Become a PADA Member

We value your annual membership with us! It is because of people like you who are passionate about perinatal mental health, that we are able to provide tools, resources and training within our communities, and strengthen our work. Your membership also enables us to continue to operate as a registered incorporated society. We receive no regular government funding for our work, relying solely on grants from trusts and foundations, and generous donations.

From only $40 per year, you would receive a wide range of benefits, while helping us to provide educationtools and networking for health professionals supporting parents and whānau during the perinatal period.

These exciting membership benefits are available to individuals for $40 or organisations at $80. An organisation membership entitles up to four of your team to attend our events at the reduced fee. Membership runs one year from the date of payment received. Longer term membership options are available on request.

Join our ‘collective voice’ with the proceeds of your membership going directly towards advocacy and providing training to improve services for new families and whānau.
