AFA Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The AFA Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a resource for resolving problems through an international network of over 200 professionally-trained, peer support volunteer Flight Attendants overseen by mental health professionals. AFA EAP assists members in accessing appropriate medical help around mental health issues involving family crises, work-related trauma and chemical imbalance, as well as conflict resolution services and response to critical incidents.
Since 1980, AFA EAP has received numerous awards for our confidential support services to Flight Attendants, their families and partners, including the President’s Volunteer Action Award Citation for recognition of outstanding work, awarded by former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Today, AFA EAP is one of the largest union-sponsored member assistance programs in the industry. Other unions and associations often seek to model their programs on what AFA has so successfully implemented.
