We are incredibly saddened to hear of the sudden death of PHL based Flight Attendant, Diva Davis. The APFA EAP Department is here for our Flight Attendants.
The tragedy of an unexpected death of a coworker will naturally cause intense emotions and lead to a multitude of questions. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to deal with the sudden passing of someone we know. How we grieve is as individual as who we are.
Whether we are alone or with fellow Flight Attendants, it will take time to begin thinking clearly again. You may want to spend time or talk with fellow Flight Attendants to help you deal with unexpected emotions. Let your co-workers know how you are feeling and be available to give and receive support from one another as well.
This is a time where we all become aware of the fragility of life. Be kind to one another, be patient with one another, and have compassion for one another.
At the APFA EAP Department, we are a trained group of Flight Attendants who can assist you with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and emotional distress. Our Critical Incident Response Team is designed to help Flight Attendants cope with the adverse physiological and psychological stress that often occurs in the aftermath of a traumatic event.
