National Problem Gambling Awareness Month
The National Council on Problem Gambling's (NCPG) annual awareness campaign encompasses the entire month of March. This year's theme was "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 announce 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 NPGAM.
Additional materials on Problem Gambling can be downloaded from KnowTheOdds.org.
