I have been denied care

Published Thursday, July 29, 2021

I had an intake telephone appointment with a LCSW yesterday and after having b been diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety/panic disorder.  I was told that there were no appointments available through November and that there could not be an appointment made for me at this time. I was then offered a group class on “coping skills” in mid-September. Essentially, I have been denied care.
