1. Online paperwork

Please click here to get your online New Member paperwork started. Once you complete and submit your paperwork, you will be contacted by a Gilda’s Club Program Staff member to get things started. Please allow 48 hours to be contacted (Monday – Friday).

If you are uncomfortable with our online paperwork or have questions, please call 248-577-0800 to be connected to someone who can answer your questions and help you schedule a New Member Meeting.

2. Attend a New Member Meeting

At our New Member Meeting (available in-person at our three physical locations, as well as virtually), you will be given a comprehensive overview of our program by one of our Program Staff Members, who are all licensed mental health professionals. At that time, you will explore how the Gilda’s community can help meet your specific social-emotional needs. 

If you would prefer to schedule a New Member Meeting prior to filling out your paperwork, you are welcome to do that. Please click here to sign up for a New Member Meeting.
