Job Description:

The Leidos Military & Veterans Health Solutions Group is seeking a Mental Healthcare Coordinator (Outreach Coordinator) to work 40 hours per week on the Navy's Organizational Incident Operational Nexus (ORION) program. The ORION Trauma Tracker is a program for Service members exposed to unit-level, non-combat trauma. ORION is designed to provide comprehensive tracking of psychological trauma exposure and targeted outreach "Caring Contacts" to Service members at elevated risk for psychological injury. This position is eligible to tele-work 1 day a week.

In this new role, Leidos will provide an "ORION Outreach Coordinator" to support a contract with the Naval Center for Combat & Operational Stress Control (NCCOSC) (Psychological Science & Analytics Dept.) in San Diego, CA.  Under the M333 Mental Health/Primary Care Directorate of the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED), NCCOSC optimizes force psychological readiness through development, aggregation, analysis, and dissemination of best practices and innovations in primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of psychological illness and injury.

Primary Responsibilities

The Mental Healthcare Coordinator will work as an ORION Outreach Coordinator team member to track Service members in ORION who are exposed to unit level, non-combat trauma and conduct Caring Contacts to those Service members.

ORION Outreach Coordinators will offer mental health care options to those Service members who request assistance with connecting to mental healthcare during Caring Contacts. The Outreach Coordinators will act as a liaison for Service members and collaborate with mental health staff at relevant clinics/facilities to coordinate mental healthcare.  This position may require Caring Contacts to be conducted during non-business hours in order to complete phone calls to Service members outside of the continental U.S. Caring contacts will be logged in the ORION Carepoint registry, however, the incumbent will not be required to document in a medical record. The ORION Outreach Coordinator will be expected to manage daily operations and administrative activities of the ORION Trauma Tracker program. Additionally, this position may be required to liaise with military Commands and the surrounding military fleet.
