Gambling harm prevention is an important consideration for anyone who gambles. It involves understanding about the risks of gambling, actively monitoring activity, and being aware of the resources available to people experiencing gambling-related harm. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to preventing gambling harm, so developing tailored strategies to meet individual, community, and societal needs is key. Warning signs to look out for include an increase in the amount spent and time devoted to gambling, trying to win back losses, and borrowing to gamble. If you are concerned for yourself, a friend or loved one, there are a variety of professional organizations and services that provide specialized support for individuals, families, and communities affected by gambling harm.
