Supporting the Mental Health and Well-Being of Federal Employees

  • Published

Our Federal Employees' mental health and well-being plays a crucial part in

the success of the Wing's mission.

 

The purpose of this transmittal is to ensure that you are aware of the services and accommodations that are available to you. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) and Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) health plans offer mental health services to employees and their family members. We encourage employees to  seek counseling and treatment related to their own mental health or that of a family member. It's important to note that medical need is not limited to physical health - it applies to mental health as well, and there should be no shame or embarrassment for using workplace flexibilities for a mental health reason.

Different options are available to you, as indicated below:

For an employee's own needs, they include Sick Leave for Personal Medical Needs, Family and Medical Leave, Parental Bereavement Leave, leave under the Voluntary Leave Bank Program or Voluntary Leave Transfer Program, Annual Leave, Advanced Sick Leave, Advanced Annual Leave, Leave without Pay, Alternative Work Schedules, Credit Hours under Flexible Work Schedules, Compensatory Time off and Telework.

For care of an employee's family member who is pursuing treatment, they include Sick Leave for Family Care and Bereavement, Sick Leave to Care for a Family Member with a Serious Health Condition, Family and Medical Leave, leave under the Voluntary Leave Bank Program or Voluntary Leave Transfer Program, Annual Leave, Advanced Sick Leave, Advanced Annual Leave, Leave without Pay, Alternative Work Schedules, Credit Hours under Flexible Work Schedules, Compensatory Time off and Telework.
