Kaiser Patient Stories

I have begged for help

Published Sunday, January 20, 2019

I have been experiencing PPD symptoms since my first born. It takes a month before they can see me. I asked for a referral for a therapist who could see me more consistently And they offered me a cancelled appointment the next day that I can never make due to having 2 under 2. I have begged for help and they won’t give me an appointment for over a month. I had to call the crisis line yesterday.

I have been experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression since my first child was born. It takes a month before anyone at Kaiser can see me. I asked for a referral to a therapist who could see me more consistently and was offered me a cancelled appointment the next day, which I couldn’t make because I have two small children. I have begged for help and they won’t give me an appointment for over a month. I had to call the crisis line yesterday.
