Event description

Description

Gambling almost cost Ian everything, including his life. Exposed to gambling at a young age, he was a regular gambler by the age of 16 and a problem gambler by the age of 19. Over three decades he lost more than a million dollars, married and divorced twice, and became estranged from his children. Ian battled anxiety and depression and three times attempted suicide.

Now a reformed gambler who has rekindled his relationship with family and friends, achieved financial stability and recovered his mental health, Ian speaks openly about his experience with gambling addiction and mental illness.
