National Problem Gambling Awareness Month
This year the National Council on Problem Gambling expanded its annual awareness campaign to encompass the entire month of March. March 2014 made the 1st Annual National Problem Gambling Awareness month (NPGAM). This year's theme was "Navigate Problem Gambling". 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. 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.
