Mercer County Problem Gambling Webinar: 101

Today, more people have access to, and are participating in, gambling activities than ever before. While the majority of the population is able to gamble without developing any issues, there are a small percentage of people who are unable to maintain responsible levels of play.  Unfortunately for these individuals, this often progresses to a point where several areas of their lives are impacted in a negative way. During this program participants will learn about the problem, how it develops and what help is available for someone who is suffering from gambling disorders.
