Los Angeles County Jail Mental Health Services (JMHS) is uniquely positioned to promote substantial change in clinical service delivery and training for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage family therapists, peers, and other mental health professionals.

The Los Angeles County Jail is often referred to as the largest mental institution in the country, if not the world. With increasing numbers of individuals receiving mental healthcare while incarcerated, the need to hire is critical for the ongoing provision of quality mental health and community reintegration services. JMHS offers generous benefits with flexible scheduling, paid overtime, supervision, teaching, and academic opportunities. Openings available!
