|About Our Employment Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in Alabama’s Department
of Mental Health. Great strides have been made in
upgrading the quality of services to Alabama citizens in mental health care. We are proud of our department and what it has to offer
prospective employees. Competitive salaries, excellent fringe benefits,
fair employment practices, and opportunities for continuing your career
growth are just a few of the advantages of working in our system.
Our department offers a broad range of professional
positions which are not classified under the state merit system. These
non merit, or exempt, positions were established to expedite the hiring
process and, thereby, improve service delivery in the areas of mental
illness, intellectual disability, and substance abuse. The positions provide
applicants with numerous opportunities for professional growth while
enjoying the benefits of state employment.
A list of vacancies for exempt positions in our
central administrative office, regional community services offices and mental illness facilities throughout the state is available for viewing on this website.
