'Gambling was as normal as breathing'
Kerri Nicholls lost more than £45,000 due to gambling online.
This supports the data seen by GT during COVID
"Mental illness and gambling are not separate conditions to treat individually; they’re all intertwined. What we’ve seen with COVID is people using gambling to soothe stress or to get away." - aka, gambling is often used as a coping mechanism.
Reaching out for help with gambling is a huge 1st step and picking up the phone is difficult so we have introduced a "talk to us" online text option so you can chat with one of our advisers anonymously. Available mon-fri 8am-2am and 10am-10pm on a weekend. http://www.gordonmoody.org.uk
