Category: Employment

Join our staff! The Coalition has a rare job opening for a Trauma and Behavioral Health Systems Coordinator. Domestic and sexual violence are associated with a broad range of negative trauma-related behavioral health effects, but the systems to which survivors turn are frequently unprepared to respond to these needs. Behavioral healthcare and victim service providers in King County do not have consistent training, screening and response practices, or referral protocols addressing the intersection of gender-based violence and behavioral health. There is considerable
evidence that people from marginalized communities are at significantly higher risk for experiencing domestic and sexual violence, and also suffer greater negative impacts from the abuse they face. The Systems Coordinator will identify and lead activities aimed at improving relationships, facilitating cross-disciplinary coordination, and increasing knowledge within and between domestic violence, sexual assault, and behavioral health programs across King County, so that survivors with behavioral health concerns receive the help they need.
