Gambling with Lives was set up by the families and friends of young people who had taken their own lives as a direct result of gambling.
Gambling with Lives offers therapeutic mental health and bereavement support for families, couples, individuals, young people, and children affected by a gambling related suicide.
This can range from peer support and telephone check ins to professional counselling. We also offer support with complaints to the Gambling Commission, legal proceedings, and managing press interest.
Gambling with Lives aims to:
Support families who have been bereaved by gambling related suicides
Raise awareness amongst gamblers, their families and friends, and health professionals of the dangerous effects of gambling on mental health and the high suicide risk
