Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2021
18-24 October was Gambling Harm Awareness week in Victoria and this year the #RethinkAddiction campaign joined forces with The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation to highlight the stories of people with a lived experience of gambling addiction.
On 22 October, #RethinkAddiction joined a virtual event hosted by The Salvation Army to discuss the role of stigma in preventing people seeking information and help. The event was a big success, and we would like to thank The Salvation Army for inviting us to attend.
