We are trying to get help for our son.

Published Wednesday, October 9, 2019

We are trying to get help for our son. We had to wait over a month for a first appointment and a month for a second! He also has to miss, or it would have been six weeks! He already struggles in school due to his mental health issues. We are going to have to change health insurance this year during open enrollment in order to find suitable mental health care for him. It’s sad because we enjoy the ease of Kaiser, but our son’s mental health is more important.
