Benefits of Joining

Thank you for your interest in joining the DC Metro Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative. Read more below about the benefits of joining and the requirements for participation in the group.

The Benefits of Joining

Quarterly Salons

Membership entitles you to four quarterly Salons per year. Our quarterly Salons feature guest speakers and presentations on topics related to perinatal and maternal mental health. Salons are held in the evening from 7 pm – 9 pm. We make every effort to vary the night of the week to accommodate our members’ schedules. Salons are a combination of in-person and virtual.

Referral Database

Members are given access to a referral database that is made up of member recommended auxiliary providers (OB-GYNs, Pediatricians, Doulas, Nutritionists etc.)

Members Listserv

Members have access to the DC Metro Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative listserv.

The listserv enables members to communicate and is a fantastic resource for referrals, recommendations, and educational information.


Occasionally, the Collaborative hosts smaller meetups and social events (ex., movie screenings, book clubs). Members have an open invitation to attend any of these events.

Member Directory Listing

Membership includes a professional profile listing on our website so that other providers and potential clients can contact you easily.
