EAP – Employee Assistance Program

Employee Assistance Program

 

The AFA EAP helps members, their families and partners.

From time to time, everyone experiences personal or work-related problems. Sometimes, these problems can overwhelm our normal coping strategies. Support from a trained peer or a referral to a mental health professional may prove helpful.

The AFA EAP helps members, their families and partners deal with concerns on and off the job that affect them. The AFA EAP is strongly committed to the health, safety and well-being of all of its members.

Mission

The Association of Flight Attendants Employee Assistance Program (AFA EAP) is a confidential resource available to the members, their families and their partners to assist with personal, as well a work-related concerns. AFA EAP provides three distinct but interrelated services, including:

      • Assessment, support and resource referral
      • Advancement of professional standards through conflict resolution
      • Response to critical and traumatic incidents. AFA’s objective in providing these services is to enhance the health, safety and well-being of its union family with the highest quality of peer support available within the EAP industry.

Flight Attendant Drug Use Screening

Designed for Flight Attendants

Take the six question drug use screening tool designed just for Flight Attendants.  Routinely evaluate your drug use just as you would other health issues.  Should you answer yes to two or ore of the below questions, it means that your use may have moved into risky use.  Please follow up with your Flight Attendant peer with the Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP).  Your conversations are confidential.

      • I have not shown up for a trip because of my use of a drug or medication one or more times in the past 12 months.
      • I have used a flying partner’s prescription medication one or more times in the past 12 months.
      • I have shared my prescription medication with a flying partner one or more times in the past 12 months.
      • I have used a prescription pain medication while performing my flight duties one or more times in the past 12 months.
      • I have bid my flying schedule to avoid a drug test one or more times in the past 12 months.
