July Is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Also known as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Mental Health Month. This July, the Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling (the Center) invites you to join us in promoting health equity issues of minorities with problem gambling prevention. Maryland data shows minority populations are at a greater risk of problem gambling behaviors. Help us raise awareness of this health disparity and work to create equity in awareness, education, prevention, treatment, and recovery for all Black, Indigenous, and People of Color with a gambling problem or a disorder.

May is Mental Health Month

With mental health entering more and more of our daily conversations, it’s critical that everyone has a solid foundation of knowledge about mental health. That’s why for Mental Health Month this year we are going Back to Basics.

Live a Less-Stressed Life

Start today and acknowledge that stress happens. By implementing self-care tools, you and your family can minimize stress and enjoy a healthier, happier life.

Child Neglect and Problem Gambling

Families, in any formation, are the core of our communities. It is through awareness, collaboration and support that we keep families and the communities they live in strong, healthy and vibrant. Problematic and addictive behavior in adults can threaten the very foundation of a healthy and safe environment – and often, children are the easiest target for release of anger and frustration.

Alcohol and Gambling Addiction – Not a Good Mix!

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, a national public health awareness campaign developed to increase awareness and understanding of the causes and treatment of alcoholism. Established in 1987, alcohol awareness month allows communities to focus on spreading awareness and reducing the stigma associated with alcohol addiction. Adding problematic gambling behavior into the mix of frequent alcohol consumption increases the risk of harm and addiction.
