The silent struggle

Although as many as 1.6 million people in England might need help with gambling, only 3% of them reach out for support. Gambling harm can come in many different forms. Take some time to think about signs you might already be concerned about and if at any time you need to speak to someone we are here 24/7 on 0808 8020 133.

Understand the signs of gambling harm

Gambling harm is not only something that affects people gambling excessively. It can bring a spectrum of difficulties affecting mental health, relationships, financial stability, and overall well-being. It can be closer to home than you think affecting friends, colleagues, neighbours or family.



It can happen to anyone

The more we know and understand about gambling harms, the more we can start to chip away at the stigma that surrounds it. Knowing the facts and starting conversations will help shift public perception to understanding that this is a mental health issue that can be treated.

At GamCare we have transformed thousands of lives away from gambling harm – and if you are concerned about yourself or someone close to you, we can help.


1.6 million in England may need gambling support.
