DMHAS: Problem Gambling Prevention


Problem Gambling Prevention promotes THREE important messages:

  • GAMBLING IS NOT A RISK-FREE ACTIVITY;
  • KNOW HOW TO KEEP THE "PROBLEM" OUT OF GAMBLING; AND
  • HELP IS AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH GAMBLING PROBLEMS AND PERSONS AFFECTED
  {What do you lose when you gamble and image of dice}
 
PROBLEM GAMBING PREVENTION SERVICES provides information, education, training and technical assistance to state, local and community based agencies, organizations and consumer groups to raise awareness and increase capacity throughout the life span and across the continuum of care.
