Ohio for Responsible Gambling, the statewide partnership of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Ohio Casino Control Commission, the Ohio Lottery, and the Ohio Racing Commission, has announced its new responsible gambling awareness campaign.

The campaign, "Be the 95%," is focused on preventing problem gambling and increasing awareness of resources for higher risk individuals. Targeted to those who have influence on problem gamblers and those at higher risk, including parents, spouses, siblings and friends, the campaign provides access to a web site that includes tools for low-risk gambling, as well as a problem gambling screening feature.

More information and the tools available through the campaign are available at www.the95percent.org.
