    The Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), the Dutch Gambling Authority, has named Dr Marloes Kleinjan as the latest addition to its Advisory Board, with a focus on mental health among young consumers.

    Kleinjan has experience in the academic study of risk behaviour and young people’s mental wellbeing, having been involved in studies into ‘interfaces between gaming and gambling’ as part of her wider work in the field.

    Her position on the Advisory Council of the KSA will see the appointee focus on prevention of gambling addiction and mental health in relation to games of finance, cooperating with other members of the body, first established in 2014.
