The 'TalkBanStop' initiative

On Thursday 17th December the ‘TalkBanStop’ initiative went live. This is a partnership between GamCare, Gamban and GAMSTOP to help anyone experiencing gambling harms to start their recovery journey.

As part of the marketing campaign, I was invited to appear on a video alongside former Premier League football Michael Chopra to talk about our personal experience of gambling harms, and why it’s so important to get the right support and barriers in place to help (check out the video and poster below).

On a personal note, I think it’s wonderful to see these three organisations collaborating, because I know through my own lived-experience that this will help and, quite possibly, save many lives.
