Problem Gambling & Mental Health

In honor of Mental Health Month, the NYCPG wishes to raise awareness of the relationship between problem gambling and mental health.  

When we discuss problem gambling and its affects on individuals and their families, we need to talk about their mental health.  We need to discuss how their mental health impacts an individual’s gambling, and how their gambling affects their mental health and the mental health of their loved ones.
