event! Co-sponsored by Buckelew Programs and NAMI Marin.

Thursday, August 27 at 7pm

Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd, Corte Madera, CA 94925

Author Mary Widdifield will read from the book she wrote with her sister and have a conversation with the audience about supporting a loved one with mental illness. Buckelew and NAMI staff will be present to share resources.

When Elin Widdifield learned her son’s mental illness diagnosis, she and her sister, Mary, recognized that stories about the experiences of parenting a child with a mental illness had not been told.

Hayly's Story

Rick and Eric

"I have mental illness, but I don't want mental illness to have me!"

Hayly is one of those naturally funny people, with a warm and infectious laugh, and full of energy. Talking to her, one would not guess that she struggles with severe depression at times, exacerbated by challenging physical ailments that often make it painful for her to be active. Slowing down is hard for Hayly, a graduate of Buckelew Programs, who talks fast and has a quick wit:

“I’ve always looked at my mania as energy. I thought everybody else was just moving so slowly, it would drive me nuts…”

"Beginnings" helps moms and babies bond

Rick and Eric

With the help of a generous start-up grant from the Isabel Allende Foundation, Family Service Agency of Marin (FSA) is launching Beginnings, a sixteen-week Parent-Infant Psychotherapy program that provides support to mothers as they nurture loving, healthy families.

The program is designed to help new mothers identify and address histories of trauma and abuse that create serious obstacles to healthy parenting.

Spotlight on Legacy Society

Spotlight on Legacy Society

When George and Janet Hunter decided to join the Buckelew Legacy Society, they had a clear intention: "It's about making a difference in people's lives, not just now but in the future."  George and Janet are among several dedicated donors who have remembered Buckelew Programs in their will or estate plans through a planned gift.
