& Well Being

Kaiser Permanente is working to become the leader in providing mental health care for our members and patients, and ultimately provide a model for the delivery of mental health care in the community. We aim to define the vision of 21st century mental health care with a high-quality community of providers, emerging technologies that make it easy and convenient for members to connect, and evidence-based care with outcomes measured so we know it is working, and that patients are being helped.

 

We are proud that the mental health care we provide is among the highest rated not only in California, but in the country as a whole. Multiple independent rating bodies — from government agencies, to the nation’s premier care quality organizations, to employer groups that purchase care and coverage for their employees — have surveyed our care and found Kaiser Permanente to provide among the highest quality care available.

 

Even with these high marks, we are neither content with where we are, nor where mental health care is in America as a whole. We believe strongly that more can and must be done. So, we are working hard to continue improving quality and access to care, while also working to fundamentally advance the ways in which mental health care is provided — and measured — for patients in the future.
