Harmful gambling can affect all aspects of a person's life - including their workplace. People who have harmful gambling behaviours may be stressed and distracted, making them unable to work to their full potential.
Approximately 250,000 New Zealanders experience harm from their gambling, so it's likely there will be someone in your workplace in this situation.
Gambling Harm Awareness Week runs from September 4-10, so September is the perfect time to highlight the harm that can come from gambling.
Keep an eye on Choice Not Chance to see what's planned for 2016. If you or someone you know needs help now, call the Gambling Helpline on 0800 654 654.
