Research Opportunity: Gambling Related Harms and Help Seeking Behavior

Have you sought help for gambling in any way?

Please consider participating in this study.

This research is being conducted by Dr. Michelle L. Malkin, faculty member at East Carolina University.

The purpose of this research is to better understand the experiences around gambling that cause people to seek help and the potential gambling-related harms experienced along the way, including personal perceptions and experiences around self-exclusion and other types of “responsible gaming” tools.

The goal is to learn more about the progression of gambling-related harms and what tools have best assisted individuals seeking help for their gambling behavior.

Participant Criteria:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must have a history of problem gambling and/or be seeking help due to their own gambling behavior
  • Must be able to read English
