They will be putting on an exciting event to launch ‘The Big Fish’ animation in ten different languages! ‘The Big Fish’ is a story about how online betting can entrap you and how to get free from it.
The Assistant Minister to the Premier, the Hon. Jing Lee MLC will open the event. The SA Mental Health Commissioner, Chris Burns CSC will speak about the intersection between mental health and gambling.
The event will conclude by awarding certificates to all the ambassadors and volunteers who assisted with the translating the video into the ten different languages.
