VICTORIA:  Stigma remains a significant issue for people experiencing gambling harm, with more than 50 per cent of adults who participated in the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation's 2017 community attitudes survey declaring most people would think less of a person who struggles with their gambling. Further, almost 60 per cent said most people would consider someone with a gambling problem to be unreliable and without self-control, and 45 per cent agreed many people would avoid a person in this situation. The annual survey findings were published today on the Foundation's revamped website, which features a new section - Gambling in Victoria - comprising the latest statistics, information and analysis about gambling, including gambling participation, community perceptions, harm and stigma.
