Governor John Bel Edwards has proclaimed March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) in Louisiana, in collaboration with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG).
Now in its 20th year, Problem Gambling Awareness Month coincides with March Madness as an opportunity to raise awareness of problem gambling, which includes all gambling behavior patterns that compromise, disrupt or damage personal, family or vocational pursuits.
Call or text the Louisiana Problem Gambling Helpline at 1-877-770-STOP (7867) if you or someone you know has a gambling problem. For more information about problem gambling, go to LDH.LA.Gov/ProblemGambling.
