What does it mean to become a member?
Membership in the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (PMHANL) means
joining a rapidly growing network of organizations working together to foster positive change in
perinatal mental health to help ensure that birth parents and families receive the best possible mental
health care from the time pregnancy is considered to the infant’s first few years. PMHANL’s overall vision is to help foster an interconnected system of support for perinatal mental health services.
Is there a cost? A commitment?
There are no set criteria for membership other than a commitment to our vision and no
fee for joining. Meetings of the Alliance occur three times a year and frequent opportunities are given to participate in other relevant events and workshops.
Who can join?
Membership is open to persons with lived experience, service providers in all sectors (health care, community, family resource centres, education, etc.) and individuals who want to make a difference.
What are the benefits?
Joining the PMHANL gives you and your organisation an opportunity to work with other like-minded
people and organisations to influence as well as support service improvement in perinatal mental
health. Being part of the Alliance provides a chance to make vital connections and partnerships, to share
with and learn from others and to gain regular access to current information and news.
