Funded through a foundation grant for clinical research on gambling, this project aimed to create guidelines to help members of the public assist people with gambling problems.
The guidelines cover:
- warning signs
- talking to a person with gambling problems about their concerns
- dealing with difficulties that may arise during this conversation
- encouraging help seeking
- providing support to help the person with gambling problems to change.
The guidelines are based on expert consensus and informed by evidence. They have been developed for promotion to the public as an appropriate way of recognising and responding to problem gambling and could be used in future research.
