    Tell Kaiser Permanente's CEO: Stop putting patients’ lives in danger

    For years, Kaiser Permanente -- California’s largest health insurer -- has put the lives of thousands of mental health patients at risk by not providing timely care -- forcing patients with serious mental illness to wait weeks and even months for urgent treatment.

    Hundreds of Courage Campaign members have left testimonials detailing their horrific experiences with Kaiser's mental health services, including several that ended in tragedy.

    Kaiser has even admitted guilt by paying a near record-breaking fine of $4 million for its illegal delays. But despite making over $3 BILLION in profits in 2014, Kaiser still refuses to staff its mental health departments with enough clinicians to handle the caseload.

    SIGN THE PETITION and tell Kaiser CEO Bernard Tyson:

    "As an executive at Kaiser Permanente, you have the power to stop putting profits before patients and provide quality mental healthcare for your members who need timely treatment. Despite a $4 million fine, patients still suffer. I ask that you IMMEDIATELY present and execute a plan to reduce wait times for mental health patients seeking treatment -- such as the National Union of Healthcare Workers' common-sense proposal for clinician–management committees to work together to determine each facility's staffing needs."
