Kaiser Oakland and Richmond psych services for children and teens

Hi, I'd like to hear about your experience with having part of your child's mental health care come from Kaiser Oakland, and part from Kaiser Richmond.  For example, does anyone have a psychiatrist in one location, and a therapist and/or group therapy and classes in another?  And if so, how is this working out for you?

My understanding is that it is technically possible but pretty difficult to do this in practice. You need a referral from someone at the specific facility to enroll in a children's mental health group, plus they can be very hard to find out about if your child's "quarterback" isn't there. I would say get your quarterback (LCSW, psychologist, or psychiatrist) on board with your child's specific needs and go from there with having them help loop you in to all the groups your child might fit with.
