According to the Pocket Guide to APA Style by Robert Perrin, you'll use the following format for a pamphlet or brochure in your APA reference list:

Lastname, First initial(s) or Organization Name (if given). (Date.) Title of brochure [Brochure]. Place: Publisher.

When there is missing information, use the following abbreviations: N.P. for "no place of publication," n.p. for "no publisher," and n.d. for "no date." Note that these abbreviations are NOT italicized in the reference list entry.

Example with an author given:
Strock, M. (2002). Depression [Pamphlet]. Bethesda, MD: National Institutes of Health.

Example with no author given:
Information about hate crimes [Brochure]. (n.d.) San Diego, CA: Office of the District Attorney.

In-text citations will follow this format: (Author, Date) or (Title, Date).
