Region 5 Problem Gambling awareness Team
The Region 5 Problem Gambling Awareness Team consists of community stakeholders working toward raising awareness around disordered gambling and helping connect those in need to treatment. The team meets quarterly to review gambling trends and access to treatment.
We host gambling awareness trainings and webinars. We hold an event during Problem Gambling Awareness Month in March which includes testimonials from those with lived experience, and community education. Many of our team members have achieved the credentials for The Problem Gambling Certificate of Competency. There is also a Youth Peer Leadership component with an opportunity for a group of our area youth to attend trainings and create a public service announcement with a problem gambling focus.
Our partners include DMHAS Problem Gambling Services, The CT Council on Problem Gambling and MCCA.
