Nino's Story: "I'm Me Again!"

Frauka family

Mother and son share their journey with mental illness

When Nino, now 27, started college eight years ago, things quickly began spiraling out of control for him. “We knew something wasn’t right. We just didn’t know what it was”, said his mom, Frauka.

Nino and Frauka shared their family's journey with mental illness in our recently released video "The Many Faces of Buckelew Programs: Stories of Hope and Recovery". Nino, his mom and his sister Stephanie were present for the premiere of the film at our MarinScapes 2016 Opening Gala.

“We felt like movie stars! And it was so powerful to meet other people whose lives have been changed by Buckelew Programs,” said Frauka,”I want this film to show others that there is hope and help!”

We are deeply grateful to videographer and producer S. Kramer Herzog for donating the filming and production of our new video "The Many Faces of Buckelew Programs: Stories of Hope and Recovery".

In this video, seven courageous people share their personal stories of hope and recovery from mental health issues and addiction, and the difference that Buckelew Programs services have made in their lives.

Dine and Donate at Mary's Pizza to support TAY Sonoma

Dine and Donate TAY Sonoma

Our Sonoma Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Program helps young adults age 18-25 with mental health issues find housing and learn independent living skills. We need to raise additional funds to help our youth with rental deposits and every day necessities such as transportation, household goods, tuition and clothing.

Bring your family and friends for pizza night to support this worthy cause at Mary's on 4th Street in Santa Rosa August 23!

MarinScapes 2016

Once again, our caring community came together at the beautiful rustic Escalle Winery in Larkspur this past June to enjoy breathtaking Marin landscape art and raise critical funds for Buckelew's mental health and addiction services.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to make this event a success!

This year's honoree was Dr. Marty Griffin, who helped preserve a landscape of hope through his efforts in saving the beauty of Marin and supporting mental health. Popular local TV host Doug McConnell helped us honor his longtime friend, and featured artist Christin Coy presented Marty with a framed print of her painting "Peaceful Afternoon, Bolinas Ridge and Lagoon".
