Has Kaiser Permanente delayed or denied your mental health care? Have you or a loved one been forced to endure long waits for appointments?

The National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) represents Kaiser’s psychologists, therapists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses. Patients are currently forced to wait weeks, even months for therapy.

Kaiser clinicians, represented by NUHW, are taking action to show the HMO that it needs to do better. And you can help. If you’ve had difficulty obtaining mental health care services at Kaiser, share your story with us, and let’s show Kaiser executives the human cost of their failure to meet their patients’ needs.

In an emergency or in need of immediate help, dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.
