What You're Going to Learn

Rates of problem gambling are significantly higher among veterans, military recruits and those currently in the military compared with rates in the general population. Research suggests that Military personnel are at risk of experiencing negative consequences as a result of gambling related issues such as stress from financial debts, which may have a negative effect on military readiness. Furthermore, military and veteran populations are more prone to substance abuse, mental health problems and suicide, all of which are highly co-morbid with problem gambling.

This webinar will focus on research and policy developments over the past decade, including the recent NCPG victory requiring gambling disorder screening questions to be included in periodic health assessments for active duty soldiers conducted by the Department of Defense. NCPG Executive Director Keith Whyte will review the latest drafts of our legislation and discuss how members can advocate at local and national levels.
