|Problem Gambling Screening
Be sure to sign up for your screening event! We want to be able to promote your screening event. Screening for problem gambling is so important because it could be the very first step to someone’s path of recovery. Are you screening for problem gambling?
During Recovery Month, this September, NYCPG is encouraging everyone to screen people for problem gambling. There are many brief screening tools available. Visit the NYCPG website for screening tools, materials and tips. Did I mention these are brief screens? If you’re not able to provide treatment or resources for someone who screens positive, that’s okay, you can refer them to the Problem Gambling Resource Center in your area!
Don’t forget to let us know that you’re going to be holding problem gambling screenings during September by taking a moment to fill out a brief survey. It will only take a minute for you to give me your name, agency, and dates you’ll be providing screening.
If you have a website or social media pages, feel free to share our eScreener link so people can do a self-assessment.
