Kaiser Patient Stories
I lost my Mom to suicidePublished Saturday, April 13, 2019
I lost my Mom to suicide and was deeply depressed. I waited weeks for an appointment with a Kaiser clinician, only to be referred to a weekly depression class. Thankfully, I had the means to seek out a private therapist on my own, who later referred me to a psychiatrist. It was with weekly therapy sessions and medication that I finally saw improvement. I should have been able to get the care I needed through the insurance that I pay for.
