Once communities have a common understanding of prevention science and how problem gambling intersects with other behavioral health issues such as substance misuse and suicide, the next step is to identify and implement strategies and ways to address multiple behavioral health issues as well as evaluate these efforts to see if they are impacting shared risk and protective factors and achieving the intended outcomes. This advanced training will examine the unique intersections of problem gambling and other behavioral health issues, identify strategies that can address shared risk and protective factors with a focus on filling gaps on ones that are not currently being addressed in the community, as well as how to collect and monitor data to illustrate the effectiveness of these strategies to build community buy-in to sustain these efforts in the long term to improve people’s health across behavioral health issues.
