Kaiser, Don't Deny

Patients need access to consistent, reliable mental health services

A two-month wait for help

Published Thursday, August 26, 2021

More than 1,400 Kaiser mental health patients have shared stories at kaiserdontdeny.org of care delayed or denied, and the stories keep coming in. Here’s a recent story from a patient in San Rafael who has to go two months between therapy appointments.

I waited eight weeks between psychiatrist visits. All she did was give me medications, all of which made me feel worse. Therapy included video visits in chat rooms with other people. That’s no help at all.
