The Nerd Reserve – 22 Gaming Addiction – Should It Be Considered A Mental Health Issue?

Welcome back to your favourite podcast!

This week, The Nerd Reserve’s Phil Logan flies solo and delivers an in-depth look into the debate raging amongst gamers, and academics, alike: Should the World Health Organisation classify ‘Gaming Addiction’ as a mental disorder?

Is this an appropriate response to precedents set where gamers have died? What does this mean for ‘normal’ gamers who incorporate games as part of a healthy lifestyle? Is this a slippery slope to wrongfully medicating teens/adolescents? Does this mask underlying mental health issues?

These are the questions being asked of the community, and the community asking of the governing health organisation.

So strap yourselves in friends, as Phil attempts to define, clarify and ultimately answer these questions.

Stay true, Nerd Reservers!
