Join Us!

Are you an organisation involved in the field of mental health or interested in related issues? Show us your support for the common cause by becoming a member of the Alliance!

What does membership involve?

Membership is agreed on the understanding that an interested organisation is willing to support Alliance policy and that it is happy to endorse the recommendations in the Alliance’s Policy Agenda, which constitutes the most recently published Alliance policy and campaigning platform.

All members can, of course, continue to act independently on Mental Health Act issues, but should agree not to do anything to contradict or undermine the Alliance’s aims or to duplicate work done in the Alliance’s name.

Should we join as core or associate members?

There are two levels of Mental Health Alliance membership: core and associate.

Core members tend to be larger organisations working mainly in the field of mental health.

Associate members are either smaller mental health organisations with less financial security, or organisations for whom mental health is only one of their areas of work.

Where does our money go?

Membership fees are channeled directly into the Mental Health Alliance’s fighting fund and are used to finance publications, Parliamentary and regional campaigning activity and any other costs incurred by the Alliance’s work. The budget also pays for one part time member of staff who co-ordinates work done by members of the Alliance and acts as a central point of contact. Meeting rooms, office space, and financial management have all been donated by members.
