NYSNA Mental Health Union Assistance Program
We are pleased to announce the creation of 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 staff counselors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, via a toll-free number. Counselors are there to assist with these issues: 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.
- Staff counselors provide direct in-the-moment counseling when a Member calls and 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.
