Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There is a significant gap between acknowledging concerns related to one’s gambling and seeking assistance for those concerns. In this case study session, the BC Responsible and Problem Gambling Program (BC RPG) will share how their Gam Info Rep program, a unique community support model or service, has helped facilitate different forms of support for those who experience problems with their gambling. The program is unique to B.C. and has helped reduce gambling-related stigma and increase the uptake of support services by applying key principles of connection, compassion, inclusion and reducing barriers. Joining Mr. Koo are Gam Info Reps who will share stories from their experiences in the field.
