If you love KnowTheOdds, then you should take a few minutes to check out the new website for the New York Council on Problem Gambling. If you’ve visited the NYCPG website in the past, you’ll probably notice that things look a little different now. We wanted to make our site easier to explore, and better display some of our new resources.
While our online appearance has changed, our mission has not. The New York Council on Problem Gambling is a not-for-profit independent corporation dedicated to increasing public awareness about problem and compulsive gambling and advocating for support services and treatment for persons adversely affected by problem gambling. NYCPG maintains a neutral stance on gambling, and is governed by a Board of Directors.
We understand that problem gambling touches people of all cultures and professions, impacting adults, teens and children. We strive to provide resources and information to help all those affected. In addition to KnowTheOdds, we have a few other new resources that might be useful in your quest to learn more about problem gambling and to help us raise awareness of the issue across NYS.
You can help teenaged youth understand the realities and the potential consequences of gambling, and empower them to share their knowledge with their peers, parents and communities. You(th) Decide NY provides resources to help you educate your teenager and support your teen’s power to make healthy decisions about gambling.
Are you interested in learning more about youth gambling and the risks? This NYCPG resource is chocked full of good information and tools for parents of young children, including a video, worksheets, storybook and more.
We hope you like our new website and resources! Take a look around our new site, and let us know what you think.
