KQED’s in-depth coverage of mental health care in California
December 21st, 2016
KQED Radio health reporter April Dembosky produced an excellent series of stories delving into the obstacles that confront patients seeking mental health care services in California.
The State of Mind series culminated in an August 23 special edition of the California Report that compiled and updated stories Dembosky aired over the course of the year.

KQED also, devoted its June 10 Forum program to the issue of mental health parity. Dembosky was a featured guest and spent much of the first 10 minutes of the broadcast discussing NUHW members’ long struggle to bring Kaiser Permanente’s mental health services into compliance with state and federal mental health parity laws.
