Gambling Harm Awareness Week

GHAW Calendar Logo_2023

About the week

During Gambling Harm Awareness Week, we encourage people to talk about the harms associated with gambling and the effects they can have on communities, families, friends, workplaces and individuals. Gambling harm can affect self-esteem, relationships, physical and mental health, work performance and social life.

The week focuses on personal stories of recovery, which are powerful because they offer a sense of hope and optimism. They also encourage open community discussions that help to reduce stigma, which can be a barrier to help seeking.

2023 dates and theme

Gambling Harm Awareness Week was held from 16 to 22 October 2023.

The theme continued to be Talk. Share. Support. Foundation activity focused on supporting Victorians to have a conversation with someone whose gambling behaviour is becoming a concern.

The Foundation developed resources (including in-language) to support people to talk more openly about gambling harm.

These resources, as well as other promotional materials are available to our partners and community organisations.
