Long before it looks like a problem, gambling can be causing harm. Harm from gambling isn’t just about losing money. Gambling can affect self-esteem, relationships, physical and mental health, work performance and social life. It can harm not only the person who gambles but also effects family, friends, workplaces and communities.
From 18 to 24 October, Council is supporting the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s Gambling Harm Awareness Week. The focus of the week is the theme Talk. Share. Support:
- Talk about the effect gambling is having on health and wellbeing, including feelings of anxiety or stress
