PSNZ membership is open to people involved with the health and wellbeing of tamariki and rangatahi across Aotearoa. We all gain strength by working together to reduce the barriers between disciplines and geographical regions.

If you are working or training within child health and wellbeing, including in child health policy, we invite you to join the PSNZ. We recognise that excellence in child wellness and health requires multi-disciplinary input. PSNZ membership supplements membership of your own professional body and provides a multi-disciplinary environment to advance scientific and ethical practice in the sector.
