Other sources of help for problem gambling
It’s important to talk to your family and friends about how you’re feeling, so that they can support you.
If this doesn’t feel right for you, you can always speak to a GP or another professional that you trust. You don’t have to struggle with difficult feelings on your own.
There are many services providing advice and support to help manage the impact of problem gambling and gambling addiction, such as debt, housing, legal or relationship advice, mental health and drug and alcohol services. Take a look at our recommended support sites below.
