• Stand Up in March for Help for Problem Gambling

    Have the conversation with your elected officials and bring help and hope to problem gamblers

    One of the most important things you can do during Problem Gambling Awareness Month in March is to advocate for services to help people with gambling problems throughout the year.  Advocacy is essential as while the vast majority of Americans gamble without significant consequences at least six million people will experience serious problems with their gambling.  And the impact will be felt by their families, colleagues and others in society.  However, gambling addiction too often is not seen as a public policy issue, but rather as a personal or individual problem.  For full press release and specific advocacy action items click here.
