Where to get support

Three ways to get help:

1. Ring the Problem Gambling Helpline — 1800 858 858

Talking to someone about your gambling can make a huge difference to your life. It may help you gain a better perspective on how it's affecting you and your loved ones and lead to you taking steps to make lasting changes.

The phone line is open 24 hours a day, all calls are anonymous and won't be listed on your phone bill if calling from a landline. If you don't gamble, but you are affected by gambling, you can call to find out more about gambling related problems and how to deal with them.

2. Speak with a counsellor at Gambling Help WA

If you're thinking of seeking help, remember, you don't have to do it alone. There are professionals available to support you and your family if you're dealing with the negative impacts of gambling.

Centrecare's Gambling Help WA is a free counselling service that offers a supportive environment for people to talk about the impact gambling has on their lives, as well as helping gamblers learn new ways to manage their behaviour. Regular counselling sessions are offered to individuals, couples and families.

If you want extended support in gaining the skills and confidence to control your gambling, you can attend a 10-week group program. The program is structured to provide you with personal insights and practical ways to manage your gambling behaviour.

Free financial advice

Gambling Help WA also offers a free financial counselling service for anyone experiencing the effects of financial hardship caused by problem gambling.
