Printable Membership Application

Many of our Newsletter readers and Membership Directory recipients believe they are members of GAMHPA when they are not. In fact, 80% of our circulation are not members. If you have not completed an application or renewal and paid dues annually, then you are not a member. Only members receive the above additional benefits.

GAMHPA is an interest group only, will not provide referrals (though we do provide a Directory listings on this website), and does not credential in any way.

Membership in GAMHPA should not be construed as an endorsement by GAMHPA, nor as evidence of professional competency.

Why Join GAMHPA?

A Full Member is either a Board Certified or Board Eligible Psychiatrist; Licensed Psychologist; Licensed Clinical Social Worker; Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; or Psychiatric Nurse.

An Associate Member is anyone who is not credentialed at the independent level of clinical practice, such as a student, intern, apprentice, or psychological assistant. A student or intern must be sponsored by a Full Member. Associate Members may also be non-clinical, supporting friends or organizations.


Directories with member names and practice information are published annually, placed on the desks of potential referrers in the community. Newsletters with member advertising and articles are circulated bimonthly to over 800 readers in the local professional community.

Classified ads for groups, services, and office space are free to members. Members are randomly awarded the opportunity to bundle their practice flier or promotional brochure with the newsletter at no charge... a $400 value. Members receive discounts for display advertising, newsletter insert advertising, and mailing list address labels.

Members can publish articles in the newsletter on professional topics to gain collegial exposure and respect. Members may present a talk to colleagues on a professional topic, advertised as an association program event.

Reduced rates to members for local continuing education units applicable toward professional licensure renewal.

Equal membership is offered to all licensed mental health professionals regardless of discipline, reflecting real patterns of professional referral in the community.

A geographically local membership base reflects how most client referrals are local.

Membership dues are lower than most professional associations. Just $60 per year for licensed mental health professionals, $35 for students, interns, and allied professionals, $125 for organizations.
