CDPH Staff Vacancies – Update

CDPH Staff Vacancies – Update

There are two or three CDPH clinical therapist vacancies and only one has been posted on the City’s jobs website.  In May, CDPH reported that there were 2 therapist vacancies (Greater Grand and Lawndale). That was before a therapist left her position at North River. Apparently a therapist from Lawndale is transferring (or has transferred) to North River to fill the recent vacancy.  
 
CDPH still hasn’t named the medical director responsible for the mental health centers. CDPH has hired another non-clinical administrator to run the mental health program.
 
Currently, there are no psychiatry positions posted on the City’s job website.
 
The City mental health budget includes funding for the equivalent of two full time psychiatrist positions. One is filled.   According to the information CDPH posted to the federal Health Resources and Services Workforce Connector website, however, there are four available City mental health center psychiatry positions.
