New resource available for problem gamblers What is GamTalk? GamTalk is a service for anyone who gambles (or used to gamble) and their family and friends. The key purpose of GamTalk is to provide community based support and information for dealing with a gambling issue. Typically, visitors to GamTalk read the stories posted in the forums by other members and, when they are ready, begin to discuss their own situation. Visitors can join GamTalk to start posting messages, or can chat straight away as a guest in our chat room. One of the benefits that visitors frequently report is that it helps them to feel less alone. This is particularly helpful for someone who may be experiencing gambling problems and who hasn’t yet talked to anyone about it. It takes a lot of courage to start talking to family, friends, or even professionals about gambling problems. Talking on GamTalk is easy because it is completely anonymous, simple to access, free, and there are other people there who have gone through the same experiences. This means that people are more likely to talk on GamTalk sooner, and this can help prevent a smaller issue becoming a major problem. Also, it is a good way to ask questions and find out what other support/treatment options are available both locally and nationally.
