Gambling harm: comorbidities, treatment and referral
This webinar will provide an overview of the prevalence of gambling harm in NSW. Research has indicated that gambling problems are strongly associated with comorbid disorders, such as mental health disorders and addictive disorders, and that people with gambling problems have a higher rate of psychological disorders than the general community.
Many people with gambling problems are not being identified because their symptoms are masked by other disorders and are often hidden due to stigma and shame. Gambling harm has a direct impact on patient outcomes.
This session will explore how to provide psycho-education for patients who are experiencing gambling harm, as well as strategies for management and referral resources specific to NSW.


This webinar will be recorded and participants will receive a copy of the recording following the webinar.
