GAMHPA Listserv Messaging Service

GAMHPA offers it's members a free Member-To-Member Listserv e-mail service.

What is a Listserv?  A "listserv" is a method for a group of people to communicate via e-mail. Any member of the group can send a message to a central e-mail address, and then software automatically sends that e-mail to all of the members of the group. All members can view the original e-mail and respond to it. Responses are also viewed by all members. This creates an open communication network among members, or, quite literally, a group discussion.

To Subscribe, send an e-mail request to the moderator, below.  Include your name. You must be a GAMHPA member to participate. Once you sign up, everything is done via e-mail.

To submit a message to the Listserv, e-mail your message directly to the listserv at Your message will then be e-mailed immediately to all participants.

Please Note: Keep in mind that this service is only being used by GAMHPA members, so only those who are part of this community will be participating.


You can opt out of this service anytime by

clicking the "Unsubscribe Now" link at the bottom of the e-mail.

Listserv Guidelines:

  • You must be a GAMHPA member participate or to post a message. We will not accept messages being placed by someone who is not a member or on behalf of a non-member. (Except a member’s agency or place of employment offering workshops or employment/internship opportunities). If someone outside of GAMHPA wants to place a message, please encourage them to become a member.
  • The purpose of this service is to facilitate collegial interaction and clinical information within the GAMHPA community.
  • Posts should be written to respect differences of opinion, invite discussion, and stimulate conversation. Please keep messages courteous, supportive, constructive, and brief.
  • This service welcomes messages for office space, groups or workshops, jobs & internships, specialized services & resources, dialogue regarding clinical & ethical questions, case consultation, sharing techniques, and announcements about educational presentations & events.
  • When making requests for resources for your patients, please note that having the word “referral” in a listserv request may create a responsibility or liability on the part of GAMHPA.  Therefore, we request that you utilize a title such as “Seeking Group for Women in Transition, Burbank.”
  • Please limit descriptive characterizations of a client only to those elements that are necessary, but that would not inadvertently violate confidentiality.
  • Please include descriptive information in the subject so that those disinterested may delete without reading, such as "Looking for Office Space in Glendale" or "Seeking Individual Therapist for 14 Year Old Male, AD/HD, Burbank Area.”
  • Whenever possible, please include your message in the body of the e-mail rather than as an attachment.  Attachments over 1.0 Mb may be rejected.
  • We will not accept messages for general self-promotions, address changes, etc.
  • A message for a given topic can only be submitted once per month.  If you need your message to run more frequently, you can place an ad in our newsletter.
  • GAMHPA reserves the right to edit, screen, or deny posts that do not meet these guidelines.
