The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) is pleased to present the National Problem Gambling Awareness Month (NPGAM) campaign, a grassroots public awareness and outreach campaign. The goal of this campaign is to educate the general public, and healthcare professionals about the warning signs of problem gambling and raise awareness about the help that is available both locally and nationally. The campaign was previously held during the first week of March to coincide with March Madness, one of the most widely bet upon events in the United States. Now, the campaign takes place during the entire month of March!

We hope that you find these free materials useful in promoting awareness of problem gambling. We’d love for you to share your activities with us via social media (use the hashtag #npgam) or email Amy Feinberg atwith questions.
