PPSM is an entirely volunteer-run organization that promotes awareness, education, and advocacy of perinatal mental health issues. Membership dues help fund new and ongoing projects that provide services to our community. We offer the following membership options so that you might support our efforts, and share your expertise! We also offer our professional members additional benefits, including free & low-cost continuing education opportunities, a Facebook consultation group, referrals for services, and more!
If you have questions about membership, please contact our Membership Director, Maureen Campion, directly. Thank you!
