Problem Gambling Awareness Month
March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month.
The 2017 PGAM theme this year was “Have the Conversation". The goals of this national campaign:
PGAM is a grassroots campaign that depends on the participation of NCPG state Affiliates, organizational and individual members; state health agencies; gambling companies; recovery groups and a wide range of healthcare organizations and providers. 2017 is the 13th year for this event. Groups across America hold conferences, broadcast Public Service Announcements, provide counselor trainings, host screening days, insert paycheck stuffers, buy billboards and many other activities to provide thousands of hours of volunteer and community service. Calls to the NCPG National Helpline Network jump by an average of 30% in March, a measurable and meaningful nationwide impact.
