Linda Allen receives Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award for Suicide Prevention Efforts

On January 22, Linda Allen, Director of FSA's Suicide Prevention Program, was honored with a Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award by the Marin County Human Rights Commission. FSA's Suicide Prevention and Crisis Counseling Hotline was founded 43 years ago and is Marin's only free 24/7 crisis resource. Since she accepted the position as Director in 1989, Linda has managed the significant expansion of the program to North Bay counties, which resulted in an 84% increase in callers since the project's inception.

"We're getting our son back!" - Sean's Story

TAY kids

"Our son developed a drug habit at age 19, just after graduating from High School. At this time he was also diagnosed with a psychosis and put on anti-psychotic medication."

Things got worse before they got better for Sean and his family. When his behavior was out of control, Sean's parents had to ask him to leave their house, and he bounced around between temporary housing, the streets, and jail.

After a suicide attempt, Sean was hospitalized - and eventually referred to Sonoma County's Transition Age Youth Program and Buckelew Supported Housing.

Helen Vine Recovery Center Needs a New Home

TAY kids

A critical resource for Marin County is at risk. Our only detox facility, Helen Vine Recovery Center, part of Buckelew Programs, is facing a very serious challenge - it needs a new home by February 2016. One year away may seem like a long time, but the reality of locating an acceptable site for detox, then renovating and licensing it, make that time very short.

Napa Programs receive Housing Grant

TAY kids

Buckelew's Napa Supported Housing Program is fortunate to be among the recipients of a total of $200,000 in grant funds distributed to local non-profit organizations dedicated to affordable housing by Napa County Housing and Intergovernmental Affairs. The $20,000 grant we were awarded will help provide housing and support services to 12 low income Napa residents with mental illness.
