Problem Gambling

The ‘Games People Play Project’ is sponsored by the Government of Western Australia, Department of Local Government and Communities.

This is a new program at MSCWA, which aims to support people from culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) Communitieswhose lives have been impacted by problem gambling.

Gambling is a global activity and as age-old as humanity.  Its only when the individual loses control is when gambling becomes a problem, because it affects the individual as well as the family.
