The Problem Gam- bling Foundation saw a 2.2 percent increase in the number of under-25s seeking counselling last year. More than half of them were women. National public health practice leader Tony Milne says there is con- cern about increase in the number of young people seeking help but there's more concern about those who are not. It is preferable to pro- vide treatment for people before their gambling goes on to become a more serious problem for them, so the earlier they seek help the better. That treatment includes support and advice on how to keep themselves safe such as not taking credit or eftpos cards to the casino and information on how to self-ban from a pokie venue or online TAB.'' The numbers seeking help for internet gam- bling are still relatively low in comparison to pokie machines, he says. Pokie machines are still the most harmful form of gambling with 59.5 percent of those under 25 seeking help for problems with pokie machines.''
