Kaiser, Don't Deny
Patients need access to consistent, reliable mental health services
Kaiser Patient Stories
This is simply unacceptablePublished Sunday, March 17, 2019
I had a relapse of an emotional breakdown I’d experienced following the death of my husband several years ago. While Kaiser was quick to prescribe antidepressants, I was told that the wait to see a therapist was averaging two and a half months. That was in October. I had my first visit on December 7, and was told the next one would be February 18. I cannot afford outside therapy at $180 an hour. This is simply unacceptable, and my view of Kaiser, which had been good, has declined radically.
