The Multicultural Gambler's Help Program (MGHP) is a program of the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health.
We work with the problem gambling and multicultural community sectors to:
- build knowledge of problem gambling
- improve access to problem gambling services among migrant and refugee communities
- assist communities to develop prevention strategies
- support culturally appropriate and responsive service provision
Our services include:
We offer free and tailor-made training to Gambler's Help services on cultural competence, cross-cultural communication and intake and assessment. We also organise workshops, forums and seminars with ethno-specific, multicultural and community organisations on problem gambling assessment, referral and early intervention strategies.
We build partnerships between Gambler's Help and ethno-specific services to raise awareness of problem gambling, address barriers to help seeking, develop social marketing campaigns and support culturally appropriate services.
Research and consultation
We undertake research with migrant and refugee communities on problem gambling and strategies for help seeking.
We produce resources on problem gambling, tailored to the cultural and linguistic needs of migrant and refugee communities.
We offer a comprehensive information service on problem gambling in culturally diverse communities, including a specialist library and an eNewsletter.
We distribute information and promote Gambler's Help services at a wide range of cultural events and festivals.
