Kaiser, Don't Deny

Patients need access to consistent, reliable mental health services

Patients wait months for minimal care

Published Thursday, August 12, 2021

More than 1,400 Kaiser mental health patients have shared stories at kaiserdontdeny.org of care delayed or denied, and the stories keep coming in. Here’s a recent story from a patient in the Sacramento area who waited months to see a therapist, and even then only had limited, short-term access to her therapist’s care.

I joined Kaiser’s mental health services almost two years ago. First it took about 6 months to get a therapist, once I did we only had sessions once every two months. That only lasted less than a year then I got a lame excuse on why I can’t see my therapist anymore.
