Kaiser, Don't Deny

Patients need access to consistent, reliable mental health services

Excellent caregivers are spread too thin

Published Tuesday, August 17, 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 Otay Mesa who has a great therapist –who she can’t get an appointment with.

I have an excellent psychiatrist but I can’t see her nearly often enough. It takes weeks to set up an appointment. I don’t know what would happen in an actual crisis situation.
