Mario Bird - a lived experience of gambling harm

Mario Bird - a lived experience of gambling harm

Mario Bird talks about his experience of gambling harm.

Mario began betting at 16, with wins at the TAB making him feel like a king. Obsession and addiction soon set in, and by 2007 he was multi-betting on the horses and his life began to fall apart. Mario’s talk will be interspersed with humorous anecdotes while also being honest about the challenges on the road to recovery.

A halal sausage sizzle for Gambling Harm Awareness Week will be held at the Itiki Sporting Club, ATC Cook Reserve, Ash Court, Glenroy from 6.30 pm.

Registration not required.
