Colorado is now testing an innovative pilot program designed to link problem gamblers with easy-to-access mental health care.
This week, BetMGM and Tennessee-based Kindbridge Behavioral Health announced the launch of a new initiative that will provide access to mental health services for self-excluded gamblers. In a BetMGM press release, they said:
“The first-of-its-kind partnership will empower self-excluded players with direct access to comprehensive mental health assessments and group support services. The pilot program provides resources for players in need to schedule appointments immediately with specialized problem gambling outpatient treatment providers via telehealth services.”
