Become a member


Meetings of the UK Maternal Mental Health Alliance occur three times a year. The membership of the Alliance includes national organisations and representation from the Royal Colleges. One person from each member organisation is eligible to attend meetings and contribute to the wider work of the Alliance. This work will be communicated to members through regular email and newsletters as well as minutes of meetings three times a year.

We also maintain an email list of supporters who are contacted about the work of the Alliance and any important updates.

The Alliance also attracts interest from other stakeholders, experts by experience and local organisations.

Please follow us on Twitter to keep in touch with our work @MMHAlliance


Becoming a member of the Alliance

The main criteria for membership of the Alliance are that:

  1. you are a UK charity or non profit-making organisation in agreement with our vision and aims, and
  2. you are a national rather than a regional organisation

Our vision is ‘to improve the lives of mothers and their infants’. We are motivated by the current shortfall in the quality, availability and accessibility of antenatal and postnatal mental health care and the lack of knowledge about this issue amongst health and social work professionals and the wider public. The MMHA focuses on three routes to improving perinatal mental health services: awareness, education and action.

We do not have the capacity to engage with the many local organisations doing wonderful work supporting maternal mental health, though we would be pleased to put you on our email supporter list to receive newsletters and updates. You can also sign up for the MMHA’s Everyone’s Business Campaign newsletter

If you would like to become a member or supporter of the Alliance please email and we will send you further details plus information about our joining fee.
