Inyo County, the second largest county in California, is spread across the high-desert and alpine environments of the Eastern Sierra slope along the California-Nevada border.

The Deputy Director provides leadership to the Behavioral Health team in the provision of trauma-informed prevention and treatment services. This position will plan, oversee, direct, and provide guidance to multiple programs, including outpatient mental health and SUD services; Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) programs, including two Wellness Centers; Progress House, a 24-hour residential program; and crisis response, including oversight of a 24-hour mental health on-call response system. With guidance from the Behavioral Health Advisory Board, this position will assess the need for and feasibility of new and creative service lines and make recommendations to the Director of Health and Human Services and the County Board of Supervisors.
