AFT members work hard, now more than ever, to educate, heal, help and serve our communities. Sometimes our own stress is compounded by a personal or workplace trauma; still, we struggle to be fully present for others. Now the AFT is offering a new, free benefit, trauma counseling, to provide help and healing for our members, whenever needed, wherever a member may be.
These AFT-paid trauma counseling sessions with highly trained therapists are completely private and set up to take advantage of the latest communication technologies: phone, text, video, and even artificial intelligence. They are free and available to all active working members, including those on leave status.
