Traditions Behavioral Health

The licensed physicians and nurse practitioners employed by TRADITIONS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH,  a Psychological Corporation, are the largest single group of providers of psychiatric services to adult & child populations in institutional and community-based programs in California.

Our psychiatrists and nurse practitioners take a unique multidisciplinary approach that considers the physical, psychiatric, psychosocial, cultural and medical needs of our adult and older adult patients in providing our mental health services. Our psychiatrists provide services to the seriously and persistently mentally ill in Eureka, San Francisco/Bay Area, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Los Angeles areas.

In addition to 16 ACT programs, our psychiatrists provide the inpatient services for Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Santa Clara County, Ventura County, and Los Angeles thru La Casa PHF. We have over 300 beds in our care in the LA area and over 300 beds in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our packages vary from a minimum of $265,000 per year, plus $10,000 in bonuses and a benefit package of $80,000, to well over $500,000 for the industrious physician; Nurse Practitioner salaries start at $145,800. Our generous benefit package includes almost 7 weeks paid time off per year. Outstanding rural community additional supplements are also available with salaries often as high as 20% more than urban areas.

If you are creative and think outside the box, if you value diversity and cultural competency, if you like innovative programs that are patient driven, using a rehabilitative, rather than an illness model, if you want more time to work with patients, to get the best results, then TBH is the company for you.
