  • Addictive video gaming recognised as mental health disorder

Gaming addiction is a term which has been used a lot by parents as well as mental health experts who actually believe that it is a mental disorder.

Gaming addiction has become yesterday a mental disorder according to the World Health Organization, and the decision will become effective as of January 2019.

Additional coverage of the new International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) is available from The Advocate, HuffPost, Los Angeles Times, Out, and Wired. This classification doesn't refer to casual gamers, but those people who let playing video games take "precedence over other life interests and daily activities" so much that it causes "significant impairment in personal, family, social, education, occupational or other important areas of functioning".

The ICD-11 states that such a gaming disorder pattern should persist for at least one year for a diagnosis to be made but in severe cases when the symptoms are acute, exceptions can be made.

Even though the ICD-11 will not be formally adopted by all the 194 member nations of the World Health Organization until next year, the announcement of the final ICD-11 version yesterday was carried out to five the nations enough time to implement the changes.

Basically, if gaming wins out over other responsibilities - including familial and financial - over 12 months or so, it can be considered as a legitimate disorder that needs treatment.

The new World Health Organization gaming disorder classification "is significant because it creates the opportunity for more specialized services", Richard Graham, lead technology addiction specialist at the Nightingale Hospital in London, told the BBC in 2017. "It puts it on the map as something to take seriously".
