Sometimes someone else’s gambling can affect the health and well-being of others who may be concerned. The gambling behaviour is often hidden and unexpected, while its effects can be confusing, stressful and long-lasting.
To help us identify if this is a factor in your own well-being could you answer the questions below to the best of your ability.
This is an awareness-raising questionnaire that allows a person affected by another's gambling to indicate what assistance they desire. Oasis Centres work with the person affected by gambling as fully and seriously as the gamblers themselves.
