About this event

Supporting people with gambling concerns

Do you or your colleagues work with people who may have gambling concerns? Would you like to learn more about: how to screen for problem gambling; initiating a conversation about gambling; and support services for people with gambling concerns?

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are yet to be fully known, but there are concerns that problem gambling could increase due to: a greater need for distraction to de-stress and manage anxiety; more time, access and need for online gambling options; a surge in activity when gambling venues reopen with a relaxing of restrictions.

As a result, it is crucial that we are prepared for a likely increase in people experiencing problems with their level of gambling. To do this, we need to be able to screen for it, know what to look for, feel comfortable in starting a conversation about it and know what supports are available.
