Problem Gambling Awareness Month Kickoff Event

Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) is a grassroots campaign of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) that depends on the participation of NCPG state Affiliate, organizational and individual members, state health agencies, gambling companies, recovery groups and a wide range of healthcare organizations and providers throughout the country.

Every March, groups across America hold conferences, air Public Service Announcements, provide counselor trainings, host health screening days, run social media campaigns and many other activities to increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment and recovery services.

The goals of this national campaign are:
  • To increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment & recovery services.
  • To encourage healthcare providers to screen clients for problem gambling.

The free event will feature representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the Pennsylvania Lottery, the Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania and treatment providers from agencies throughout Pennsylvania.
