Gambling harm starts sooner than you think

Gambling is ever present in our communities and on the news, especially lately with the fast paced growth and ease of sports gambling.

Anna and Mario, two ReSPIN volunteers with lived experience of gambling harm speak briefly about the early signs that may have prevented their downward progression if they had been able to act on them at the time.

Gamblers Help Northern is also based at BCH and can be contacted at 1300 133 445.

ReSPIN Gambling Awareness Speakers Bureau is a project of the North East Primary Care Partnership (NEPCP), based at BCH and offers lived experience speakers to health and community groups, large and small. Speakers address the bigger picture as well as their personal experience of addiction and recovery.
