National Problem Gambling Awareness Month

The National Council on Problem Gambling's (NCPG) annual awareness campaign encompasses the entire month of March. March 2015 makes the 2nd Annual National Problem Gambling Awareness month (NPGAM). This year's theme is "Problem Gambing: Have the Conversation". The goal of this campaign is to educate the general public and health care 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 U.S. The NCPG issued a press release to annouce this years effort. To help promote awareness of problem gambling, you can find materials at www.npgaw.org .

In previous years, OASAS generated a multi-media campaign with television and Internet that has aired during NPGAW.

Additional materials on Problem Gambling can be downloaded from KnowTheOdds.org.

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call the 1-877-8-HOPENY for help or information on Problem Gambling. Trained staff are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
