Governor Brian Sandoval has proclaimed the month of March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month in Nevada.
Problem Gambling Awareness Month is a grass-roots campaign conducted by the National Council on Problem Gambling and its 35 state affiliate Councils on Problem Gambling to raise awareness of the warning signs of problem gambling and the resources for help. This annual campaign is also a celebration of the men and women who are successfully recovering from a gambling problem.
