Gambling, Gaming, and Technology Use Knowledge Exchange

Registered Member ·
I want to share a blog I wrote not long before the WHO made their announcement about Video Gaming Disorder being recognized as an official disorder. I first wrote and published a book about the transition between parenting your child and your adult child, as I found those years more challenging. Included in my story was part of the journey of my adult son's crisis through video gaming addiction. An organizer of Mindfest read the book and asked me to speak about Video Gaming Addiction. I...

Looking forward to continuing to read posts and receive notifications about webinars!

Hi, my name is Andrew Karagianis. I'm a Social Service Worker/Gambling Addiction Case Worker at Good Shepherd Ministries in Toronto. I'm part of a 3-year Gambling Addiction Pilot Project, which is addressing problem gambling among adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. I first heard of this community of interest at a CAMH training course last week, and thought it would be a good idea to join, and see what I can learn from other people!

Hi Andrew, I am a public health nurse working on the gambling file in Ottawa. Do you know if any organizations supporting homeless individuals in Ottawa are aware of higher rate of gambling harm with homeless individuals? They are certainly a group I want to reach out to but thought I would see if you had any links to Ottawa.

Hi Susan, I personally don't have any links to Ottawa, although I've noticed that there is another member of this Community of Interest who is involved in Good Shepherd's project, who might have an answer. I'm not sure about the etiquette (or technical ability) of tagging other people into conversations on this website yet, but I'll e-mail the person and get back to you (or, message me next week if I haven't gotten back to you yet).

Hi, My name is Flora Matheson. I am a scientist at the Centre for Urban Health Solutions at St. Michael’s Hospital and work in the area of gambling, poverty and homelessness. I have been working with Good Shepherd since 2014 on this issue. We’ve been finding that there is a lack of awareness in general among this population. We have been developing guides and information to create awareness. We also have a training module on poverty, gambling and homelessness that we are happy to deliver.
