AFA’s Employee Assistance Program

We’ve all faced moments of crisis in our professional and personal lives, when our problems overwhelm normal coping strategies. AFA makes sure you have someone to talk to – in fact, we train your peers to help you solve your problems without resorting to company involvement.

AFA EAP is a confidential resource available to all AFA members, their families and their partners. It 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.

No problem is too small for AFA EAP! In fact, we encourage Flight Attendants and their immediate families to call when a concern first develops. The unique services of our program are available to Flight Attendants at airlines where we have an ongoing union organizing campaign as well. Remember, reaching out for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Usually the sooner you share a problem, the sooner you begin to find a solution.

AFA has trained EAP representatives at every airline, in every domicile. You can also call a 24-hour help line at AFA International headquarters in Washington, DC, staffed by licensed and certified mental health professionals. The number is 1-800-424-2406. We offer resources as well as referrals to your AFA EAP Reps to assist members and their families. For more information, visit our website at: afacwa.org/eap.
