VideoApril 20, 2019

On April 17, Kaiser patients, clinicians and community leaders came together with the goal of helping the HMO truly become a national model for mental health care, This gathering came just four months after Kaiser’s nearly 4,000 mental health clinicians, represented by the National Union of Healthcare Workers, held a five-day strike to demand that their patients no longer have to wait months for treatment appointments.

But, when several patients and their family members tried to enter the building in hopes of scheduling a meeting with CEO Bernard Tyson, Kaiser officials locked the doors.
