Your first step is to call us. You'll either talk to someone from our mental health care team at that time or schedule an initial assessment for a later date. During your assessment, you’ll talk about what you’re experiencing, why you’re seeking care, things you can do now to support your mental health, and what you hope to achieve through treatment. Your answers will help us figure out what type of care will be most helpful for you — whether you need tools and resources for healthy living, therapy, medication, or a combination of treatments.
Depending on where you live and the care you need, there's a chance that you might get care outside of Kaiser Permanente. The demand for mental health care is higher than ever — so we work with outside providers who we trust to make sure members can access the support they need.
