TIGER - Who We Are
The Tennessee Institute for Gambling Education and Research (TIGER) started over two decades ago when we realized that individuals in our community were experiencing gambling related harm, and that assessment and treatment research to address gambling problems was needed. Our work has consistently received external funding since 2005. Current efforts are primarily funded by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
Create and actively manage an accessible, engaging evidence-based system of care to reduce the risk of gambling-related harms for all Tennesseans.
To be the best problem gambling research and clinical team in the world through our contributions to the understanding of the prevention, assessment, and treatment of gambling related harms.
