The Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling (ECPG), an affiliate of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), is raising awareness of how problem gambling impacts individuals, families, and communities with a statewide media campaign produced in partnership with Washington State Health Care Authority at the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR).
Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) is a time to increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment, and recovery services, as well as to encourage healthcare providers to screen their clients for problem gambling and to make referrals for help services.
