Problem Gambling Awareness Month, now entering its 16th year, is a grassroots campaign fostered by the National Council on Problem Gambling and other organizations. Groups across America hold conferences, air Public Service Announcements, host screening days, run social media campaigns and many other activities to increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment & recovery services. The 2020 theme for Problem Gambling Awareness Month is “Awareness + Action.”
The Council on Chemical Abuse (COCA) recognizes Problem Gambling Awareness Month each year by hosting a community event that features a speaker, as well as a poster contest for children and teens who have received education from COCA about gambling and gaming. The 2019 poster contest theme was Gaming and Gambling: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
