Employee Assistance Program

What does the Employee Assistant Program Committee do?

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: 

1) Assessment, support and resource referral
2) Advancement of professional standards through conflict resolution
3) 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.

Are EAP services confidential?  Yes! Your contacts and discussions with the EAP are confidential. Information is only released in accordance with federal and state confidentiality regulations.

Does the EAP cost anything?  No! Supported by your union dues since 1980, AFA-CWA’s nationally acclaimed EAP has provided free services to thousands of flight attendants, their families, and partners.

When should I call the EAP?  Anytime! Or, as soon as you, your partner, or family feel like a problem is getting too difficult to handle alone. No matter how small or large the problem may be, AFA-CWA EAP can help.

What happens when I call the EAP?  Good things! Your trained EAP peer representative can answer any questions you may have about EAP services available to you. The peer representative will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, offer guidance and support, and assist you with locating resources. The only thing you have to lose is the problem.

How do I access the EAP?  Many ways! You can contact your local peer representatives at the top right of this page.
