March is National Problem Gambling Awareness Month

March is National Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM), sponsored by the National Council on Problem Gambling.  Problem gambling is any gambling behavior that creates problems in a person’s life. Approximately 4-6 million adults in the United States deal with problem gambling while an additional 1-2 million reach the diagnostic level of Disordered Gambling.   From traditional casinos to video games and sports betting, gambling is a landscape that is constantly shifting. It is important to stay up to date with training on how best to prevent problem gambling in people of all ages. It is also important to show that recovery is possible and that there are treatment options available for those suffering with problem gambling.   
In recognition of Problem Gambling Awareness Month, Compass Mark is hosting lunch and learn webinars throughout March. I invite you to join us for these timely and important topics in gambling prevention.   ·   

March 7 – 12:00pm-1:00pm: Problem Gambling in an Aging Population ·   
March 14 – 12:00pm-1:00pm: Loot Boxes: What are they and how do they impact adolescents? ·   
March 21 – 12:00pm-1:00pm: Sports Gambling and Daily Fantasy Sports ·
