To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the number of people diagnosed with mental health problems caused by gambling-related harm.
25 July 2018
The Government has not made any formal assessment of people diagnosed with mental health problems caused by gambling-related harm. We are currently developing a new version of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) dataset to improve data collection in this area that we will use to capture gambling related mental health problems in the future. We are aiming to introduce the updated dataset by the end of 2019, which will also enable us to evaluate IAPT outcomes for people with gambling problems.
