PrizePicks, the largest daily fantasy sports operator in North America, and Kindbridge Behavioral Health, a pioneering mental health service provider dedicated to supporting individuals facing challenges related to problem gaming, announced a groundbreaking collaboration that will provide access to Kindbridge’s top-tier clinical services at no initial cost to PrizePicks players and customer-facing employees. The program will support problem gaming prevention, treatment and recovery efforts.

“We are proud to partner with Kindbridge and to be the first operator to cover program costs entirely, removing a significant barrier to access. It’s essential that the fantasy sports industry invests and innovates in the area of responsible gaming. This initiative not only helps players and employees but also strengthens PrizePicks’ role in promoting social responsibility within the industry. By addressing both prevention and treatment, we are paving the way for a healthier gaming community,” Adam Wexler, Co-founder and CEO of PrizePicks, said.

PrizePicks will incur all initial costs of Kindbridge’s comprehensive support services for its customer-facing employees and player community, setting a new benchmark in the DFS industry for responsible gaming and problem gaming support. Players on PrizePicks and customer support employees will have immediate access to an in-depth clinical assessment, clinical review and care plan development session, as well as access to educational and peer support groups.
