Voices of Gambling Harm

News & Events

It can be entertaining to play a game of chance, but when does gambling start become harmful?

Markus is our lead Peer Support and Community Engagement worker providing Gambling Support. He has lived experience of gambling harm in his own life, bringing a unique passion to supporting others impacted by the harmful aspects of gambling.

His personal experiences mean he can relate to the challenges of others and provide non-judgemental support.

The Voices of Gambling Harm project lead by Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT) provided an opportunity for Markus to share his story and how reaching out for support started his road to recovery.  


For 24/7 support please call the National Free Helpline on 1800 858 858 or visit the Gambling Support Service for more information.
