Hey, guess what.
The strike due to begin today for all Kaiser Northern California mental health clinics has been called off! My dad emailed the good news from the East Coast before I was even awake. You can read about the developments on the NUHW website.
I’ll be going on an extra long walk with my dog this morning to recover from the excitement of the last week.
Congratulations to all those Kaiser members with mental health and substance abuse challenges, their families and friends, their therapists, and NUHW’s superb staff, who have been working toward moments like this one for the last five years.
There’s still a long way to go, true. But the mountain just inched to the left.
