Problem Gambling Awareness: A Community Engaged – March 9, 2019

East Las Las Vegas Community Center
Las Vegas, NV 89101
Saturday March 9, 2019
1:00PM – 4:00PM

Problem Gambling is a community and public health matter. So is Recovery!  If you don’t think problem gambling impacts you…think again.  Statistics show that 6% of Nevadans are, or will become, problem  gamblers.  Statistics also show that for every ONE compulsive gambler, another TEN individuals are impacted – their spouse, children, parents, employer and friends.   Behind the “statistics” are people:)  That’s why the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling is hosting this event  focusing on “the very human side of problem gambling.”

I  like that the Council is focusing on the “Celebration” of Problem Gambling Awareness month! The focus is on the solution and supporting a healthy lifestyle.  We will hear from folks in recovery, peers and professionals, who will share how and why they became engaged in promoting awareness. These same folks will share actives that encourage healthy living, joy and recovery.  (I’ll be doing a line-dancing demo so THAT should be fun.  LOL.  I’m definitely a beginner!)

Whether you’re an advocate, a person in recovery, a policy maker or an engaged community member, please join me and Lanie’s Hope as we support the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling for Problem Gambling Awareness: A Community Engaged.

Faith-based recovery programs, secular programs, professional therapy and intensive outpatient are just a few alternative “doors.”  As long as individuals struggling with Gambling Disorder seek help, there is nor wrong door to enter for recovery!

Walk in Memory/Walk for Hope- Sept 15, 2018 8AM, Bob Miller Middle School, 2400 Cozy Circle, Henderson, Nevada

Lanie’s Hope Walk Team

Lanie’s Hope’s proudly supports the Walk in Memory/Walk for Hope.  We walk to remember those who have been lost to suicide, to honor the family members and survivors, and to shine a light of hope for those who may be considering suicide. Compulsive Gamblers have the HIGHEST suicide rate of any group, with 1 in 5 compulsive gamblers considering or attempting suicide.

In 2014, the walk  was dedicated to raising awareness of  gambling addiction and suicide.  I was honored and humbled to serve as the keynote speaker. I made a promise to myself and to God to spend my life raising awareness of the social issues surrounding problem gambling. I would do ANYTHING within my power to prevent just one death due to a gambling related suicide. Lanie’s Hope’s website gets more “hits” on the topic of “suicide” than any other topic. Compulsive gamblers who are struggling are reaching out for help. Suicide is obviously on the minds of too many compulsive gamblers! Won’t you please walk with us this year, and raise awareness of gambling addiction and suicide.

I invite each of you to walk with us on Saturday, September 15, 2018, as we take suicide and gambling addiction out of the darkness and into the light.

Blessings,

Bea Aikens
