Statewide, the New York State Problem Gambling Resource Centers have been working on connecting the dots between various issues that are concerning the public. One example of this is how gambling addiction affects the unhoused community and the military veterans. Another population that we are connecting the dots with are those who are affected by domestic violence and intimate partner violence.
Did you know that about 1/3 of those with a gambling problem report being a victim or perpetrator of physical intimate partner violence (Dowling et al, 2016/17). October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we want to raise awareness with all the amazing organizations that are helping those in need and educate the community about how closely connected these two issues are. For more information about these close connections please email us at Mid-HudsonPGRC@nyproblemgambling.org We offer social media posts, community/organizational training, and informational handouts.
