CESPHN is helping you to address gambling harm in the area where you work:

Did you know:

  • Australia has the highest gambling losses in the world
  • NSW has the highest losses to poker machines
  • Canterbury-Bankstown LGA has the highest daily electronic gaming machine losses
  • Gambling is associated with serious harms to health, including suicide (2023 Victorian study published in The Lancet).

CESPHN has been funded by the Office of Responsible Gambling’s Community Benefit Payment Scheme to support GPs, allied health and community services to help support the community to overcome gambling harm.

CESPHN will host a CPD webinar for GPs on Tuesday 28 May that aims to help health professionals identify management and referral strategies for patients experiencing issues with gambling.

CESPHN will be hosting a community seminar in August to discuss gambling harm in the local community and will create bilingual community navigators to assist GPs and community members to access support through a social prescribing model.
