In the 1990s, headlines such as “Viet gangs take over heroin trade” were commonplace in Australian national newspapers.

My father Mr Vinh Van Le, was a prominent social worker here in the Vietnamese Community here in Adelaide. During this time, my father volunteered to research and author a parenting guide titled “Every child is the same as a little baby”.

Dr Huu Kim Le on Triple J Hack 18th June 2018

Last year, Dr Le featured on Triple J Hack’s segment on Internet Gaming Disorder (DSM-5).

Tune into Triple J Hack this afternoon as Dr Le will discuss the inclusion of Gaming Disorder into the WHO ICD-11 announcement, today 1730pm AEST.

What does this recognition mean for those seeking help for gaming disorder?

This will increase public awareness and recognition of gaming disorder as a serious modern day health issue. The potential flow-on effect is that gaming disorder can no longer be ignored by the computer games industry, local governments and most of all the consumer of internet games. This will hopefully lead to better access to effective prevention, assessment and management programs.
