Mental Health Problems

Do excessive video game or Internet users commonly have mental health problems?

It is not uncommon for excessive video game or Internet users to experience depression and/or anxiety. Excessive use has also been linked with substance use, other behavioural problems (compulsive shopping, pathological gambling) and personality disorders (borderline and narcissistic). It remains unclear whether excessive use is a cause or a consequence of these other difficulties.
