ATLANTA -- Job seekers can now get information about openings at the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) at the state agency’s new jobs website: www.DBHDDJobs.com. The website lists employment opportunities at DBHDD’s Atlanta headquarters as well as the state hospitals and regional offices overseen by the department across the state. Job applications and information about state benefits are also available.
“Our number one priority as a new agency is to staff up, bringing in the right people with the right skills to give the best care possible to the people we serve,” said Rhian Sharp, Director of the Office of Human Resources at DBHDD. “We’re looking for people who thrive on challenges and strive to make a difference. There’s no doubt that working in Georgia’s behavioral health system is challenging. At the same time, it offers the opportunity to make an immediate difference.”
DBHDD is the state agency that focuses solely on policies, programs, and services for people with mental illness, substance use disorders, and developmental disabilities. It began operations on July 1, 2009. In addition to its Atlanta offices, the department operates seven regional and state hospitals located in Rome, Atlanta, Milledgeville, Augusta, Columbus, Thomasville, and Savannah.
