Problem gambling in the media and entertainment industries

problem gambling in the media industry

EPIC understands that high salaries and spare time are a prime environment for problem gambling in the media and entertainment industries. Many celebrities are regularly in the press and live their lives through a lens in the public eye. Gambling can provide escapism, anonymity and a way of using their wealth in an enjoyable way. It can also be a way of dealing with rejection and pressure.

EPIC provides support at every level, from working with management companies and agents to help prevent and identify a gambling issue, through to signposting discreet psychological interventions for any high profile celebrity.
