Institutional membership with ADAA for our clinic has been an exciting step.

I can't think of a better way to put my money to work than group membership with the Anxiety and Depression Association of America for my organization Light On Anxiety. To have the opportunity to make ADAA's wealth of professional resources and trainings available to my staff is priceless. Thanks to ADAA, I do not have to have an in-house training department to ensure my clinical team is armed with the latest and greatest information on empirically supported treatments for anxiety, depression and related disorders. - Debra Kissen, PhD, MHSA -Light on Anxiety

Frequently Asked Questions

Why join as a group?
Institutional memberships allow everyone at your practice or organization to benefit from ADAA membership at a discounted rate. Additionally, your organization manages the memberships under one annual invoice with one renewal date.

Some organization staff members are already members. Can they still join the group?
Initial applications are open to new ADAA members only. Current ADAA members can be rolled into the Institutional Memberships at their next regular renewal date.

Can individual participants pay their dues separately?
No, to receive the discounted rates and for the memberships to remain with the organization, the invoice must be paid with one payment.

Can we add people to the group throughout the year?
Yes. If a current member leaves your organization mid-membership year, that membership spot may be transferred to a new staff member. Additionally, new staff members may be added at any time. New mid-membership year additions will be prorated to match the groups renewal date.

Can I process an Institutional Membership or renewal online?
No, the only way to process an Institutional Membership is to email this membership application to ADAA. Once approved an invoice will be provided.

Similarly, for renewals, ADAA will provide an invoice after confirming the number of memberships.
