Sometimes, self-screening tools can help people decide if they are ready to reach out for support for problems related to someone’s gambling. The questions below are from the Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI). 1This tool is based on common signs and consequences of problem gambling. The questions and your answers can help you determine your risk for developing a gambling problem.
As you move through the questions in the tool, think about your current and past gambling behaviors, or the behaviors of a loved one. After you submit your answers, the tool will give you personalized feedback and resources.
*NOTE: This screening tool is completely anonymous. We are not tracking any individual’s answers and will not ask you any personal or identifying information.
