Gaming Addiction Is Now An Official Mental Health Disorder

Video gaming has exploded in popularity, and now there is "gaming disorder".
The new ICD edition also includes chapters on traditional medicine, which never had been classified, as well as a new chapter on sexual health that brings together conditions previously categorized in other ways.
It also deems a player's continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences (i.e. lack of sleep) as a significant impairment.
For instance, some people working on stroke have always been pushing for it to be moved from circulatory diseases, where it has been for 6 decades, into neurological disease, where it now sits in ICD-11.
Others welcomed WHO's new classification, saying it was critical to identify video game addicts quickly because they are usually teenagers or young adults who don't seek help themselves. For example, say that your child has to do their homework first and/or get out and play for an hour before they're allowed to game. There is no doubt that there are people who are likely to end up addicted to playing games, although this is more likely a symptom of some other issue.
To be clear, the medical community isn't exactly rushing in to take everyone's video games away.
Doctors now recognise persistent and compulsive gaming behaviour as a mental health disorder.

In its new draft on the International Classification of Diseases manual released yesterday, the World Health Organization has now classified excessive compulsive gaming as a disorder.
In the US, there are some private treatment facilities that deal with gaming addiction, and interest in the issue is growing amid a broader discussion about more general problematic technology use.
