What is a waitlist?

← All Topics

A waitlist is a tool used by therapists when their schedules are completely full.

Therapists will reach out to people on their waitlist when they have an opening in their schedule, or when a current client cancels an appointment. 

Sometimes this waitlist can be months long, so if you’re in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-275-8255 to get help immediately.

Mental Health Match can help you find someone who is taking new clients.
