What Does the EAP Employee Assistance Committee Do?
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.
The EAP 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.
Why Would I Contact the EAP Committee?

- Assistance in conflict situations with coworkers (flight attendants and pilots).
Are EAP services confidential?
