ESSP is an Employee Assistance Program that can help in the identification, education, referral and follow-up of issues that employees may be experiencing.

The ESSP program is designed to assist employees with a number of issues, including:
- Substance abuse
- Safe working environment
- Emotional distress
- Major life events, including births
- Accidents and deaths
- Health care concerns
- Financial or legal concerns
- Family/personal relationship issues

All UAW-Ford hourly active employees (including STS and TPT), Salaried employees (including supplemental) and Dependent family members are eligible for services.
The first step is recognizing that a problem exists. The second step is to contact your local ESSP Representative for assistance and guidance. Contact information for LAP ESSP Representatives is provided below.
