Gambling Harm Conference 2020: Every conversation counts
The Gambling Harm Conference is Australia’s only conference dedicated to addressing gambling harm in our communities. It brings together a diverse range of local and international speakers and delegates to share their knowledge, experience and expertise, to inspire new ideas.
Conversations involving all sectors touched by gambling harm are important because they provide a basis upon which we can challenge perceptions and address the stigma associated with gambling and other co-occurring issues such as mental health concerns.
The 2018 Gambling Harm Conference celebrated Aboriginal and First Nations cultures. The 2020 event will continue to explore how gambling harm affects Aboriginal communities. Building on the current optimism and progress towards self-determination, the conference will provide our Aboriginal partners further opportunities to discuss these crucial issues.
