Gambling can quickly get out of control. The odds are against you and, in the long run, you’ll never get ahead. It’s designed that way.
If gambling is affecting you or your family, you can use the Gamblers Help service. You can receive free personal or family counselling and group support. Learn strategies to help you or others get a grip on gambling.
If you’d like a ‘self-exclusion order’ that bars you from gambling areas in Tasmania, we can arrange that. We can provide support and encouragement, too. If you are a community member in an area that has a gambling issue, we can arrange an educational workshop.
