Problem Gambling Awareness Month is a grass-roots campaign promoted by the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling and the other 34 state affiliate Councils of the National Council on Problem Gambling.  Working together with community partners, like the City of Las Vegas, our goal is 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.
