My daughter had severe anxiety and depression

Published Wednesday, April 24, 2019

My daughter was going through a rough time. She had severe anxiety and depression. She began cutting. I tried to get her help. Kaiser assigned her a therapist who could only see her once every other month. They put her in a teen group, and I was with the parent group. A couple months in, I caught her taking a bunch of pills to kill herself. I rushed her to the emergency room. The psychologist let her come home, saying that  holding her would make her worse. Kaiser truly is a very concerning place if you are needing mental health services.
