March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM)! During the month of March, and all year long, we aim to raise awareness about problem gambling. The goal of this campaign is to educate the public and healthcare professionals about the warning signs of problem gambling and promote the availability of help and hope both locally and nationally.
NCPG encourages everyone to Have the Conversation about Problem Gambling. Most adults gamble or know someone who gambles, and therefore could benefit from programs to prevent gambling addiction. We believe many who suffer in silence do so because they don’t know why they developed a problem, what gambling addiction is or where to get help. Use the resources on this page to learn the signs of problem gambling and know that help is available.
Visit the PGAM Highlights Page to see how others are having the conversation about problem gambling.
PGAM is a grassroots campaign. We have provided a number of resources, free of charge, for you to share in your community. We encourage you to use and adapt these resources to meet the general goals of PGAM. There is no limit on the opportunities; be creative! Share your efforts with us on the Problem Gambling Awareness Month Facebook page and Twitter, #pgam or by contacting Amy Feinberg at
