It’s time to look properly at the types of gambling available and their role in causing such severe harm to people.” Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, said earlier this year: “The links between problem gambling and stress, depression and mental health problems are growing and there are too many stories of lives lost and families destroyed.” He added: “This is an industry that splashes £1.5bn on marketing and advertising campaigns, much of it now pumped out online and through social media, but it has been spending just a fraction of that helping customers and their families deal with the direct consequences of addiction.” - -
