Introducing the Union Assistance Program
We are pleased to announce a brand new benefit available to all members of the New York State Nurses Association — the Union Assistance Program (UAP).
Members utilizing the UAP can speak directly with professional counselors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, via a toll-free number. Counselors can assist Members with issues including: Family, Stress, Mental Health, Job Related Difficulties, Loss and Grief, and Life Changes. All conversations are confidential.
Every counselor has a Master's or Ph.D., and staff counselors provide direct in-the-moment counseling. They act as case managers when referrals are made to local counselors or other work-life or wellness resources, overseeing each case to its ultimate closure — regardless of the amount of time involved in assisting the Member.
