Kaiser is failing patients with mental health conditions

Published Thursday, August 11, 2022

Mental health services with Kaiser are a complete joke, and I’ve made this complaint in the past. The wait time to see a Kaiser clinician is about 3-4 months. Think of all the people that REALLY need immediate support. I was able to get a letter for outpatient services through Kaiser, but this still took about a month to obtain. And I know for a fact that after waiting 3-4 months for a first appointment, they’ll only give you one session every four weeks.
