This March, the New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) is excited to partner with statewide agencies, regional and local groups and organizations throughout New York State to make strides in raising awareness of problem gambling in the state. At the state and regional levels, NYCPG is partnering with the National Alliance of Mental Illness-NYS (NAMI-NYS) as well as the Mental Health Association of NYS, Inc. (MHANYS, Inc.) to shed light on the fact that gambling disorder is in fact a mental illness and, like most other mental illnesses, it is preventable and treatable with appropriate care.
