While problem gambling is experienced throughout the United States, BIPOC groups are affected at a higher rate, with some groups experiencing gambling disorders at twice the rate of the general population. Often, these same groups experience cultural stigma related to getting help, and that can lead to feelings of shame, stress, anger, or depression.

Resources for Behavioral Health and Peer Professionals
The continuum of problem gambling affects about 1% to 3% of the population in the United States but, unfortunately, disproportionately impacts our BIPOC communities. Within each diverse community are a specific set of circumstances, cultural traditions, and views on mental health that must be considered in a treatment plan for gambling recovery. Find training, tools, and resources to help you provide equitable, effective treatment.
