What’s New:

The Staten Island PGRC would like to thank Linda Wilson from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) – Staten Island chapter for inviting the PGRC to speak at the families in recovery information night about the overlap between problem gambling and mental health. We had a lively and productive discussion and look forward to further collaboration with NAMI Staten Island in educating the community about mental health, addiction, stigma and where to get help.  

The Staten Island PGRC would like to thank Jazmin Rivera and Abby Batista from Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness for honoring our Team Leader for her participation in the Social Norms workgroup during the Tackling Youth Substance Abuse (TYSA) Coalition’s World Café event. We are delighted to be a part of the TYSA coalition and learning more about how we can support the existing addiction prevention activities that have already made impactful changes on Staten Island.
