AFA Works for You! - Employee Assistance/Professional Standards
February 20, 2018
MEC Communications Committee
In this week’s AFA Works for You educational series, we focus on our Employee Assistance/ Professional Standards Committee and the difference these dedicated volunteers make every day for all of us. The volunteers on this committee provide a confidential resource to AFA Members, their spouses, partners and families to assist with personal, as well as 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 services available within the EAP industry.
Problems your EAP Committee can assist you with:
- Relationship issues, both professional and personal
- Family concerns
- Emotional well-being
- Physical health concerns
- Chemical dependency
- Other addictions
- Financial difficulties
- Legal matters
Each of our EAP/Professional Standards Committee Members are highly trained in many sensitive areas, including support and assistance to any Flight Attendant that may be struggling with drug or alcohol issues through our FADAP program. Flight Attendants who may be dealing with a confidential issue are never alone, as our EAP professionals are only a phone call away.
Our EAP/Professional Standards office in Washington DC (800-424-2406) is staffed by licensed and certified mental health professionals offering professional resources, as well as referrals, to your AFA EAP Reps as they assist Members, individually and collectively. We are Flight Attendants for Flight Attendants.
