Member Assistance Program

Are you, or anyone close to you, dealing with substance abuse or mental health issues?  The IU offers a completely confidential service, at no cost to the member or their family, called the Member Assistance Program (MAP). Some of the issues MAP can assist with are: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Alcohol and drug addiction
  • Positive workplace drug urine screens
  • Domestic Violence
  • Prescription assistance for the uninsured
  • Family conflict
  • Homelessness
  • Chronic mental health problems
  • Retirement needs

Active and retired Union members and their families may call toll-free to speak confidentially to trained & licensed mental health professionals.  With the member’s permission, the MAP team does the legwork on behalf of the member to connect them to the help they need, including contacting insurance representatives and locating provider referrals near the member. MAP can also assist uninsured members to connect with necessary services. All calls to MAP are kept strictly confidential. It is important to remember that federal law protects your privacy. This means that the MAP professional will not discuss your call with job supervisors, local Union leaders or anyone else, unless you give your permission.

Call 888-880-8222 and ask for the MAP program Monday through Friday, between 7am and 6pm Central Time. More information can be found here on the IU's website. There are also brochures on the program available at the Union Hall.
