Gambling Help Online (GHO) is run by Turning Point and funded as part of an agreement between all state and territory governments and the Australian Government.
GHO provides 24 hour online chat (real time) counselling, 24 hour email-based counselling and support, a range of web-based self-help information and referral and support materials.
These services are confidential and freely available to all Australians including those concerned about their own or another’s gambling, the broader community, health and welfare practitioners who may come into contact with people experiencing gambling problems, and gambling venues.
It provides Australians with an opportunity to access counselling and information services when they are unable or reluctant to access face-to-face services provided in each jurisdiction.
This service complements and increases the range of services available in responding to problem gambling issues by offering a private and anonymous way to seek professional support online with an immediate response.
