ADVANCED STEP PLACEMENT AVAILABLE

LA County recently approved incentives for psychiatrists that wish to work at our Antelope Valley and in the Jail Mental Health Services Programs. If you chose to provide work in one of these targeted areas, you will make over $25,000 more than you would at any other DMH psychiatrist position.

The CEO and Board of Supervisors just signed a new agreement between the Union and Management increasing salaries and other compensation benefits for Psychiatrists in addition to adding 27 new positions to our Directly Operated Clinics. That’s almost one for every clinic within the County!
