Health Professionals

Gambling harms are a significant and increasingly common issue in Australia.It can be associated with depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders. Health professionals are an important point of contact for those with gambling issues and can assist with early diagnosis and connecting people to gambling services. 

Often, those with gambling issues regularly visit their GPs and also experience more stress-related illnesses including high blood pressure, insomnia and migraine and often present with symptoms that appear unrelated to gambling such as depression, anxiety, stomach upsets and headaches.
