Join a Committee | Make A Difference

Volunteering on a committee is an excellent way to expand your network, and strengthen and build your practice.  It's also a great way to develop relationships with fellow SEFAPP members, many of whom are established local mental health clinicians. 

Joining a committee doesn’t require a set commitment of time. You can participate in a variety of ways, with as little or as much time as you have available.

Feel free to contact the Chairperson listed below, or email us at for more information on how you can help.

Thank you for your interest!

The fundraising committee oversees our annual fundraising event called " Freud Amongst the Arts". At these events, we honor colleagues for their contribution to the field of Psychoanalysis. We also raise funds for SEFAPP and SEFIPP. These funds are used to provide continuing education for mental health professionals, professional development, and the scholarly exchange of ideas. Fundraising proceeds may also go towards various community outreach programs that have been adopted as a focus of concern by SEFAPP and SEFIPP. The event is also an opportunity to socialize and network with colleagues. 

Volunteers with an interest in event planning and/or contacts in local businesses would be most welcome. for more information or contact our office.
