Suicide & Crisis Lifeline


Gambling addiction yields a higher suicide rate per capita than any other known addictive disorder: An estimated 80% of individuals struggling with gambling addiction consider committing suicide and 20% actually attempt to take their own lives. This represents roughly twice the rate of most other addictions. 

If you or someone you know is struggling or in crisis, help is available. Call or text 988 or chat
