The Roller Coaster of Gambling Addiction
In response to the 2018 South Australian Gambling Prevalence Survey, PEACE Multicultural Services designed and delivered two projects. PEACE delivered resilience building training to young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The two-day training has strengthened participants’ capacity to manage life challenges, including gambling related issues.
Additionally, PEACE produced a video showcasing collective stories about gambling, its potential harm and journey towards recovery. The short film is titled the “Roller Coaster of Gambling Addiction” and highlights the collective stories of consumers from diverse backgrounds who have been impacted by gambling, and shows their journey of recovery. The Commissioner of Consumer Affairs and Liquor & Gambling Mr. Dini Soulio launched the video during an event organised for Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2019 on 21st October 2019 at Para Hills Community Hub. The event was attended by a number of volunteers, service providers and community members.
